People who encounter discrimination in the workplace often experience discrimination in other facets of their lives — education, housing, lending, transactions or simply going about their business in stores and places of public accommodation. Even police, the guardians of law and order, often apply justice unevenly depending on their biases against certain groups of people.
The Mount Laurel law firm of Costello & Mains, LLC, represents citizens of Burlington County, Camden County and through the state of New Jersey in lawsuits for illegal discrimination and civil rights violations. Contact us for a free case evaluation if you believe you have been wronged.
Civil Rights Discrimination Cases
Perhaps you were denied services because of your marital status, disabilities or age. Perhaps you were shadowed or asked to leave because of your race, your ethnicity or your perceived "lifestyle." Maybe you were profiled by police and roughed up because of the color of your skin or your foreign accent.
Our attorneys can pursue your legal remedies under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, the Civil Rights Act, and other state and federal civil rights legislation, including:
- Discrimination in places of public accommodation (businesses, malls, parks, etc.)
- Discrimination in education (disability/special needs, race/ethnicity, sexual identity/orientation)
- Discrimination in contracts (real estate, commerce, banking, etc.)
- Discrimination or misconduct by police/law enforcement
