Discrimination is the act of excluding or giving unequal treatment to a person due to their gender, age, race, nationality, health, religion, disability, pregnancy, genetics, sexual preference, among others. This action is prohibited under federal law; therefore, in the State of California, if someone has suffered discrimination, it can generate a claim and lawsuit.
At the offices of Mr. Magaña, our team can help you with the following situations:
We have extensive experience with cases involving violations of the Fifth Amendment. The Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment requires the United States government to practice equal protection. If an individual believes that their legal rights have been violated, either by the federal or state government, that person may file an equal protection claim against that government agency.
Additionally, at the national level, the government also promotes interracial respect to avoid discrimination based on racial profiling. Although it is claimed that the United States has entered a “post-racial era,” racial profiling remains a constant and a problem throughout the country. People of color face discrimination and are at risk of being stopped, questioned, and searched without valid grounds, based on biases about their race, ethnicity, and religious practices.
Another area in which our team is an expert is in defending cases where the victim has suffered violations against the First Amendment. The First Amendment is in place so that every citizen has religious freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and the right to assemble peacefully. The liberties granted by the First Amendment must not be violated or restricted under any circumstances.
If you or a loved one has suffered from any of these situations, we recommend contacting us as soon as possible. We will carefully analyze your case to generate a legal strategy that will allow you to win the case and receive the benefits you deserve. Call us today!
