What To Do If You’re Facing Discrimination
If you believe you have been a victim of illegal discrimination, you have options. A trained attorney proficient in discrimination laws can advise you on which of these options to choose, and it is generally advisable to take advantage of their services. Discrimination laws can be tough to grasp and particularly challenging to prove, so think twice before going it alone.
1. Consider Information Negotiations
Many legal disputes can be resolved without having to go through the courts. Sometimes a letter or a phone call from a persuasive and knowledgeable attorney is enough to achieve the result you’re hoping for.
2. Decide Whether A Complaint Should Be Filed With A State Or The Federal Agency
Depending on the situation, you will likely need a smart attorney to advise you on whether your claim is a matter for the state or the federal government. Attorney Elizabeth D. Tate is well-versed in both Arizona’s laws and those at the level of the federal courts. She can properly advise you and help you understand the resulting actions from each choice.
3. Decide Whether Your Claim Is Best Handled Via A Private Lawsuit
Civil rights violations typically fall into this category. You will also need to choose whether a state or federal law applies, in which case an attorney should be retained to help you make that decision and prove your case.
There are time limits for filing discrimination cases so it is especially important to not hesitate in contacting a lawyer to assist you.
