Have You Been Discriminated Against Because of Your Race?

If you have been discriminated against because of your race, it is important to talk to a Chicago attorney who can help you understand and decide the merits of your case. Discrimination is a serious offense and a skilled attorney can help.

Race Discrimination Protection Under the Law

Race Discrimination occurs when individuals are treated unfavorably because their physical characteristics demonstrate that they look like another race. Federal Law forbids employers from terminating or engaging, or otherwise treating differently an employee because of their race. The law even protects people from discrimination based upon their relationship with a person from a different race.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances – such as being charged with a crime – where you should always seek experienced legal help.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney’s track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
