Civil Rights

Brooklyn, New York Civil Rights Lawyer

Enforcing your constitutional protections

The Constitution of the United States places limits on the powers of the government in order to safeguard our citizens’ unalienable rights. When local, state or federal authorities overreach, extending their grasp beyond those limits, affected citizens have a claim at law. Drawing our extensive experience, Geoffrey Schotter prosecutes civil rights violations against the government such as:

  • Interference with free speech or peaceful assembly
  • Interference with religious practices
  • Illegal searches and seizures of property
  • Police brutality
  • False arrest and unlawful imprisonment
  • Voter suppression
  • Unlawful interrogation
  • Unfair trial

I am tenacious — I know the law and work hard to get results. I am licensed to handle state and federal claims. I provide insightful advice and implement successful strategies for every phase of the judicial process: settlement, trial and appeal.

Defending your rights in the private sector

Federal civil rights legislation protects citizens from discrimination in employment based upon a variety of factors. You may have a claim for monetary damages if you have been denied employment, promotion or equal pay for any of the following reasons:

  • Age (ADEA)
  • Disability (ADA)
  • Gender (Title VII, EPA, Lily Ledbetter Act, FLSA)
  • National origin (Title VII)
  • Pregnancy (Title VII, FMLA)
  • Race or ethnicity (Title VII)
  • Religion (Title VII)
  • Workplace retaliation (Title VII, ADEA, ADA, EPA)
  • Sexual harassment (Title VII)
  • Workers’ compensation discrimination and retaliation

Discrimination claims are often difficult to prove. Failure to file a prompt claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) may cost you the right to even have your case heard. If you believe you’ve been the unfair target of discriminatory practices, contact me as soon as possible.
