What Should You Do If You Believe
Rights Have Been Violated?
Seek Legal Advice
Litigating civil rights cases requires an in-depth knowledge of both federal and state discrimination laws as well as the various statute of limitations and pre-conditions to filing suit. It is a complex process that requires the help of an experienced civil rights attorney. At Sykes & Associates, we provide a free consultation to answer your questions and evaluate your claim.
Document the Discrimination
In some cases, the wrongful action or discrimination is abundantly clear. However in most of these cases, the wrongful action or discrimination is subtle, making it difficult to prove. As best as you can, document the discriminatory acts and maintain a paper trail.
Report the Discrimination
Report the discrimination to make an official record.
Pursue Legal Action
If it is determined that you have a viable case, commence legal action promptly, before the statute of limitation expires. At Sykes & Associates, a civil rights lawyer will determine whether you have a viable claim and if so, begin the formallitigation process.
