Civil Rights Claims

Tennessee Civil Rights Lawyer Asserts Your Claim

Aggressive Columbia advocate fights for the constitutional protections of clients

The Constitution of the United States places limits on the powers of the government in order to safeguard citizens’ unalienable rights. When local, state or federal authorities overreach, extending their grasp beyond those limits, affected citizens have a claim at law. At Gene Hallworth Attorney at Law, I draw on my extensive experience to bring civil rights claims on behalf of people in the Columbia area and throughout Tennessee. Whether you have been falsely arrested or imprisoned, subjected to racial profiling, faced workplace discrimination or treated with excessive force by the police, I will fight for the remedy under the law you deserve.

Determined civil rights attorney holds the government accountable

At Gene Hallworth Attorney at Law, I represent clients whose civil rights have been violated in a range of areas:

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

When taking your case, you can count on my tenacious advocacy — I know the law and work hard to get results in both state and federal claims. I provide insightful advice and implement successful strategies for every phase of the judicial process: settlement, trial and appeal.

Proven advocate protects 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)
  • Genetic information (The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008)
  • 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)

Discrimination claims can be 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.
