Miami Wrongful Termination Attorneys
Civil Rights Act • Title VII • Employment Discrimination
With the advent of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, came the need to counterbalance civil rights with equal legal protection against false charges of a violation or discrimination based on race, color, age, sex, national origin, or religion.
At Florida’s Marrero & Wydler, our Miami wrongful termination attorneys and civil rights lawyers are dedicated to providing a solid legal defense to clients who include corporations, public officials, municipal employees, state agencies and employees, universities, retail stores, and police officers. We realize these cases are sensitive.
Some of the typical cases our civil rights lawyers have handled include:
- A University asserting a defense against a professor who believed the school terminated him because of race.
- A human resource supervisor who needs a defense because an employee claims retaliation and whistle blower status.
- A public official seeking representation because a subordinate alleged adverse employment action and first amendment violations before an election.
- Municipalities and law enforcement officers sued for constitutional torts such as, excessive force, false arrest or malicious prosecution.
Employment Law and Civil Rights Violations Need a Capable Defense
At Marrero & Wydler, our approach to representing these clients is to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the facts, check into personnel files and work history, interview relevant witnesses, and determine the motivation of these witnesses. After completing this thorough examination, we will base our strategy on whether or not we believe that summary judgment, mediation or a courtroom trial will achieve the best results for our client.
