Even in a nation that prides itself on its dedication to freedom for all, discrimination remains pervasive. On both subtle and blatant levels, bias can contribute to inequities that individuals face because of their skin color, their gender, their nationality, their physical condition and other factors. The term "civil rights" refers to the rights of individuals to receive equal treatment under the law, which includes freedom from discrimination in employment and other settings. For the most part, civil rights are enforced at the federal level -- most notably the far-reaching protections provided by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But New Jersey and other states typically provide additional civil rights protections within their borders. For instance, it is a violation of New Jersey civil rights laws for employers to discriminate against employees on the basis of one's gender identity or expression.
At Bedi Rindosh, we believe that everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity: from the little girl who can’t get as much attention in the classroom as male students receive, to the gay couple who face rejection when trying to find safe and affordable housing. Our civil rights attorneys see the pain that people suffer because violations of the law are overlooked. We are committed to helping those who have been victimized by discrimination.
In our growingly diverse world, respect for differences continues to lag in many situations. Individuals or groups may find themselves victimized by law enforcement – even placed under arrest or detained unlawfully. Instances of abuse or forced hospitalization of those who suffer with mental illnesses certainly still occur. Newspaper headlines recount sad statistics about students who endure humiliation in our school systems. At the same time, police officers, union workers, school teachers, health care workers and others may find themselves facing unwarranted charges of discrimination for the actions they take in performing their jobs.
At Bedi Rindosh, our civil rights attorneys have the ability to analyze your situation and determine whether an alleged charge of abuse (or victimization) is valid. We can provide the strong and knowledgeable advocacy you need when your own voice isn’t being heard.

However, if your case goes to court, our firm’s civil rights attorneys are masterful litigators known for their formidable presence in trial settings.
