Civil Rights Violations Representation
Customized Legal Advocacy for Clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey
Pennsylvania and New Jersey individuals who have experienced civil rights violations in the context of education, workplace discrimination, or governmental action are encouraged to contact the law offices of Mark J. Hill & Associates in either Moorestown or Philadelphia.
Our civil rights lawyers advocate on behalf of students in support of their rights to freedom from discrimination at school on the basis of age, sex, race, or disability. If a student’s special education IEP (individualized educational plan) is inappropriate, our firm’s advocacy skills are a valuable recourse. If a child has suffered harm because a school district allowed one student to assault another, our attorneys offer experienced counsel and representation. We also represent claimants in higher education law claims.
We are called upon in matters of student discipline such as suspension or expulsion from private or public schools at the elementary, secondary, and college level. We have counseled foreign students who have believe they have wrongfully been denied university degrees because of their nationality.
Our advocacy extends to areas including Title 7 (VII) discrimination claims (on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, or religion) as well as Section 1983 civil rights claims (regarding equal access to a free and appropriate public education or governmental or commercial interference with civil liberties).
To schedule a consultation regarding a potential civil rights claim, contact Mark J. Hill & Associates in Moorestown or Philadelphia online or by phone at 215-564-1100. A civil rights lawyer will be happy to speak with you.
