Texas Discrimination Based on Race, Color, Religion, Sex, or National Origin Lawyer
Have you faced discrimination in the workplace based on your race, color, religion, sex, or national origin? If so, you have the right to pursue a claim against the employer who has mistreated you.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 guarantees you the right to be treated the same as all other people, regardless of specific protected personal characteristics. When your employer denies you a promotion, harasses you, fires you, or otherwise negatively affects your ability to work because you are part of a protected class, they are breaking the law.
To hold them accountable for their behavior, however, you will need to work with a Texas discrimination lawyer who knows how to prove your case. Leichter Law Firm PC are specialists in the field of labor and employment law. We have been able to successfully take on some of the biggest businesses in Texas, and we can provide you with that same successful combination of experience and legal skill.
If you or someone you know has experienced discrimination based on their race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, bring your case to Leichter Law Firm PC, where we know how to get justice and compensation for those whose rights have been violated.

Why You Need a Lawyer for Your Discrimination Case
Discrimination is unfortunately common in workplaces across Texas, but it is also incredibly hard to prove. While you may face discrimination based on your protected class characteristics every day, that discrimination may not always come with clear, undeniable evidence.
To build a case that has the potential to hold the right people responsible for their discriminatory actions, you will need the help of an experienced lawyer. Your lawyer can help you gather the necessary evidence to prove discrimination occurred, and then use that evidence to create a solid case.
Doing all this on your own can be incredibly difficult. You likely do not have access to the same kinds of evidence as your lawyer, and you certainly will not have the experience or legal knowledge to develop your case properly. If you want justice and fair compensation for your discrimination claim, it is always best to get a lawyer as soon as possible.
Leichter Law Firm PC Brings Experience and Compassion to Your Case
Discrimination can happen in any industry, in any work situation, and at any time. Many times, the business that allows discrimination to take place is large, powerful, and successful enough to afford aggressive lawyers to fight any claims that come forward. To overcome the legal team your employer assembles to dismiss your discrimination claims, you will need to work with a lawyer that has experience fighting big Texas businesses and knows everything about this area of the law.
Leichter Law Firm PC has been able to successfully take on businesses of all sizes throughout Texas. From retail stores and restaurants to oil fields and armored cars, we know what it takes to get justice and compensation from a discriminatory employer like yours.
At the same, unlike most lawyers, we are board certified specialists in Labor and Employment Law. That gives us a far greater understanding of what your case requires. It also allows us to fight back harder against anyone disputing your claim.
Whether you work for a small mom & pop store or a Fortune 500 company, we have the skill to gather the best evidence and present the best arguments so that you have the best chance of success against those who have mistreated you.
Behavior That Counts As Discrimination
To successfully prove your case, we will most likely need to show two things:
- You are a member of a protected class
- You suffered an adverse employment action
Not every adverse effect in a workplace is due to discrimination. For us to successfully pursue a claim of discrimination based on your race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, we will need to connect your protected class status to one of the following events:
- You were fired
- You were not promoted
- You were denied a rightfully earned pay raise or bonus
- You were demoted
- Your income was reduced
- Your hours were cut
- You were transferred to an objectively worse position
- You did not receive training
- You did not receive benefits
- You were not provided reasonable accommodations when legally required
- You were not hired
If you suffered from any of these adverse employment actions and you believe it is related to your protected class status, bring your case to Leichter Law Firm PC immediately.
