The dedication of the Rio Grande Attorneys at Law P.C. is to right the wrongs perpetrated on innocent New Mexicans extends to pursuing action against government agencies, employers, and retail establishments for civil rights violations involving discrimination and harassment, and abuses of power. These important cases not only seek to compensate individuals for the harm done to them, but to change public policy and prevent similar abuses from happening to others.
Abuses of Power
The government or other entities may act inappropriately in regard to an individual’s First Amendment rights to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to peaceful assembly, and others. While the government may lawfully regulate speech and conduct in some respects, some laws and ordinances may be unconstitutional on their face, while others may be applied in such a way as to violate individual or group rights.
Harassment and Discrimination
Civil rights violations are not limited to government actors. Local, state and federal laws and constitutions protect individual rights in the areas of employment, fair housing, public accommodations such as schools, hotels and restaurants, admission to educational institutions, and other areas. These laws protect an individual from discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origina, religion, sex (gender), age, disability, sexual orientation, sexual identity, and other factors.

Amelia P. Nelson, Esq.
After years of hard work and dedication to a job, it is devastating to be treated unfairly, involuntary separate or fired from employment. In addition to the immediate financial pressures, such a major change comes with emotional concerns.

However, when you have been the victim of discrimination or wrongful termination, you can no longer rely on your employer for security.
