Employment & Civil Rights Lawyers in Raleigh
Defending the Rights of Individuals Against Government and Employer Misconduct
At Edwards Kirby, we represent individuals who have been mistreated by their government or their employer. Every American citizen is offered specific rights and protections under the U.S. Constitution. In fact, the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution specifically limit the power of the federal government and set forth the rights of citizens to free speech, due process, freedom from cruel & unusual punishment, and protection from unreasonable search and seizure, to name a few. In addition, specific state and federal laws have been implemented to ensure protection from prejudice, discrimination, retaliation, and harassment in the workplace and beyond.
Our lawyers help hold the government and employers accountable when they deny individuals these rights. We represent individuals who have been victims of police misconduct, prosecutorial abuse or rights violations in jails and prisons. We also stand up for employees who have witnessed fraud by an employer, experienced discrimination or harassment in the workplace, or been retaliated against for speaking out.
Edwards Kirby is committed to safeguarding these important protections for individuals and groups, whether being breached by the government, corporations, or others. These essential rights belong to each American, and should never be abandoned in favor of prejudices or abuses of power. Edwards Kirby is dedicated to defending our rights, from protecting individuals from police misconduct to defending the right of every American to work without fear of sexual harassment.
