New York Employment and Civil Rights Lawyers

The Harman Firm understands that employment and civil rights violations can have an overwhelming, even devastating impact on people’s personal and professional lives. 

When disputes arise in employment, we aim to build bridges between employees and employers. When police officers abuse civilianswhether through police misconduct, police abuse, false imprisonment, racial profiling, or malicious prosecutionwe fight for just compensation.  If a resolution is not possible, we guide our clients through the financial and emotional challenges of a legal battle with zealous advocacy, legal expertise, and sound advice.  Our New York employment and civil rights lawyers offer the time, talent, and support needed when confronting any situation.

Few are prepared for the trauma caused by police misconduct, or sexual harassment or discrimination based on protected characteristics such as race, age, gender, pregnancy, disability, or sexual orientation. The Harman Firm encourages victims to address that trauma, come forward with their claims, and consult with an attorney regarding their legal options. We are prepared to analyze and resolve the challenges caused by illegal conduct.
