Respected Civil Rights & Sexual Harassment Lawyer in Birmingham, AL

Sexual Harassment Lawyer Birmingham, AL

Helping you understand your protections under the law

As Americans, we have basic rights and freedoms, and other parties are not allowed to infringe upon those rights through discrimination. But when an employer, coworker or anyone else engages in activities such as harassment and favoritism based on physical attributes, it may be time to file a claim against that person or entity. Stephen A. Strickland, Attorney at Law has more than two decades of experience in civil rights law. He serves as your trusted advocate as you seek what’s right and fair.

Assisting you with your employment law needs

Employers cannot discriminate against you based on your age, race, religion, sexual orientation or disability during the hiring process, while you work for that organization or if your employer decides to terminate you. We can help with a variety of employment law issues, including discrimination, harassment and wage claims.

Representing victims of sexual harassment

Unwanted sexual advances or comments can make for a hostile work environment, something that no individual should have to endure. If you believe your supervisor or coworkers are engaging in inappropriate behavior that’s affecting your ability to do your job, speak with a sexual harassment attorney right away.

Fighting the use of excessive force

We entrust police officers with the duty of keeping our communities safe. However, between 2007 and 2012, the Birmingham Police Department investigated an average of 40 complaints of excessive force by police, also known as 203 complaints. Police officers are permitted to only use the amount of force necessary to control an incident, make an arrest, or protect themselves or others from harm or death, so if you have been the victim of police brutality, do not remain silent. Get a strong advocate on your side to protect your rights.

Jail suicides are often preventable

While the number of annual suicides across the country continues to climb, the rate of suicides in jails is estimated to be several times greater than that in the general population. Jail is not a pleasant place, and when inadequate care and attention by jailers and crowded, unsuitable conditions violate civil rights, inmates may be pushed to the brink. If you believe your loved one’s suicide could have been prevented, we can build a case to prove it and hold those responsible for his or her untimely death accountable.

There’s no excuse for denial or delay of medical care to inmates

Regardless of the reason for a person’s imprisonment, prison officials are obligated under the Eighth Amendment to provide inmates with adequate medical care. Unfortunately, these obligations are not always met. Inadequate medical care may include:

Denials or delays to access to medical personnel

Denial of access to an appropriately qualified medical professional

Failure to carry out medical orders If your or a loved one’s medical needs have gone ignored while in prison, let us help you explore your recourse.
