Discrimination & Harassment

We are proven leaders and experts in fighting illegal discrimination and harassment in the workplace, schools, housing, government, stores and other public accommodations. Our lawyers have won some of the most important anti-discrimination and anti-harassment cases in Maine’s history and we have also won big victories through improving state and federal laws prohibiting discrimination and harassment that unfairly keep people from reaching their dreams and full potential.

We frequently teach other lawyers about the many federal, state, and local laws, such as the Maine Human Rights Act, Section 1983, and Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964. We are also highly experienced in prosecuting claims in  the federal and state courts and agencies, such as the Maine Human Rights Commission and federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
