Civil Rights

Chattanooga, Tennessee, Area Civil Rights Attorney

Tennessee Employment Discrimination Lawyer

All U.S. citizens are protected by laws regarding our civil rights. Obtaining and protecting these rights have been an ongoing struggle, resulting in some of the most renowned legal cases in our nation’s history.

If you have been deprived of your rights or discriminated against in a way that you feel has kept you from enjoying privileges granted to others, you should consult an attorney about your legal options.

Attorney William J. Brown has long had a reputation for standing up and speaking up for the civil rights of individuals. He has taken these principles all the way to argument before the U.S. Supreme Court, representing physically challenged individuals in a lawsuit against the state of Tennessee. In 2004, the high court ruled in our clients’ favor and issued an opinion that compelled states to comply with the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
