Virginia Civil Rights Attorneys

Award-Winning Attorneys Fighting to Protect Your Rights

Not all “injuries” come from car crashes. It can be equally traumatizing for a person’s rights to be violated by organizations or groups that are supposed to protect them. Every private and public organization is obligated to respect and uphold the rights of each individual. If a person or organization has violated your legal rights, you have another legal right at your disposal—you can call a Virginia civil rights attorney at Breit Cantor Grana Buckner to help hold your wrongdoer accountable.

The lawyers at Breit Cantor Grana Buckner have a wealth of experience in prosecuting actions that violate the constitutional and statutory rights of Virginia citizens. Whether it be as a result of problems in the workplace, in commerce, or through encounters with governmental officials, the attorneys at our firm are ready to aggressively pursue every avenue to secure justice for our clients whose civil rights have been violated.

Our award-winning lawyers handle cases involving:

  • Employment discrimination
  • Race, religion, and gender discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Fair housing cases
  • Government misconduct
