Equality in America has come a long way. But, that doesn’t mean that inequality has been eradicated.
As a minority, you still face discrimination or even violence. While you might feel like no one is on your side, this is not the case. You have rights that protect you from this discrimination. You also have Ruane Attorneys on your side, a team of people who want to help you get justice.
Over our years practicing law, we have seen how the justice system can take advantage of minorities, the disabled, and those without a voice - often because they lack the financial backing of their opponents. We believe that every person who has suffered an injustice has the right to compensation. While this won’t make up for your hardships, it can give you some peace of mind. In addition, it can set a positive precedent for future cases like yours.

Many people that come to us think that their rights have been violated, but they are not sure. If you think that your rights have been violated, you should contact us as soon as possible. A lawyer can go through your situation and help you determine if you have a case.
How Do You Know If You Have a Case?
In order to have a case, you have to prove that a protected right was violated. People discriminate against others for various reasons, but not all of these discriminatory actions are unlawful.
