San Francisco Discrimination Attorney

At the Law Offices of Alan F. Cohen, we understand the profound impact that workplace discrimination can have on your career, your financial stability, and your personal well-being. It is our mission to help you navigate these challenging legal situations with confidence and assertiveness. 

With over 25 years of experience, our San Francisco discrimination attorney has the knowledge and tenacity needed to take on even the largest employers, and we work diligently to protect employees who have been victims of unlawful discrimination at work.

Protecting Your Rights in the Workplace

Discrimination in the workplace can be subtle yet devastating, often causing significant emotional distress and financial hardship. It can take many forms, from unfair treatment based on protected characteristics such as age, race, religion, gender identity, disability, or sexual orientation to retaliation for asserting your rights. Whether it’s during the hiring process, in determining promotions, or in cases of wrongful termination, we are here to fight for justice on your behalf.

How Can a San Francisco Discrimination Attorney Assist You?

Our experienced legal team is dedicated to providing strategic advocacy and personalized attention to each case. We can help in several ways:

Determining the Legality of Your Employer’s Actions: Not all unfair treatment is illegal. We can help you understand the difference and identify if your employer’s actions violate state or federal discrimination laws.

Gathering Evidence: Documenting discrimination can be challenging. Employers are rarely bold enough to admit that race, gender, or another protected characteristic was the primary motivation for an adverse action. However, our team has helped many clients overcome this challenge. We guide you through the process, helping you gather crucial evidence to support your case, from emails and performance reviews to witness testimonies.

Choosing the Best Course of Action: You may have several options for how to address your situation, from filing a formal complaint with a state agency to proceeding straight to a lawsuit. We’ll advise you on the most effective legal strategy for your specific situation.

Achieving Justice: Potential Outcomes of a Successful Claim

When employers are found liable for discrimination, they can face serious penalties. A successful claim could result in compensation for lost wages and benefits, emotional distress, legal expenses, and even punitive damages. In some cases, it could lead to reinstatement to your prior position. Justice for our client is always the main goal, but our work is also intended to create safer, more equitable workplaces for all employees by holding employers accountable for unlawful actions.
