Raleigh, North Carolina Civil Rights Lawyer

Enforcing your constitutional protections

The Constitution of the United States places limits on the powers of the government in order to safeguard our citizens’ unalienable rights. When local, state or federal authorities overreach, extending their grasp beyond those limits, affected citizens have a claim at law. Drawing our extensive experience, Law Office of Gregory Kash prosecutes civil rights violations against the government such as:

  • Interference with free speech or peaceful assembly
  • Interference with religious practices
  • Illegal searches and seizures of property
  • Police brutality
  • False arrest and unlawful imprisonment
  • Voter suppression
  • Unlawful interrogation
  • Unfair trial

I am tenacious — I know the law and work hard to get results. I am licensed to handle state and federal claims. I provide insightful advice and implement successful strategies for every phase of the judicial process: settlement, trial and appeal.

Defending your rights in the private sector

Federal civil rights legislation protects citizens from discrimination in employment based upon a variety of factors. You may have a claim for monetary damages if you have been denied employment, promotion or equal pay for any of the following reasons:

  • Age (ADEA)
  • Disability (ADA)
  • Gender (Title VII, EPA, Lily Ledbetter Act, FLSA)
  • Genetic information (The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008)
  • National origin (Title VII)
  • Pregnancy (Title VII, FMLA)
  • Race or ethnicity (Title VII)
  • Religion (Title VII)
  • Workplace retaliation (Title VII, ADEA, ADA, EPA)
  • Sexual harassment (Title VII)

Discrimination claims are often difficult to prove. Failure to file a prompt claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) may cost you the right to even have your case heard. If you believe you’ve been the unfair target of discriminatory practices, contact me as soon as possible.

Mr. Kash has been involved in both the defense of civil rights claims and in bringing claims for violations of persons’ civil rights. Claims for civil rights violations include so-called “excessive force” claims by people who are injured as a result of state, local and federal government officials. These cases are extremely complex; most civil rights cases go to the appellate courts at least once before it can reach trial. Appellate review of these types of claims consume a vast amount of resources.

In addition to claims for wrongful arrest, wrongful prosecution, excessive force and general abuse by governmental officials, our team also represents individuals who have been deprived their constitutional guarantee of receiving necessary and appropriate medical care for serious medical needs. These types of cases are often referred to as “deliberate indifference” claims and occur when jail staff neglect the medical needs of those incarcerated persons, resulting in serious injuries.

Mr. Kash has pursued civil rights cases in both state and federal court against the United States of America, the State of North Carolina, and numerous local law enforcement agencies and sheriffs’ departments. Claims against these governmental entities are rigorously defended by government-retained defense attorneys and these cases generally take years in litigation before you reach resolution by a settlement or trial.
