Maryland-Washington, D.C., Title VII Attorneys

Title VII, with its ever-shifting legal requirements, is a minefield for employers. The basic statute bans discrimination on the basis of race, sex, color, national origin and religion. It also bans retaliation for making complaints about discriminatory activity. While this seems simple enough, the U.S. Supreme Court is constantly crafting new precedents that alter the legal landscape. Having your business stay on top of these new developments and employing policies and practices to minimize liability is a key to avoiding future costly litigation. At Thatcher Law Firm , through alert client counseling, we can help you to navigate your way through the legal thicket and circumscribe your legal exposure.

Title VII is more than just an anti-discrimination statute. It created an entire administrative process for mediating and investigating employment claims. This process begins with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). It is at the EEOC level where the government initially investigates and attempts to mediate discrimination claims. The choices made during the EEOC process can either severely limit future legal maneuverability or lay the groundwork for the effective resolution of legal claims.

Dedicated Title VII Representation

At Thatcher Law Firm , a Maryland-based employment law firm handling cases throughout the mid-Atlantic region, we are thoroughly familiar with the EEOC process, having handled hundreds of EEOC charges of discrimination on the respondent and complainant sides. Retaining us at the outset of a charge of discrimination will ensure that you maximize the opportunities of the EEOC process to obtain information from the complainant and to develop an effective legal posture for the future defense of a claim of discrimination.

Ultimately, if litigation is necessary, as experienced employment defense claim attorneys, we stand ready to aggressively advance your interests through the state and federal court systems. Our managing member, Linda Hitt Thatcher, is a former president of the Federal Bar Association of Maryland and has been named four times as one of the top attorneys in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area by Washingtonian magazine. Ms. Thatcher leads a team of experienced litigators, including Robert J. Baror, who have won many cases on motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment and at trial, when necessary.
