Discrimination Lawyer in Arizona


Thunderbird Law Group fights for victims of discriminatory policies and practices. No one should be treated differently, or subjected to different terms and conditions of employment, because of the color of their skin, whom they love, or what they believe. Regardless of your gender or physical abilities, you deserve to work in an environment free from unlawful discrimination and harassment.

Unfortunately, despite all the progress we have made since abolition of slavery, women’s suffrage, and the passage of civil rights laws, illegal discrimination still occurs with surprising frequency in this day and age, and when it does, we are ready to stand with those victimized by it.
