Disability Discrimination

Proven New Mexico Workplace Discrimination Attorney

Wrongful or Disparate Treatment based on a Disability

Under both state and federal law, employers in New Mexico may not discriminate against workers based on a physical or mental disability. The Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as the New Mexico Human Rights Act, prohibit employment decisions affecting hiring, pay, promotion, work assignments, benefits, termination and other job-related matters based on an employee’s physical disability. If you have been subjected to improper treatment in the workplace because of any mental or physical handicap, we can help.

At Buchanan Law, we have protected the rights of employees in discrimination claims for more than 20 years. Our principal offices are in Albuquerque, but we’ll meet with you in person anywhere in the state. Because of our longstanding presence in the Land of Enchantment, we have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the laws and the courts in New Mexico, as well as the ways judges handle employment discrimination claims. Deena has extensive courtroom experience, serving as lead counsel on many complex and high-stakes cases. She’s well-respected by clients, colleagues and judges for her ability to stay calm and collected in any situation.

At Buchanan Law, we approach every case from a unique perspective, taking the time to learn exactly what happened and what you want, so that we can tailor our representation to get the outcome you want.
