Aggressive Employment Law Attorney in New Mexico
Fighting LGBT Discrimination in the Workplace
Though laws have been in place in New Mexico for many years prohibiting discrimination in employment based on sexual orientation or gender identity, it’s still fairly commonplace in the state. If you have been denied employment, terminated, given less desirable work assignments or subjected to other unfavorable treatment at work because you are gay, bi or transgender, you have a right to seek relief. Let Buchanan Law protect your rights.
At Buchanan Law, we have aggressively advocated for victims of workplace discrimination for more than two decades. Though our primary offices are in Albuquerque, we will meet with you in person anywhere in the state of New Mexico. Though attorney Deena Buchanan has handled EEOC and employment law disputes across the country, we focus our practice on controversies that arise in New Mexico. We have an intimate knowledge and understanding of the laws and the courts in New Mexico, as well as the ways that New Mexico judges handle discrimination actions.
Deena is a highly experienced trial attorney renowned for her strong advocacy, meticulous preparation and composure in any situation. She’s successfully served as lead counsel in a number of high-profile, high-stakes disputes. She knows from experience that every discrimination claim is different and she’ll take the time to get to know you and learn exactly what happened to you, so that she can customize her efforts to get the outcome you want.
