Pittsburgh Employment Law Attorney

Lawyer for Age Discrimination Claims Hourglass image Employment Law

The law prohibits discrimination in employment, housing, transportation and other aspects of life in the United States. Sadly, people do not always abide by the law, and employees and home-buyers face discrimination based on factors such as their age, gender, race or religion. It is important to fight such discrimination, not only to resolve the immediate problem, but to help prevent this kind of treatment in the future.

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

At my Pittsburgh law firm, the Law Office of Michael J. Lorence, I fight for people whose rights were violated by discriminatory treatment. I am not afraid to take on large corporations in pursuit of justice for my clients. I have helped numerous clients win against major employers in Allegheny County.

Examples of Discriminatory Behavior

My employment law cases have involved:

  • Retaliation against employees who filed complaints or grievances
  • Age discrimination when younger workers were hired or promoted over experienced employees over 40
  • Race, ethnicity or national origin
  • Disability
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender or sex discrimination
  • Harassment or hostile environment due to race or sex

I have handled complex constitutional matters that turned on the constitutional rights to free speech and to petition the government over grievances. Not all employment law attorneys handle cases such as these. I have the knowledge, willingness and determination to do whatever is needed to protect my clients' First Amendment rights.

I take the time to learn my clients' stories fully. I often visit their homes to better understand their situations. For me, each case is personal; know that I will handle your discrimination case as if it were my own.

I was previously an investigator for the City of Pittsburgh Human Relations Commission. This gives me an advantage in employment law matters such as racial discrimination in the workplace. I can evaluate cases quickly and determine the course of action that will best address the problem my client is facing. I fully understand the administrative process before the EEOC, or Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission that is followed to resolve employment discrimination matters.
