California LGBT Immigrant Rights Lawyer

We help put the ‘fair’ back in ‘fair fight.’

Many immigrants come to the U.S., and San Francisco in particular, because they have been the victims of oppression, discrimination, and violence in their home countries, often because of their status as an LGBT person.

Unfortunately, immigrants often find themselves victims of the same discrimination and abuse here, both because of their LGBT status and because of their immigration status, race, ethnicity, or religion. Immigrants often face discrimination in housing and employment.

Know Your Rights!

As an LGBT person and an immigrant, it is extremely important to know your rights under the U.S. legal system. U.S. employment law protects every worker. The California Fair Employment & Housing Act (FEHA) protects everyone who legally resides in this country.

  • Were you called offensive names or racial slurs?
  • Were you hit, pinched, kicked or assaulted at work?
  • Were you given harder job duties than other people doing your same job?
  • Were you paid less than others doing the same job?
  • Did your employer make sexual comments, touch you or demand you have sex with him or her?

If you have been discriminated against in hiring, working conditions or pay, or been harassed or assaulted on the job because of your race or country of origin, you need legal help. Contact a California LGBT immigrant rights lawyer at The Dolan Law Firm in San Francisco.

San Francisco Workplace Discrimination Attorney

For more than a decade, attorney Chris Dolan has been fighting for LGBT employee’s rights in workplace discrimination and harassment cases. He has been chosen as a “Northern California Super Lawyer” by SuperLawyer magazine for five consecutive years.

Our firm has a track record of results in employment discrimination cases in East Bay, Oakland, San Francisco, and throughout the East Bay Area. We’ve obtained some of the largest verdicts and settlements on record in California, including the largest reported verdict in California, $61 million in a race and national origin harassment and discrimination case.

Chris Dolan fought a five-year battle against FedEx for two Arab/Lebanese package delivery drivers who were victims of ethnic discrimination and racial harassment. “The company and a terminal manager had created a hostile work environment…. There was testimony at trial that the drivers were taunted by the manager, called “camel jockeys,” “terrorists,” “sand niggers,” and other ethnic slurs.” Attorney Dolan achieved a $60 million verdict against FedEx Ground, and more than $1 million against the manager/supervisor.
