Virginia Personal Injury Attorneys that Support Diversity, Equality and Civil Rights | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

The U.S. Constitution provides that the citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states, and the 14th amendment declares that “no state” shall abridge those privileges, nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process. Our lawyers take these constitutional freedoms seriously, and we often remind juries of how a negligent person or company may have stifled our client’s liberty and essentially taken our client’s property without compensation. Our Constitution protects every person from discrimination due to race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual preference or orientation. This means every person is entitled to the equal protection of our laws, and all our civil rights.  We don’t lose sight of the fact that personal injury actions are enforcing civil rights in courts. Diversity means committing our law firm to seeking out diverse opinions, ethnically diverse expert witnesses and physicians, and to being mindful of the advantages of diversity in all aspects of our legal representation of clients. After all, our clients come from every walk of life, whether wealthy or not wealthy, and it is our job to help clients who often do not have the means to battle a big company.   We fight for our clients, from every walk of life, every day.
