Aggressively Fighting for the Rights of Our Clients
New York City, is a vibrant and diverse metropolis where people from all walks of life converge in pursuit of the American dream. It's a city that prides itself on inclusivity and the celebration of differences. However, beneath the dazzling skyscrapers and bustling streets, an insidious issue lingers - race discrimination.
Race discrimination is an unfortunate reality that persists in various facets of daily life in New York. From employment discrimination to housing disparities, unequal access to quality education, and biased law enforcement practices, it affects individuals from marginalized racial backgrounds in profound ways. While progress has been made in recent years, the struggle against racial discrimination is far from over.
In the realm of housing, New York law prohibits discrimination based on race, including discriminatory practices in renting, selling, and financing housing. The Fair Housing Act and the NYSHRL mandate that individuals have the right to live in a housing environment free from racial discrimination. Mark David Shirian P.C. can assist clients in filing complaints with the New York City Commission on Human Rights or pursuing legal action against discriminatory landlords or property managers.
Education is often seen as the great equalizer, but racial disparities persist in New York's schools. Minority students are disproportionately affected by underfunded schools, unequal access to advanced coursework, and harsh disciplinary practices. Mark David Shirian P.C. can engage in advocacy to promote equitable funding for schools and provide legal representation to families seeking to challenge discriminatory practices within the education system.

Race discrimination is a persistent issue in New York City that affects people's lives in various ways.
