At Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. our housing discrimination team fights against all types of real estate discrimination both for clients being discriminated against and for those who have been wrongfully accused of discrimination. As reflected in many published and unpublished decisions in front of New York state courts including State Supreme, Housing, Civil, and Federal courts, our team has and always will voraciously fight for our clients.
As the melting pot of the world, New York City is full of diversity. Most residents see our city’s diversity as positive, but there are still some who discriminate. Especially in real estate, we see many discrimination cases against potential tenants, board members, purchasers, and sellers. The Fair Housing Act, general civil rights laws, and the expanded definitions of harassment created by the updated landlord-tenant laws in 2017 make it illegal for anyone to discriminate against another in the sale, rental, financing, or general maintenance of an accommodation based on race, nationality, creed, religion, ethnicity, sex, and family status among a variety of other characteristics and traits. We understand that potential buyers and renters are entitled to purchase, rent, or finance the home they can afford without being subject to any form of discrimination.
Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. is proud to represent or defend the underdog and litigate against claims of discrimination. We have overcome tremendous odds in court for those who feel they have been discriminated against based solely on their personal traits. We fight equally hard against cases of wrongful accusation as well.
No matter the case, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. will stand up for justice and fight for the rights of our clients. In exposing racism, sexism, ageism and all other forms of discrimination, we work passionately and fervently to protect our clients who have been discriminated against just as we will protect against false claims of discrimination.
