I want to know could anybody help me find a good Lawyer in Raleigh NC? I'm building a lawsuit case against Belks. Do anybody have someone in mind that is willing to work and maybe take on a discrimination case?

a lot of attorneys specialize. pick up the ol' handy yellow pages. i'm assuming this is employment discrimination? also, if you haven't, look here for some useful information: http://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/index.cfm

also know that if this is employment discrimination, you have to go through the EEOC first before you can file an actual "law suit." that website above is really helpful in doing so. knowing that might save you on the front end from attorney's fees.

I don't think even Saul could win this case.

You don't have to hire a local attorney.

I hired a friend of mine that lives about 1.5 hrs from me. We correspond through email, text and snail mail. It has been a great experience so far. If you want the name of the law firm PM me.

hmmm, do you care to elaborate? law suit against belk, as in the department store? if it doesn't concern employment discrimination, i'm not sure what else you could be suing for. there are federal laws that control housing/rental practices, but outside of those few laws that apply to private conduct, discrimination is pretty much a-ok so long as it's not the government doing it.

I was falsely accused of stealing items out of Belks. I was basically the only black guy in the section and some clothes got missing and manager assumed it was me. I don't know why, but I believe it was a sterotype kind of thing. So I didn't buy anything because I didn't really see anything I liked, so I left out the store and went and sat in the truck with my father. 5mins later a police officer, store manager, and mall cop asked to search my father truck. They didn't find anything. I was also asked to pull my clothes off outside the mall in the public. The most embarrassing thing ever.

the quick and dirty huddle answer is that you're just going to have to swallow your pride. there really isn't anything you can do. they didn't stop you from coming in b/c you're black. they didn't tell you to leave b/c you're black. a manager's suspicion that it was you isn't much to go off of. i would still call an attorney, though. be very specific, though. like were the mall cops, or actually uniformed police officers of wake county? hate to say it, but you might have been a victim of society's prejudice. don't let me discourage you, though. i'm just trying to tell you what you should expect. tell your story to an attorney, and see what he or she says. g'luck.
