California Civil Rights Laws

Identifying Civil Rights Violations in California

If law enforcement (local, State or federal agencies) have abused their power and you have been arrested without probable cause; excessive force was applied during your arrest or you have been harassed; intimidated or coerced to provide testimony without being admonished the “Miranda warning”; your civil rights have been violated.

The United States’ Constitution and the California Constitution protect your rights, even if you are not an American citizen or a permanent resident. The majority of these cases are against local police, the counties’ Sheriff’s Departments, the State police (in California is the California Highway Patrol) or federal authorities like the FBI, ATF, Customs or the Border Patrol.

What to Expect

What is the process from violation to settlement?

Once our civil rights attorneys have carefully reviewed your case and you have selected our team as your legal representatives, we will first assess whether or not medical treatment is required for any injuries sustained as a result of the civil rights violation. If you were injured during an encounter with law enforcement, an employer, or any other entity that caused you discriminatory harm, we will connect you to the most qualified medical specialist and assign you to a “medical concierge.” This special member of our team will be responsible for helping you to set doctors’ appointments, guiding you through your treatment plan, and making recommendations for your injuries even if you do not have health insurance.

Our team will advance any and all costs and you will not pay the attorney’s fees until your case is settled.
