Civil Rights Violations in CA

Effective Representation from Skilled Attorneys

It is normal to expect our police officers to protect us from harm, but sometimes they are the ones we need to be protected from. At The Cardoza Law Offices in Walnut Creek, California, our San Francisco Bay Area civil rights attorneys are dedicated to preserving the rights of all clients from anyone who would violate those civil rights.

Section 1983 Litigation Defense

"Section 1983" is a statute that protects U.S. citizens from being deprived of their federal constitutional rights.

These include violations of rights described in the:

  • First Amendment (freedom of speech)
  • Fourth Amendment (use of force or illegal search and seizure)
  • Eighth Amendment (cruel and unusual punishment)
  • Fourteenth Amendment (violations of due process and equal protection)

Since our law firm was founded, our California civil rights lawyers have represented many clients with civil rights violations claims, such as:

  • False arrests
  • Police brutality
  • Police misconduct
  • Positional asphyxia
  • Unlawful use of tasers
  • Police use of excessive force
