- 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 who have claims of civil rights violations, such as:
- False arrests

Having our population protected by law enforcement officials is desirable, as long as the police do not overstep their authority or injure innocent people.
