Civil Rights

Haddad & Sherwin specializes in California civil rights claims. A civil rights claim generally arises when the government or its officials violate a person's Constitutional or statutory rights. These rights can include freedom from wrongful seizure or excessive force by law enforcement officers, "police brutality", or the right to freedom of speech without government retaliation. They can also include freedom from racial discrimination, discrimination against women, sex discrimination in the workplace, and any discrimination in employment or public services and accommodations, based on protected criteria such as race, national origin, gender, religion, age, or sexual orientation.
