California Civil Rights Attorneys
Oakland / San Francisco / Bay Area
Haddad & Sherwin LLP represents people in cases involving Wrongful Death and Serious Injury, Police and Jail Misconduct, Police Shootings and Killings, Jail Suicide and Jail Death, and Restraint/Compression/Positional Asphyxia by Police.
We also represent other attorneys and clients in civil rights appeals and statutory attorney fee claims.
Recent publicized incidents of police abuse and misconduct unfortunately have led many lawyers to claim they can handle such cases. Some will even contact victims directly to solicit their services, in violation of ethical rules. However civil rights cases involving law enforcement can be highly complicated. Lawyers who are not experienced experts in this work will often lose their clients’ cases to the many special law enforcement defenses and trapdoors that await.
During the COVID-19 restrictions, Haddad & Sherwin LLP continues to Represent People Fighting For Justice. Our office staffing is temporarily limited, but the rest of us are working remotely. We are working hard on our current cases, and we are still accepting new cases. If you would like a free consultation of your serious injury or wrongful death case, please call our office or send an email inquiry. We can also set up video-conference meetings or in-person meetings with appropriate precautions and physical distancing if necessary.
Justice does not rest. Please be safe and well.

Haddad & Sherwin LLP launch new social justice website, Walls of Justice
After George Floyd’s gruesome murder by Minneapolis police officers in May 2020, uprisings in Oakland resulted in extensive damage to local office buildings and businesses. All over Oakland, windows and doors were then covered with wooden boards. Especially during the pandemic, it looked as though the entire city were deserted. Then street artists began painting beautiful murals on these boards, demanding justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and the many other victims of police violence. These artists’ eloquent and powerful demands for reform inspired Julia Sherwin to launch Walls of Justice, an online community and forum to showcase this important art. Please visit Walls of Justice and send us photos of inspiring Walls of Justice near you, to add to this community.
The partners at Haddad & Sherwin LLP are experienced Civil Rights – Trial Lawyers, and national leaders among civil rights attorneys.
Highly rated by their peers, Haddad & Sherwin LLP has won numerous large jury verdicts and settlements for their seriously injured clients. Take a look at their Results, Reforms, and Attorney Profiles on this website.
