We Will Stand Up for Your Civil Rights

The right to work; the right to live where you want; the right to be treated equally under the law without regard to your race, religion, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation: These valuable rights are fundamental to a free society, but what if they are violated?

Civil rights cases are the most important cases there are — without them there would be no way to fight discrimination, prejudice and injustice. An experienced civil rights attorney will stand up for your rights. At Walston Cross, our lawyers are committed to vindicating the rights of the people. The work we and other civil rights attorneys do helps not only our individual clients, but for all the people who are treated more fairly as a result of the legal outcome.

If you are a victim of discrimination, we can answer your questions and help you take legal action. Contact us today online or by phone at 415-956-9200 for a free initial consultation. We serve clients in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout the state of California.

Policing the Police

Police perform a valuable function in our lives, but they wield considerable power, and that power can be abused. If you feel that you have been the victim of police misconduct, we can answer your questions and help you explore your legal options.
