Civil Rights

Although most of our clients arrive from the Southern California area, Semnar & Hartman, LLP handles Civil Rights claims throughout the State of California, including in both State and Federal Courts. We are fully committed to prosecuting law enforcement agencies and officers who overstep the trust that has been provided to them, while ensuring that the Constitutional Rights afforded to all of us to remain free from excessive force, unlawful arrest/detention, and illegal search remain secure. Before engaging in litigation, we aggressively, yet thoroughly, investigate each case in order to determine the various levels of cover-up involved. We seek corroborating evidence and identify areas that require further investigation beyond our preliminary evaluation. Once we have determined the relevant facts, the violations to pursue, and the bad actors involved, we seek justice on behalf of our client and seek to hold each and every bad actor involved responsible for violating our client’s rights.
