Practice Areas

While we are five separate, small law firms, we join forces to bring challenges to State power and other forms of repression, on an individual, systemic, and community level.

Our practice areas include workers’ rights and employment litigation; police misconduct; deportation defense and immigration, including asylum, U-Visas, deferred action and family petitions; criminal defense including post-conviction relief: community business transactions for cooperatives and other small businesses; housing rights including affirmative tenants’ rights litigation on housing conditions and discrimination; family law, including LGBTQIA and other traditional and nontraditional families; personal injury including bike and car accidents; and bankruptcy.

We seek to provide compassionate and relevant legal representation to members of marginalized community groups, including undocumented residents of Oakland, low-income workers, people in detention and custody, and survivors of State violence.
