A boutique civil rights firm designed to
protect constitutional rights.
Edmonds Law Office of Civil Rights was envisioned over 20 years ago by a young girl dedicated to understanding institutional social inequities. Her exposure to the criminal injustice system, the school-to-prison pipeline, and prison industrial complex led her to discover the ways in which law played a role. This firm is the manifestation of her vision to provide accessible representation for equitable results.
Our office embraces a culture of equity, which recognizes that more resources (financial, social, emotional, mental, spiritual, and legal) are necessary to enable transformative growth for the individual and community. Our firm names and acknowledges institutional racism, its impact on generational wealth and perpetual poverty (via home ownership, educational opportunity, discriminatory pay, and decreased opportunities), particularly in communities of color.
Our Practice Areas
We represent plaintiffs (individuals bringing a case) in civil rights actions. Civil Rights includes many different types of cases, many of which derive from constitutional rights.
Our firm represents children with disabilities under the IDEA, ADA, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. We also represent children who have been discriminated against based on their membership in a protected class (Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964).
Our firm represents employees who have experienced discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin.
