Our Vision


Our firm was established to provide zealous legal advocacy to the communities who need it most.  We seek to influence meaningful social change by using the law as a means to do so.  Ultimately, we desire the following:

  1. Constitutional protections that are respected and enforced without discriminatory application.
     

  2. Educational opportunities that provide nuanced plans for students with special needs, the elimination of discriminatory punishment and a militarized school environment.
     

  3. Right to Work. Employment in a place that pays equal pay for equal work, without discriminatory influence.
     

  4. Safe, Affordable Non-Discriminatory Housing for tenants and homeowners. 

 

Value 01. Access

Accessibility via Flexible Hours. Edmonds Law Office of Civil Rights values providing meaningful access to people with different work and family schedules.  To that end, Edmonds Law Office has non-standard work hours on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturdays.  Legal services are also available outside the posted business hours by appointment.

 

Accessibility via plain language.  Instead of legalese, our firm uses plain language to explain strategy, legal documents, and the scope of our representation.

 

Accessibility via Billing. Our firm uses new age billing methods to include: flat rate services, sliding scale hourly services, contingency-based fee agreements, and combination billing.

Value 02. Equity

Our firm uses legal advocacy to achieve equitable outcomes. Edmonds Law Office of Civil Rights acknowledges that the law has had an instrumental and primary role in creating disenfranchisement. 

At the same time, the law has been used to correct oppressive laws and expand rights.  We value holistic, intersectional lawyering to achieve profound, equitable outcomes.

 

Value 03. Client-centered, trauma informed lawyering

Ms. Edmonds obtained her Juris Doctorate from UCLA School of Law, where she obtained a specialization in Critical Race Theory.  Critical Race Theory is the study of race, law, and power dynamics.

Our firm prides itself on building relationships with clients based in transparency and compassion.  Our firm has extensive experience and training working with clients experiencing trauma.  We adjust our interviewing, investigation, and case strategy accordingly.

 

Edmonds Law Office wants to ensure that our firm is a good fit for you.  To this end, we thoroughly explain our approach, our analysis of your case, client expectations, and what you can expect from us.
