PRACTICE AREAS

CIVIL RIGHTS LITIGATION

In the United States of America, No person or entity is above the law, regardless of station or position. Yet often the justice system seems to work differently depending on who you are and what you have. At Chavez-Freed, we are tireless pursuers of full and complete justice in the area of civil rights, no matter one’s circumstances.
Attorney Leticia Chavez-Freed has instituted an advocacy program dedicated to people and families who will be or are currently experiencing incarceration and all of its consequences. What can you do when your son, daughter or partner is headed to prison? The very mission of this program is to help imprisoned people get through an incarceration with as much dignity intact so they and their families may look to the future.
Criminal prosecutions are daunting. When you are charged with a crime, you face the crushing force of the prosecution, the police, and all the power and resources of the state. It can feel like it is you against the world. That is why you need a skilled, tireless, and fearless lawyer to fight for you.

In view of the Constitution, in the eye of the law, there is in this country no superior, dominant, ruling class of citizens. There is no caste here.

The humblest is the peer of the most powerful.
