Because Civil Rights are Human Rights.
The United States Constitution guarantees each of us certain basic human rights. It is supposed to prevent police departments from using excessive force, arresting people without probable cause, or detaining people without legal authority. Who holds the government accountable when they ignore Constitution?
WHO WE ARE.
Justice-seeker. Legal strategist. Fighter.
Steve Benedetto was not all of these things when he began his legal career in 2003. It took over a decade of battling in the trenches of the civil justice system — years of seeing horrific injustices — for him to imagine another possibility. A vision of what the legal system could be. And what a law firm could be for its clients.
HEATHER HAMEL ROBLES
Heather Hamel Robles entered the legal field with just about every bona fide title one can accumulate: Berkley grad; Judicial Clerk; Big-Firm Associate. Her diligence and focus led her to one of the pre-eminent law firms in the country. But Heather soon found that the accolades, peer admiration, and six-figure salary weren't enough. Not for a life-long activist hellbent on changing the system.
From the age of 18, Will Knight knew he was going to dedicate his life to changing a justice system whose violence he and his family had personally experienced. Less than a decade after graduating at the top of his law school class, he has already done just that. Moved from big-firm litigator to public defender to political candidate to community organizer and civil rights lawyer, Will has massively impacted the system at every stop along the way. Now he is at The PLF.
Born in Arizona in 2014, The People's Law Firm focuses its practice in Phoenix -- while actively working to expand its support for the movement for police accountability, overhaul, and reimagination into California and Colorado.
