Gerhardstein & Branch Co. LPA is committed to using the law to help those on the margins of power.
Our clients are often the victims of police brutality, discrimination, mistreatment, or violence by those abusing corporate or government power. We view each case as a problem that needs a solution. And we solve those problems using the federal and state constitution, civil rights statutes, state laws, the media, direct negotiations, mediation, and any other available means. For many, fair compensation is all that can be pursued. But other clients want to prevent similar abuses in the future. That means systemic reform – new policies, training, or even memorials – permanent visual reminders to those in power to remain vigilant in protecting the rights of all persons.
We speak out publicly on behalf of clients whose rights are at risk.
