Civil Rights and Employment Law Attorneys

At Peter E. Martin, A Law Corporation, we are dedicated to providing effective, professional representation to people with civil rights or employment law claims in Arcata, Eureka, Humboldt County and most of Northern California.  Our clients come first.  We work hard to ensure you understand the legal process and to achieve the best outcome for your personal situation. When you need a civil rights or employment lawyer, let us at Peter E. Martin a Law Corporation fight for you.

We conduct a general litigation and trial practice, with expertise in the following areas of law:

  • Civil Rights (including discrimination & harassment)

  • First Amendment Claims

  • Wrongful Termination

  • Sexual Harassment

  • Personal Injury/Auto Accident

  • Police Brutality or Misconduct

  • California Public Records Act Request Litigation

We accept civil rights, sexual harassment, employment law, personal injury, and some misconduct cases and other cases on contingency.  This means there is no upfront cost to you to bring the lawsuit.  We take a percentage of any monies recovered on your behalf.

We prefer to file your case in federal court, where the wait times are often shorter and the damage awards higher, than in many state courts.

We take cases in the following counties in: Del Norte, Humboldt, Mendocino, Sonoma, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Lake, Napa, Contra Costa, Alameda, Santa Clara, San Benito, Calaveras, Stanislaus, Tuolumne, Merced, Mariposa, Madera, Fresno, Inyo, Kings, Tulare, Kern, Alpine, Amador, Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Mono, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Solano, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, Yolo, and Yuba.
