Police Violence

Siegel, Yee, Brunner & Mehta seeks justice when the police use excessive force against our vulnerable friends and neighbors.  Unnecessary injury and death at the hands of police is nothing new, but a movement against it is growing.  We are proud to do our part.

After the 2009 shooting of Oscar Grant by BART police, we worked with John Burris to represent several of Oscar’s friends who were with him at the time of the shooting. News about this case. We also worked together to represent the family of Alan Blueford, who was shot to death by an Oakland police officer.

We recently settled a federal lawsuit on behalf of the family of Yuvette Henderson, brutally shot to death by Emeryville police in 2015.  News about this case
