A Premier Civil Rights Firm Serving Alabama Clients For Decades

Most of us take our civil rights for granted. We may not even give them much thought – until they are violated. Then, the feelings of injustice and powerlessness can be overwhelming. If your rights have been violated by police officers, prosecutors or other law enforcement officials, you can fight back with the help of Hank Sherrod, Civil Rights Trial Lawyer.

I am Hank Sherrod, an attorney who has been helping victims stand up to abuses of power for more than 25 years. You can’t always count on the criminal justice system to hold these perpetrators accountable, but I can help you seek compensation in civil court and work to publicly expose police brutality and law enforcement misconduct. I am proud to be one of the leading civil rights lawyers in Alabama, and I serve clients throughout the state.

Boo appeared on the office doorstep in 2017. He thinks he owns the place.
