At Waples & Hanger, we are committed to seeing that justice is achieved when people are harmed by governmental wrongdoing.

We litigate in challenging areas of civil rights and constitutional law. Our cases include false arrest, police brutality and misconduct, inhumane prison conditions, lack of medical/mental health care for incarcerated individuals, wrongful death, failure to protect, civil rights and equal protection, whistle blowing and First Amendment, the rights of vulnerable populations – such as children, ethnic and racial minorities, and individuals with disabilities – consumer class actions and other civil rights violations.

Our firm devotes extensive resources to advance the rights of children.

We commit considerable resources toward the advancement of children’s legal rights through legislative advocacy and professional association efforts, augmenting our litigation and legal advocacy.
