Seattle, Washington Civil Rights Lawyer with More Than 20 Years’ Experience

In the American system of justice, too many cases slip through the cracks — barred by failure to report the incident in time or inability to produce a legally sufficient level of proof. Procedural and substantive hurdles can be surmounted at the Law Office of Susan B. Mindenbergs. With more than 20 years of experience, we thoroughly understand civil rights laws and handle state and federal claims. We are proud to serve our clients throughout King County, Thurston County and Mason County with insightful advice and sound logic as they pursue justice through the legal system.
