Beaman Law

Justice for Working People.

Justicia Para el Pueblo Trabajador -- Justice for Working People

Beaman Law is the independent law practice of attorney Megan Beaman, rooted in the notion that all people deserve access to justice and enforcement of basic rights. Beaman Law's practice is founded on Megan's years of advocacy and activism in working class and immigrant communities, including the recent many years of successful representation of rural communities in Coachella Valley, Imperial Valley, and other parts of California. Beaman Law represents clients and communities in enforcing their rights in the areas of employment, housing, immigration, civil rights, and policy -- all with the understanding of the larger struggles for immigrant and worker justice in California and nationwide.

A south-bound train passes farm workers shortly after sunrise on October 10, 2007 in the Coachella Valley near Mecca, California.

A group of residents in the Coachella Valley has complained to the Coachella Valley Water District about poor water access and sewage problems. They say at issue is the lack of diversity among local leaders and they claim the water district has violated California's Voting Rights Act by not allowing for sufficient representation of Latinos. For more on this, we're joined by Megan Beaman. She's a civil rights lawyer representing some of the Latino voters living in the Coachella Valley.
