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.
