About Our Law Firm and What We Do

Rachel Lederman and Alexsis C. Beach have been providing high quality, affordable legal services for 28 years. Our mission is to advance social justice by advocating for, and working collaboratively with, those who are disempowered in the legal system.

We have offices in San Francisco’s Mission District, and now also in downtown Oakland as part of the Oakland Law Collaborative.

We practice throughout the Bay Area in the following main areas:

Civil Rights / Police Misconduct

Rachel Lederman has been challenging law enforcement brutality and misconduct for 25 years and has achieved significant settlements in high profile police misconduct cases that have changed Bay Area police policies.

Tenants’ Rights / Wrongful Eviction, Habitability and Discrimination

Alexsis Beach and Rachel Lederman fight for the right to affordable, safe and adequate housing.

Family Law

Alexsis Beach works with traditional and LGBTQ families to get through divorce with as little stress as possible, and with modifications of child support and visitation. She can also help people who are starting a family using Assisted Reproductive Technology to make their intentions clear with sperm donor agreements and ovum donor agreements.

Personal Injury

Alexsis Beach and Rachel Lederman advocate aggressively to get fair compensation for people injured in bike, car and pedestrian accidents.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Alexsis Beach helps individuals discharge their consumer debts in bankruptcy so they can make a new start and establish credit.
