Civil Rights

Civil Rights

We defend the constitutional rights of victims. Civil rights are the rights of individuals to receive equal treatment and to be free from unfair actions or discrimination in a number of settings — including education, employment, housing, and more.

We frequently represent clients in cases of police brutality and we are constantly fighting for 1st Amendment Rights such as freedom of speech, religion and the freedom of the press.  

Whistleblower

Whistleblower

A whistleblower is a person who reports wrongdoing or corruption generally in their place of work. You have taken a stand for what is right and now we will stand with you and fight relentlessly to protect you against retaliation.

Whistleblowers provide valuable contributions to the public and we are able to help you navigate the laws that protect you.

Toxic Tort

Toxic Tort

A toxic tort claim is a specific type of personal injury lawsuit in which a person claims that exposure to a chemical or dangerous substance caused that person injury or disease.

We represent clients in toxic tort cases involving mold and chemicals such as lead and asbestos.

The Law Offices of Bonner & Bonner have also helped numerous communities stand up to large corporations who have contaminated land, air and water.

Sexual Harrasment

Sexual Harassment

Everybody has a constitutional right to be treated with dignity and respect, especially in the workplace. We will get to know you and the impact this chapter of harassment has had on your life.  
Although women are a majority target, we recognize and welcome everyone, regardless of gender or gender identification. Nobody should ever have to say “me too” again.

Bad Faith Insurance

Bad Faith Insurance

When you have purchased a commercial property or homeowners’ insurance policy, you expect the insurance company to stand behind you when disaster strikes. Unfortunately, sometimes this is not the case.

Attorney Charles A. Bonner

Master Trial Lawyer

Charles A. Bonner was born in Selma, Alabama. In 1963, at age 16, he joined the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), training, sitting in and peacefully marching for equal rights, and community organizing for the right to vote. He became a field director for SNCC’S Voter Registration Project in Wilcox County in 1965, conducting voter education and voter registration drives. He was one of hundreds who were beaten on Sunday, March 7, 1965 by Alabama State troopers, rushing the marchers on horseback, and on foot, wielding whips, nightsticks and tear gas on the Edmund Pettis Bridge during the “Bloody Sunday” Selma to Montgomery March for the right to vote. Now a trial lawyer and author, Mr. Bonner is still fighting against discrimination, environmental injustice, violence and slavery in the world.

Forever changed by his early “direct-action” in the civil rights movement, Mr. Bonner has remained committed to environmental, civil, and human rights locally and globally, including working for the rights of farmworkers. Fleeing from Selma at age 19, he arrived in San Francisco with a couple of dollars in his pocket and the ambition to make a difference. In 1972 he earned a degree in Anthropology at Sonoma State University, finishing his last 12 units studying Kiswahili in a Tanzanian village and obtaining a Certificate of Fluency from the Government of Tanzania.

Mr. Bonner returned to the U.S. to further his education, first enrolling in Stanford in the Education Department, leaving to pursue his law degree from the New College School of Law in San Francisco, CA.

Charles Bonner has been practicing law as a Civil Rights and Environmental Attorney for more than 40 years and has been the lead attorney in over 100 jury trials, involving civil rights cases, police misconduct cases, employment discrimination and personal injury cases.
