If you need legal advice or representation, look no further.
My name is James Mayfield Jr. In 2013 my son Joshua Mayfield was discovered in his jail cell at Sacramento County Jail in a prone position with a broken neck unable to move. Joshua was mentally ill due to a serious brain injury during a High School Football game. His cognitive abilities never fully returned. Joshua had seizures and required medical and mental health care. Joshua’s legal rights and constitutional rights had been trampled on by the local authorities and the Sheriff's Deputies.
Joshua was 18 years old when he walked into Sacramento County Jail. He came out on a stretcher. Never able to walk again.
Events or cases like Joshua’s are hard to prove or prosecute in the courts. Our search for legal representation was an arduous process as we met with many law firms only to be disappointed.
Finally, through an attorney friend, we were introduced to Hadsell & Stormer. It was to our good fortune that Barbara Hadsell and Dan Stormer compassionately took our case. They and their team effectively investigated our case, and they diligently pursued the oppressors. The firm’s attention to detail as far as I could tell was impeccable. Barbara and Dan managed the case professionally and put tremendous effort and resources into getting it right. This required many hours of preparation. They prepared and executed all necessary motions, depositions, court appearances, etc.
The Hadsell & Stormer team prepared our case and presented it in Federal Court. Right before the beginning of my son’s trial in Federal Court, the County settled the case. I credit the settlement to the strategy and attention to detail that Barbara, Dan and their team had given in preparation for the trial. In effect, the results of the settlement restored my son’s dignity in society. I am extremely confident that if you are fortunate that Hadsell & Stormer takes your case, they will pursue it diligently and do an excellent job for you.
