Courage in the Face of Adversity
Since that first case in 2006, Mr. Claypool has taken on numerous child sexual abuse cases, wrongful death cases and excessive force cases throughout Southern California and the Pacific Northwest. He will be the first to state that finding justice isn’t always about winning a battle of goliath proportions. Rather, it’s about being fearless enough to take a civil rights case to a jury verdict.
When necessary, Mr. Claypool partners with other preeminent civil rights attorneys, who are nothing short of tenacious and fearless in prosecuting these cases. Together, they are capable of marshaling a significant amount of resources to fight against government and law enforcement agencies. This partnership also affords clients access to several brilliant legal minds and expertise at a minimal cost.
Mr. Claypool learned early on through the heroic example of his parents about fighting tirelessly for the rights of others. Both parents fought in the military, defending the very freedoms and Constitution that their son now fights to uphold on behalf of his clients. Through their bravery and example, Mr. Claypool developed the unfettered passion and dedication he pours into each and every case he takes on. Stepping into the courtroom is not unlike how his parents stepped out onto the frontline of battle. With each case Mr. Claypool tries, he’s reminded of the courage, bravery, and selflessness of his parents, who are both at rest in Arlington Cemetery, and considers it an honor and privilege to continue their fight and legacy. In addition, having endured significant emotional abuse and neglect growing up as a child, Mr. Claypool is able to effectively relate to the abuse of victims he represents, which translates into a powerful, organic, and effective advocacy.
