Don’t let its small footprint fool you -- San Francisco packs a tremendous amount into its 49 square miles. Between the Victorian houses, the cable cars, and Golden Gate Park, it is no wonder that so many people leave their hearts in the City by the Bay. Life here is not always postcard perfect, however, and legal information can be difficult to sort through. To help you find the legal information you need, FindLaw has assembled the following articles and resource pages. So, whether you’ve gotten hurt at AT&T Park, fear that a criminal charge might have you headed to Alcatraz (and not as a tourist), or you simply need to know more about the city’s court system or legal aid resources, here is some information about common legal issues in Baghdad by the Bay.
