Ligidium sp.
Are these pictures all of the same individual? First shot looks like Ligidium latum per the small dorsal tubercles. Other two photos seem to be of L. gracile (more elongated body, relatively smooth dorsal surface.) This paper has a nice key to Oniscidea in the bay area: https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/15776329#page/317/mode/1up

 
You are correct.
I have unlinked the other two images.

Crustacean
Something in Peracarida would be my guess--but wait to hear from someone who actually knows these critters. :)
