Police Misconduct

Excessive force and false arrest

Are you a victim of police misconduct?

The United States Constitution requires that federal, state, and local police officials refrain from making false arrests and that they use only reasonable amounts of force. A federal law, 42 U.S.C. § 1983, allows individuals whose constitutional rights have been violated by federal, state, and local government officials to seek compensation in court. I represent individuals who have been falsely arrested and individuals who have been subjected to excessive force, including victims of police shootings, assaults, pepper spray, and tasers.

If you believe your constitutional rights have been violated, use my online form or call 888-764-4141 for a free consultation.
