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.

Phrases That Work (And One That Doesn't)

  • 'Imagine' is still the most powerful word in the English language.
  • 'No excuses.' No phrase better conveys accountability, responsibility and transparency.
  • 'I get it.' Short, sweet and effective.
  • 'If you remember only one thing...' is the surest way to guarantee that people will remember the one point that matters most to you.
  • 'Uncompromising Integrity.' Of all the truthiness words, none is as powerful as 'integrity,' but in today's cynical environment, don't expect it to take you very far.
