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.

Uber ignored its diversity problem. Now it’s paying for it in spades.

Uber is under fire after a former engineer made headlines for publishing a detailed account of her experiences with sexual harassment—and Uber executives not addressing it. The timing seems particularly awful for Uber, which just lost 200,000 customers for the way it handled President Donald Trump’s immigration ban. But Uber has been one of the few holdouts not tackling the problems of diversity and inclusion that ail much of Silicon Valley. Now, the company has to pay for it.
