In recent years, we have all heard of incidents where persons placed in authority by the government, including law enforcement officers, have abused the public trust and used excessive force or otherwise violated the rights of citizens, often with truly shocking results.
The attorneys in this firm have successfully represented the victims of civil rights violations — we even have experience representing members of law enforcement who have themselves been the victims of police misconduct. In fact, this firm has represented law enforcement officers both who have been the victims of cop-on-cop violence and also in the context of blowing the whistle on corruption within the agency. The most widely known lawsuits filed against the federal and state governments often involve violent incidents such as shootings, beatings, and sexual assaults — cases this firm is exceptionally well-prepared to handle. We have also handled a wide variety of lawsuits against the government in non-violent contexts.
