Our civil rights work has been motivated by our belief that those entrusted with the power to enforce the law must be held accountable when they violate the law. We have brought claims for false arrest, malicious prosecution, excessive force, unconstitutional searches and seizures, wrongful convictions, and the inhumane treatment of prisoners.
These are difficult and time-consuming cases that require skill and perseverance. We are very selective when deciding what civil rights cases we can take on. If we do take your case, you can be assured that we will bring to it the same passion and devotion that we do to all of our work.
We have won important victories for clients abused by police officers and prison guards. We have also obtained justice for law enforcement officers who acted conscientiously and then were mistreated by their superiors for doing the right thing. We have also won compensation for clients who were wrongly incarcerated for crimes they did not commit. These are complicated cases. You need a lawyer who understands how the process works and how to prove your case in court.
