Seeking Compensation for Victims of Police Officer Misconduct
Although law enforcement have authority under the law, that does not mean they can abuse their powers or violate your civil rights. If you are a victim of a false arrest, police brutality or racial profiling, you may have a civil rights claim and can seek compensation for damages.

You must act quickly and file a claim with the city since you only have 90 days under the statutes of limitations. We offer free initial consultations.
Illegal Arrests and Mistreatment
In some cases, racial profiling may be behind a false arrest or police brutality case. This is not only illegal and a violation of civil rights but morally corrupt. Confinement, excessive force, physical aggression, abuse and even humiliation are all grounds for seeking compensation. Being falsely arrested is damaging not only to a person's reputation but can seriously affect his or her employment.
