Police Misconduct and Brutality

What are your Civil Rights?

Police misconduct cases often involve violations of the Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution.

The Fourth Amendment protects you against unlawful searches and seizures as well as police brutality.  The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments protect you against deprivations of “due process,” providing the foundation for many claims over wrongful arrests and wrongful convictions.

Claims based on these constitutional provisions often involve complicated legal questions that do not arise in other types of lawsuits.  To obtain meaningful recovery, it is important to have a knowledgeable attorney with experience pursuing such claims.
