Civil Rights Advocates
Were you injured by the police? While police are legally permitted to use force, there are limits. If the police used an unreasonable amount of force, they have gone beyond their authority. If you or a loved one were injured by police who used an unreasonable amount of force, we can help.
Were you jailed for a crime you did not commit? Were you stopped by the police for no reason? Were you detained while the police searched your person or vehicle and found nothing illegal? The United States Constitution requires that police officers have probable cause to arrest you or an objectively reasonable suspicion to stop and search you. Sometimes the police stop, search, or arrest people for the wrong reason or for no reason at all. If this happens to you, we can help.
Were you treated unfairly by the police? Were you singled out for an arrest when others were not arrested for doing the same thing? Were you targeted by the police for an illegitimate reason? If so, we may be able to help.
People who are incarcerated in jails and prisons have the right to be free from excessive force and brutality. Prisoners also have a right to medical care in jail and to be in reasonably safe and sanitary conditions. If you or a loved one have been harmed by prison officials, either on purpose or due to deliberate neglect, we may be able to help.
If any of the topics above have happened to you, your friends, or your family, you may be entitled to compensation for the violation of your rights.
