Abuses of Civil Rights
Everyone, regardless of race, gender, sex, or religion, is entitled to be treated with respect and afforded the protection of the law. Sadly, police overreach often results in targeting individuals based on genetic factors and engaging in practices that violate guaranteed rights.

Civil Rights Abuses

Examples of civil rights abuses include:


  • Unlawful arrest
  • Illegal search and seizure
  • “Stop and frisk”
  • Excessive use of force
  • Unnecessary detention
  • Emotional abuse

Police are here to protect the safety of all citizens, not to engage in the interrogation and abuse of those they target as “suspicious.” If you have suffered damages following an interaction with police that you believe was unlawful, immoral, or unethical, we would be happy to hear your complaint and help you decide how best to proceed.

For more information regarding your rights following any type of mistreatment from law enforcement, please contact our experienced civil rights attorneys today. Our attorneys maintain offices throughout the United States to better serve victims of abuse in every area of the country.
