Most communities are proud of their police departments. Sheriff’s offices, prisons, and police departments have a tough job to do, and they usually serve the community well.

If you have been injured or a loved one has died as a result of police brutality, prison guard abuse, failure to receive medical treatment while in jail or prison, or another civil rights violation, contact us immediately.

You need an experienced civil rights lawyer working for you now.
