Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. – Lord Acton
What is Police Officer Assault and Use of Excessive Force?
We represent the victims of beatings or injuries resulting from use of excessive force by police officers or prison guards throughout California.
Police officers and prison guards are employed to protect us from harm, not mete out physical punishment. The law protects all citizens from violence at the hands of the police, even people accused or convicted of crimes. When those in positions of authority overstep their bounds, what recourse is there for the targets of their actions? Can they just get away with violating a person’s civil rights? We provide strong representation to clients throughout California in police officer assault and prison injury cases. Our attorneys are thoroughly versed in the laws and individuals’ rights concerning police misconduct and prison guard abuse.
While every case is unique and your results may vary, our firm has won jury trials or obtained settlements in many California police brutality cases. One of our cases resulted in the largest verdict against a police agency in Ventura County History (2.1 million in a police shooting case which did not result in death).
We also provide legal counsel in police misconduct cases not involving physical force, such as false arrest, racial profiling and other civil rights violations. You do have rights! Contact us to talk to one of our experienced police brutality lawyers about your claim.
Our attorneys will provide a free assessment of your police brutality, false arrest, prison injury or other misconduct claim. Call us today at (818) 226-5700 for a FREE CONSULTATION.
