Police Misconduct | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Police Misconduct Lawyers

Police misconduct refers to illegal or inappropriate action taken by an officer. It can involve a violation of state law, federal law, or police department rules and regulations. Police misconduct occurs when police officers take improper action during their official duties. Such misconduct can not only deprive individuals of their freedom, but it also can result in permanent physical, mental, and emotional injury.

Common Types of Police Misconduct Include:

  • Police brutality
  • False or wrongful arrest
  • Illegal search and seizure
  • Excessive use of force
  • Malicious prosecution
  • Sexual misconduct

“To serve and protect,” this has now become a cliché, so much so that some police officers have lost the true meaning of what it means to serve and protect. While there are many faithful policemen and women executing their duties to protect and serve with good conscience and dignity, there is a minority who choose to behave like the very criminals they are supposed to be apprehending. If you pay close attention to the media, there is a rise in the number of police misconduct incidents.

Civil rights law and seeking compensation where you have been wronged by the government, is a legally complex and usually overwhelming thought. Indeed, standing up against a police officer, corrections officer or other government officials can be a scary and confusing proposition. At the Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm, we routinely represent people who have had the civil rights violated under both state law as well as the federal statute 42 USC § 1983. We have experience in standing up for ordinary people against the government. Fighting the government is what we do.

Think you may have a civil right, police abuse or police misconduct claim?

5 stars just isnt enough for Andrew Marcantel, Marc Victor, and the entire staff here.When my... boyfriend was wrongly accused of a totally vile crime, neither of us had any experience navigating the "just-us" system.If you've faced potentially life-altering accusations, and you feel like the system is set up to empower police, prosecutors, judges, and pretty much everyone except you, then you're right! If you want to level the playing feild, Attorneys for Freedom will accomplish that.Some others have commented about the price. Good representation does cost money, unfortunately. What is a persons future worth?Compared to the competition, which is also expensive, the value you will get at this law firm is just unbelievable. Andrew especially is so great at walking you through possible scenerios, guiding you through important decisions, and has the experience to truly get good results. Extremely knowledgeable and creative not just "aggressive". He is also an excellent communicator, both in the office and in the court.Speaking of communication, the paralegal team at even some more expensive law firms will leave you wondering what it is they are paid to do. This is not the case at Attorneys for Freedom. Ashley Crispino and Kaylie Kline did an amazing job at both keeping us in the loop and being available when needed.Reading "Case Dismissed" after what felt like an eternity of fighting was the best outcome we could have ever asked for.I told my Aunt who was very worried about us at the height of all the absurdity that I felt like having Andy on our side was better than prayer. And I was right.read more

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
