On behalf of a wide range of clients - individuals falsely arrested, victims of police brutality, political demonstrators, prisoners, protected classes - we have taken on prosecutors and police departments for violating sacred constitutional rights. Our successes have been possible because of thorough research and preparation, extensive evidence gathering, spirited in-court advocacy, and proactive public relations approaches outside the courtroom.
