We understand that it is hard to know where to turn when you have experienced employment discrimination or had your rights violated by the police. We can provide a safe space for you to decide what to do next. We will listen to your story and help you understand your options.

The Fourth Amendment Protects Against Excessive Force

As instances of police brutality continue to plague our country, too many people who are just trying to live their lives suddenly find they have become a victim. When this happens, your civil rights have probably been violated.

The Fourth Amendment guarantees protection from “excessive force.” Police are supposed to use the minimum amount of force necessary to protect themselves and others from harm or diffuse a dangerous situation.

If excessive force is used, you have the right to hold your aggressor accountable. By talking to an experienced civil rights lawyer, you can learn the options you have for doing this.
