Public Official Misconduct & Civil Rights Claims

Our law firm has long been a hardworking force for the public good as well as the protection of the fundamental rights of our clients. Our practice is founded on the idea that no one’s position, power or wealth places them above the law. From police and other law enforcement officials to those elected to public office, people in positions of authority must be held accountable for their actions.

Our strengths in serious personal injury litigation and criminal defense are important assets for evaluating your potential claim involving public official misconduct. We have pursued a high-stakes lawsuit on behalf of the victims of an Illinois state trooper whose extreme reckless driving caused a fatal car accident, for example.
