Law Enforcement

The attorneys in our Law Enforcement Group have a wide range of experience in the defense of law enforcement agencies and their professionals. We have represented law enforcement agencies in claims alleging negligent pursuit, negligent supervision and false arrest, and are commonly consulted in connection with ensuring proper procedures are employed during internal affairs investigations as required by the Police Officer’s Bill of Rights. Our attorneys have represented police officers and correctional officers sued in their personal and professional capacities in claims alleging excessive force, including wrongful death, and a wide variety of civil rights violations brought under the Fourth, Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments. Our experience extends to representing health care professionals administering medical services in prison environments. As a result of this experience, our attorneys are well versed in issues unique to the defense of these types of claims, including the immunities applicable to both the agency and individual. We appreciate the continued confidence our clients place in us by selecting us to represent them in these sensitive and often publicly reported claims.
