Stopping Police Brutality, Obtaining Justice
Police brutality is illegal, and victims of police brutality can sue individual officers, as well as the cities or counties that hired them for violation of their civil rights. If you’ve been beaten or assaulted or recieved taser injuries by the police, our civil rights lawyer at Lonn Heymann Law Firm, P.C., will take your side.
In our civil rights practice, we work to obtain justice for people who have been mistreated. Don’t let the police get away with police brutality. Contact us today.
Conducting an Independent Investigation
In Colorado, whenever someone makes an allegation of police brutality or other police misconduct, the state is required to conduct an investigation. However, in the vast majority of cases, the District Attorney is going to clear the police officer.
You cannot rely on the state’s investigation to result in justice being done, and our attorneys will not rely on the state’s investigation to demonstrate the central facts of the case.
We conduct a full, independent investigation in each police brutality case. We interview witnesses to the incident, doctors who treated you after the incident, former police officers who can testify as to the appropriate police conduct and other experts in order to build your case.
You can rely on us to take your side and advocate for justice in your police brutality case.
Defending You Against Criminal Charges
Once an act of police brutality occurs, the victim is almost always charged with a crime, such as assault or resisting arrest. This is so the police can make their case that they acted appropriately. Our lawyers are experienced at both criminal defense and civil rights law, so we can both defend you at the criminal trial and sue the police on your behalf.
If you are a victim of police brutality, we will be your advocates in the pursuit of justice. Contact us right away to discuss how we can help you.
