Police Misconduct is a rampant problem in this country. Recent events in Ferguson, Missouri brought national attention to an issue that has been simmering below the media radar for years. All too often, the police resort to violence when it is unnecessary. In an excellent piece of investigative journalism, the Baltimore Sun exposed the amount of money being expended by the city of Baltimore on an annual basis due to police misconduct. http://data.baltimoresun.com/news/police-settlements/
These cases are the tip of the iceberg. Certain demographics of our population are constantly harassed and abused by the police for no good reason in clear violation of their civil rights. For years, our law firm combated this problem via the exoneration of our clients in criminal cases. We exposed officer after officer as liars and saw literally no improvement in the situation. We still represent folks in criminal cases, but we have decided to change tactics to see if we can be a part of the solution.
Winning criminal cases is not enough. We are now making the police pay for their misconduct, literally. We sue police officers and police departments when they cross the line. We recently obtained a sizeable settlement in federal court on behalf of a person that was systematically cheated and wrongfully accused. http://thedailyrecord.com/2013/01/02/carroll-county-commander-charged-with-misconduct-during-murder-investigation/
