Being mistreated by another person can break your spirit, but when the other person holds a position of power, it makes the situation even more difficult. Law enforcement misconduct is a real problem in the United States and throughout the world. We’ve seen countless news stories and videos that show law enforcers, like the police, treating citizens poorly.
Our firm is one of the few that is willing to stand up for citizens like you—citizens who have been abused by law enforcement professionals. We represent people who have suffered emotional or physical abuse from a police officer. This abuse could include, but is not limited to, the following:
- False arrest
- False imprisonment
- Discriminatory enforcement
- Police brutality
- Excessive use of force
- Abuse of power
It can be easy to remain silent if you have been abused because the other entity seems much stronger and more powerful. We understand how difficult this is, and we want you to know that your voice needs to be heard. We want to provide you with the justice you deserve.
Abuse of Power
Police misconduct is becoming a typical news story that we read about in national headlines. Thankfully, more and more police officers are required to wear body cameras, which helps to provide solid evidence as to what occurred at the time of the incident. Innocent people have been hurt and even killed due to the abuse of police officers. We know this is wrong, and we want to help you focus on what is really important: healing.
You and your family should not have to suffer because of another person’s abuse of power. The Pickett Law Firm will work with you to regain hope, strength, and compensation.
There is not one single way to avoid law enforcement misconduct; however, there are some things that we suggest for if you do come into contact with a police officer:
- Be polite
- Do as they say
- Remain calm
- Know your rights
Remaining calm in a situation like this can help you in the long run, even if it is difficult to keep a cool head at the time. If a police officer takes advantage of his or her power, we want to represent you and find the greatest possible outcome for you and your family.
