Police Brutality Attorneys in Metairie, Louisiana
Police brutality is a serious civil rights violation, and in many cases it can be extremely frightening for the victim or victims. When bringing a police brutality claim, make sure you work with a lawyer who not only has the experience and knowledge to help you, but also can understand what you are going through and provide compassionate representation in your case.
At The Law Office of Bruce C. Betzer in Metairie, Louisiana, our civil rights attorneys can protect your rights against violations by the police. We handle cases involving:
Excessive force: Arrests for relatively benign, nonviolent crimes are often made by hot-headed police officers with something to prove. We represented a 65-year-old grandmother who was bedridden with cancer. The police broke into the house and threw her onto the floor when making an arrest. The woman later died from complications.
Unlawful arrest: Strict rules regulate what the police can and can’t do when making an arrest. If the police have violated these rights, we can bring a wrongful arrest claim on your behalf.
The Constitution of the United States protects citizens from unlawful search and seizure and excessive violence by police. The lawyers of The Law Office of Bruce C. Betzer are here to protect those rights. Attorney Bruce Betzer himself has been a victim of excessive force and police brutality. We understand what you are going through, and we can help you.
