police brutality

Medina Orthwein LLP fights to protect those who have been abused at the hands of police officers, to hold officers accountable for their misconduct, and to create meaningful reform within police departments that lack the policies and training to protect civilians from discrimination and abuse.  Our attorneys have won substantial relief for those who have been harmed by law enforcement officials who overstepped their authority, used excessive force in their interactions with civilians, and illegally subjected civilians to unnecessary searches and seizures.

Our efforts to curb police misconduct and brutality extend beyond winning monetary relief for our clients – we are dedicated to creating systemic change within a legal landscape that vests police officers with lethal authority while shielding them from legal liability.  We are also committed to fighting the racial profiling that runs rampant in police departments across the country, which has caused Black and brown people to be disproportionately searched, jailed, and killed by police officers.

If you have been a victim of police brutality, police misconduct, or excessive force, please contact us to see if we can help.
