Police Misconduct and Abuse of Governmental Power

The United States and West Virginia Constitutions protect all individuals from improper conduct by government and law enforcement officials. Government officials and law enforcement officers have a duty to exercise their power uniformly and fairly.

Our firm will not hesitate to file claims against government officials who abuse the power that has been entrusted to them.

We have represented clients in cases against law enforcement officials for excessive force and wrongful arrest and have successfully argued such cases to high level appellate courts. Our firm has filed suit against all levels of government from local political subdivisions to filing suit against the United States government in the U.S. Court of Claims to safeguard our client's constitutional rights.
