Holding Police And Government Officials Accountable

Government officials and law enforcement officers have a duty to exercise their power uniformly and fairly. When these officials commit civil rights violations, the lawyers at Arnold & Bailey will advocate for you.
When police officers arrest you for a crime in West Virginia, some police officers take great care to protect your constitutional rights. Other police officers, unfortunately, violate your legal protections.
