Police Misconduct Lawyer DC

A police misconduct lawyer in Washington, D.C. can help you finally get the justice you deserve. Reach out to Cohen & Cohen P.C. today to get started with your case, and read on to learn more about how police misconduct can affect you and your community.

Police Brutality vs. Police Misconduct

Examples of police brutality include beatings or torture, the unlawful use of restraint, unnecessary strip searches, and the use of excessive force. Excessive force largely depends on the circumstances surrounding a police officer’s use of force, and you may need to contact a DC police misconduct lawyer to better understand whether an officer’s use of force was reasonable or excessive.

You may have heard of police brutality before – whether it was on the news or whether you were unfortunate enough to experience it firsthand. Police brutality covers a wide range of violent police actions that are deemed inappropriate or excessive, and while it tends to get the most attention in the press, it’s only part of a much wider problem: Police misconduct.

What is Police Misconduct?

Police misconduct is a larger umbrella that includes police brutality. While all police brutality is police misconduct, not all police misconduct is police brutality. The “police misconduct” label is used to cover all illegal and inappropriate actions taken by the police, not just the violent actions associated with police brutality.

Examples of police misconduct include police brutality, but police misconduct covers a lot more ground. Falsifying evidence, unlawful search and seizure, coercion during interrogations, and unwarranted surveillance all fall under police misconduct. Police misconduct also includes intimidation, racial profiling, and corruption.

Police misconduct is a major problem with no easy solution. There are many different types of police misconduct – and just as many options to take to prevent it from happening in your community. Fortunately, legal and community action can deter police misconduct from affecting others like you.

Legal Action Against Police Misconduct

Police misconduct destroys a community’s trust in their law enforcement departments and officers. Even worse, it subjects everyday people to unlawful – and often dehumanizing – abuse and humiliation. If you were on the receiving end of police brutality and misconduct, you may feel angry, confused, frightened, and worst of all, completely helpless.

Fortunately, with the help of Cohen & Cohen, you can take action to empower yourself and your fellow citizens against abusive and corrupt law enforcement. When you take legal action against the officers or departments responsible for your abuse, you can take a major step towards real justice in your community, while also preventing it from happening to anyone else.

As recent community and legal action has proven, you don’t need to accept police misconduct or abuse from law enforcement – whether physical or otherwise. The police have a responsibility to protect us, not to overstep their authority and make us feel victimized or unsafe. Contacting a lawyer can right those wrongs.

Don’t wait to get the justice you deserve: Reach out to a police misconduct lawyer in Washington, D.C. to get started on your case, and see how Cohen & Cohen can help.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
