Civil Rights

Civil rights cases against law enforcement generally take the form of police misconduct involving excessive force or police brutality. Civil rights are derived from the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of
Rights, the California Constitution, and various state and federal laws that protect ordinary citizens from unreasonable, unjustified, and excessive use of force that causes physical and emotional harm.

Most civil rights cases are done on a contingency fee basis. This means that the law firm does not take a fee or get paid, unless you win. If you believe you or someone close to you has been a victim of police misconduct, please don’t hesitate to contact our team at the Law Offices of David R. Silldorf, APC, for a free consultation
