Pursuing justice for the victims of police shootings

Have you or someone you’ve known been the victim of an unjustified police shooting?

  • Have you been falsely accused of pointing a weapon or being resistant?
  • Have you been lied to by the police?
  • Has evidence been planted to be used against you?

You are not alone. We have represented more victims of police shootings than any other firm in Chicago, and no firm’s track record can compare with ours. We have garnered a reputation that fosters the highest possible settlements for our clients.

Oftentimes, when a police officer shoots someone without justification, the police department falsely accuses the victim of having done something to provoke the shooting. These cases are extremely difficult to win, but our police brutality attorneys are willing to put in the hundreds or even thousands of hours required to win your case.

Based on extensive experience in cases involving police shootings, we have developed an effective strategy that begins with a one-on-one consultation. After meeting with you, our police brutality attorneys will assemble a team to prepare your case file, which will include:

  • Expert testimony from
    • Police officers
    • Medical experts
    • Physical scientists
    • Ballistic experts
    • Crime scene investigators
  • Blood splatter analysis
  • Bullet trajectory analysis
