Police Brutality Lawyers • Pennsylvania & New Jersey
You’ve Heard What the Police Have to Say — We Can Make Them Hear Your Voice Loud and Clear
At Hill & Associates, P.C., our experienced trial lawyers believe in equal rights for all. We represent people of every race, ethnicity, age, and gender.
Each year, there are thousands of complaints, involving police brutality and the use of excessive force, filed against police departments throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Additional civil rights complaints include false arrest and illegal detention, racial profiling, and even sexual assault by police.
According to published statistics provided by the office of Mayor Michael Nutter:
- In 2008 there were 697 complaints filed against police officers, and
- 744 complaints were made in 2009.
And those are just statistics for the Philadelphia Police Department.
When it is too difficult to file a complaint, some citizens just give up. Unfortunately, many complaints may be justified or attempted, but are never registered. In one undercover spot-check of the Philadelphia Police Department, five districts refused to take complaints anonymously, would not provide complaints forms, or harassed or intimidated would-be complaint filers.
When the police won’t take your complaint seriously, our civil rights attorneys will.
The police are supposed to honor your civil rights – but it is not their job to defend your civil rights. That’s where a skilled attorney can help.
Our great nation was founded on the principle that all men were created equal, but our society has failed, for centuries, to make good on that promise. If your civil rights have been violated, you need an attorney that will aggressively pursue your rights against powerful interests. Our civil rights trial lawyers for plaintiffs are strong advocates for the victims of civil rights abuses and discrimination.
If your civil rights have been violated by the police, state police, security guards, or prison officials, you need to stand up and make your voice heard. The most powerful method of doing this, is by filing a civil lawsuit against those who have wronged you, and holding them accountable for their actions.
