In addition to our criminal defense practice, we practice in the field of plaintiffs’ civil rights, which means that we take on cases where individuals have been injured or wronged by the actions of government officials, most commonly the police and the cities that employ them. The legal field of civil rights is broad and can be challenging. Bringing a lawsuit against the police or a city requires tact and focus. Our attorneys have challenged the police, local governments, and cities for constitutional violations suffered by our clients.
Civil rights prosecutions are nearly always of a constitutional dimension. Thus, civil rights cases require the careful devotion and unique skills of a capable team of attorneys. At Lundgren & Johnson, we fight aggressively to ensure that the rights of our clients are vindicated in state and federal courts. The following types of cases are representative of our civil rights practice.
- Gun Rights
- Illegal Search or Seizure
- Police Brutality and Excessive Force
- Property Deprivation
- State Law Claims
Most commonly, civil rights cases are brought against government officials, agents, and authorities acting on the government’s behalf. Of these, the most frequent civil rights cases are brought against the police for claims including excessive force, unlawful search or seizure, unlawful arrest, property deprivation, and due process violations. A whole lot can depend on the very specific facts of a given case. If you believe you have been injured through the excessive force of a police officer or other government official, or have had your rights violated by an unlawful search, seizure, or arrest, please feel free to contact our law firm for an initial, no-cost consultation.
