Back to Practice Areas

We represent peace officers and departments in claims alleging violation of civil rights arising under both state and federal law, including lawsuits alleging violations of 42 U.S.C. Section 1983 and California’s equivalent, the Bane Act. We routinely defend peace officers in federal and state court against a wide variety of claims, including excessive force, search and seizure, and claims seeking punitive damages. Our team maintains a real-world understanding of the underlying training, policies and practices related to law enforcement. Not only do our attorneys provide law enforcement training, but they work in conjunction with several departments to successfully update and implement appropriate policies.
