Police Misconduct

Atlanta Police Misconduct Attorneys

Defending Your Rights Against Police Brutality & Misconduct

Most police officers are dedicated to keeping us safe. However, there are some rogue police officers who abuse their authority and overstep their right to question you, search your property, and even detain you. If you have been a victim of police misconduct, police brutality, or wrongful arrest, then your state and/or federal constitutional rights may have been violated.


With more than 100 years of collective criminal defense experience, our Atlanta police misconduct lawyers can effectively fight on your behalf. Contact Ross & Pines, LLC today!


What is Police Misconduct?

Police misconduct occurs when a police officer violates your Constitutional rights, oftentimes during a search. Unfortunately, the average person is not fully aware of their civil rights and may be taken advantage of by over-zealous or even malicious police officers.

One of the most serious acts of law enforcement misconduct is police brutality, which occurs when a member of law enforcement employs unreasonable or excessive force on someone they have placed in custody, which oftentimes leads to serious injuries or death.

Other examples of police misconduct involve:

  • Excessive force
  • Concealing evidence
  • Destroying evidence
  • K-9 maulings
  • Malicious prosecution
  • Police shootings
  • Wrongful arrest

Compensation for Police Misconduct Injuries

We place our trust in police officers and other members of law enforcement to protect us, not cause harm. When that trust is violated permanent injuries or death can occur. You need someone to fight for justice.

At Ross & Pines, LLC, we protect the rights of Atlanta residents who have suffered serious physical injuries and emotional trauma due to unreasonable and excessive violence while being detained or arrested.

We pursue maximum compensation for the following:

  • Lost income
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages
  • Attorney's fees and litigation costs

While many victims are hesitant to pursue legal action against the police, acts of excessive force deserve a strong response. Many lawsuits we file include punitive damages that serve to send a strong message in the form of punishment or deterrence to similar conduct.


To take legal action if you have been injured due to police brutality or other forms of excessive force, schedule a free initial consultation by calling a police misconduct lawyer in Atlanta at (888) 838-4858!
