Atlanta Police Misconduct Attorneys
Skillful Navigation of Your Legal Circumstances
Most police officers are dedicated to keeping us safe. However, there are some rouge police officers who abuse their authority. Police brutality occurs when a member of law enforcement goes beyond reasonable force and employs unreasonable or excessive force on someone they have placed in custody, which oftentimes leads to serious injuries or death. Police misconduct occurs when a police officer violates your Constitutional rights, oftentimes during a search. A wrongful arrest occurs when you are arrested without sufficient probable cause.
If you have been a victim of police brutality, police misconduct or a 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 today!

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.
