Attorneys Dedicated To Protecting Your Rights And Fighting Injustice
Over the past few years, Americans have become increasingly aware of the abuses of power among police officers. Because of this, more people are being heard as they speak up about violations of their civil rights.
If you’ve been the victim of police misconduct or have otherwise experienced civil rights violations, you can push back against these injustices and seek accountability and compensation. However, these cases can be difficult to prove, often breaking down to your word against the word of law enforcement. It is important to work with skilled attorneys like the legal team at Williams & Piatt, LLC. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in police misconduct claims and other civil rights cases across Indiana.
Recognizing And Responding To Civil Rights Violations
Police and prosecutors are given tremendous amounts of power and wide latitude to do their jobs. For this reason, it isn’t always easy to recognize what is a violation of your rights and what is an allowable (if unethical) law enforcement action. Some examples of likely civil rights violations include:
- Excessive force or police brutality
- Police harassment
- False arrest
- Failure to intervene
- Arrest without a warrant or probable cause
- Warrantless search of your home or person
- Malicious prosecution
Context and details are highly important in these cases. That’s why we invite you to contact us to discuss the details of your case with our experienced lawyers. They can help you understand your rights and determine if you have an actionable legal claim. They will also walk you through the legal process so that you know what to expect as your case progresses.
Defending Parents In Child Protective Services Matters
Like police, employees of Child Protective Services (CPS) have broad powers to investigate parents, remove children from their homes and even terminate parental rights. Sometimes, all it takes is one report of possible child mistreatment from a credible source to result in children being taken from their parents.
If you’ve been unfairly and baselessly accused of child abuse and/or your children have been taken by CPS, contact our firm immediately to discuss your options. It is important to act quickly to protect your parental rights and minimize the trauma that your children may experience.
