Philadelphia Police Brutality Lawyers

Fighting back against illegal police actions

The law firm of Patrick G. Geckle LLC helps victims of police brutality and other forms of police misconduct in eastern and central Pennsylvania fight back.  Police brutality is a serious civil rights violation.  Often victims think they are powerless in the face of police or prison guard misconduct and brutality. However, if your rights have been violated, you can hold the police officers accountable for their actions. You are also legally entitled to seek compensation for your injuries. In order to prevail, you need a lawyer who can and does fight back on your behalf.

In addition to police brutality and false arrest, police misconduct also includes:

  • Improper or illegal search and seizure
  • Harassment and racism in law enforcement
  • Strip searches
  • Withholding or destroying evidence favorable to an accused
  • Planting evidence
  • Denial of medical attention

Fighting back against police misconduct is important. The police are not above the law. Police misconduct violates the oath taken by peace officers and their responsibilities as public servants.  Police misconduct has serious implications for our society as a whole because it creates distrust between the police and the public they are intended to protect.

In addition, there can be serious consequences for victims of police misconduct beyond physical injury, including:

  • Wrongful criminal convictions
  • Loss of property
  • Loss of freedom
  • Social stigma

The law firm of Patrick G. Geckle LLC is exclusively focused on fighting back against police misconduct. It takes difficult cases and fights with passion to prevail for its clients.  All of our clients are treated with the compassion and respect they deserve.
