Philadelphia Police Misconduct Lawyers

The United States is a recognized leader in protecting the rights of the individual, even when that person is someone accused of breaking the law.  Here in Philadelphia, most police officers are careful to respect the civil rights of a suspect.  Unfortunately, some cross the line.  When police officers overstep their authority and willfully violate your constitutional and civil rights, the law considers it police misconduct.  That is when you need the help of a skilled Philadelphia police brutality lawyer to end the illegal treatment and win justice.

Police misconduct can take many forms, including the following:

  • Off-duty misconduct
  • Police corruption
  • Political repression
  • Racial profiling
  • Sexual abuse
  • Surveillance abuse
  • Misuse of taser guns

Excessive force and the misuse of Tasers

One of the most common forms of police misconduct is the use of excessive force, often referred to as police brutality.  It can result in serious physical, psychological, and emotional injury, or even death.  Some firms will not touch these difficult cases, but our Philadelphia criminal defense law firm has won justice and fair compensation by fighting aggressively for our clients in police brutality cases, including:

  • Victims injured by harsh physical, psychological, and emotional treatment
  • Victims injured by the misuse of Tasers
  • Families of individuals who died as the result of police brutality
  • Jail and prison inmates injured when guards use excessive force

Patrick G. Geckle LLC is at the forefront of litigating against the increasingly common misuse of Tasers by police and prison guards.  Our Philadelphia police brutality lawyers are currently involved in a suit against Taser International.
