Few things are worse than when those sworn to uphold the law break it. If this has happened to you, Goetz & Eckland is there to protect your rights and vindicate your wrong. For nearly two decades, our lawyers have been “fighting city hall” for clients beaten, shot, or falsely arrested by police officers; clients abused, assaulted, or denied obviously necessary medical care by jailers or prison officials; and other clients who have been deprived of their constitutional rights by government officials.
Civil rights cases are complex, expensive, and hard fought. Defendants often claim immunity. Our lawyers have been able to convince judges to reject these claims. Our civil rights team has tried many civil rights cases in state and federal courts. We know what it takes to win these challenging cases.
