You should be able to trust the police. Milwaukee police officers, for example, take an oath that includes a promise not to betray the public trust. That same oath requires police officers to take accountability for their actions and to uphold the constitution.
Acts of police brutality or police violence violate all of these elements of an officer’s oath. If you’ve been hurt by a police officer’s use of excessive force, then you need someone whom you trust to represent you and help you make a fair financial recovery.

- Meet with the lawyer you might hire, free of charge, before making a decision. Often, a face-to-face meeting is important. During this time, you will get a gut feeling about the attorney and about whether you can trust the attorney to represent you in a police brutality case.
- Ask questions of the lawyer. You have the right to ask the hard questions. For example, you can ask about the lawyer’s experience, how the lawyer will communicate with you during the case, and how the lawyer will address potentially difficult issues during litigation.
- Do your own research. You can ask a lawyer you are thinking about hiring for references from other clients, you can review the law firm’s testimonial page, and you can look at attorney review sites, for example.
