Strong Support For Victims Of Police Misconduct
Law enforcement is essential to maintain safety and order in Chicago. Unfortunately, some police officers abuse their authority, demonstrating brutality and unnecessary force. Their actions severely injure and even kill individuals every year.
If you or a loved one was harmed by law enforcement, you deserve justice. At Montgomery Law Firm LLC, we understand the fear that you may feel standing up to the Chicago Police Department. Our experienced legal team will advocate on your behalf and protect your rights. Attorney James D. Montgomery Jr. has over 35 years of experience and can confidently help you find the resolution you need.
Thorough Examination Of Instances Of Misconduct
Our team can represent you after all manner of police wrongdoing, including:
- Use of excessive force
- Injury or death due to brutal tactics
- Violation of rights during arrest or questioning
- Tampering with evidence
- Improper police pursuits
Mr. Montgomery can carefully evaluate the circumstances surrounding the victim’s interaction with law enforcement. He will look for instances of an officer breaking protocol, violating the victim’s rights or using unnecessary force. Even when an officer has the right to make an arrest, they must still properly interact with the arrested individual, uphold their rights and only use the degree of force necessary to contain the situation.
We can identify instances of abuse, and use this information to pursue a resolution either through settlement or court. We will ensure that you know your options and help you make the right choice for you and your entire family.
In years past, we secured a $500,000 verdict for the victim of excessive force, and $8.5 million for a teen’s family who was shot and killed by a police officer. Read more about these cases and other past case results here.
