Chicago is notorious for the rate of misconduct among officers in our city, and if your civil rights have been violated, you may feel helpless and unable to defend yourself.

- Excessive force and outright brutality
- Unjustified deadly force
- Misuse of police dogs
- False arrest and illegal detention
- Illegal or unreasonable searches
