Far too many people have experienced false imprisonment and wrongful convictions. These violations of your constitutional rights can cost you not only your career and reputation but also your freedom.

With more than 60 years of experience between us, we have recovered more than $200 million in compensation for our clients. When your freedom is at stake, you can rely on us to fight for it.
The term false imprisonment can be misleading, as false imprisonment requires only arrest or detention, not necessarily incarceration. Police officers sometimes unlawfully arrest or detain individuals without any justification, which can prove exceedingly humiliating and traumatic. By taking legal action against this abuse of power, you can send a message to law enforcement and the government that false imprisonment is unacceptable.
It is horrifying to imagine that a judge or jury would convict an innocent person wrongfully, but this happens all too often. A wrongful conviction usually accompanies wrongful incarceration, which can bring damages such as lost wages, time away from your family, and pain and suffering. After suffering the loss of your freedom, you deserve to hold the parties who did this to you accountable for their actions.
You deserve better than what the criminal justice system has dealt you. As experienced civil rights lawyers, we can sit down with you to determine whether you have a case for a lawsuit.
