Civil Rights Law

Missouri Police Brutality Lawyers

Whenever constitutional rights are violated, the victim of those violations may be able to seek compensation, particularly if those violations result in a serious injury. At Whiteaker & Wilson, P.C., our attorneys take action against government entities such as police departments, school districts and other municipalities that have deprived people of their constitutional rights.

Compensation for Victims of Police Misconduct

Police misconduct can come in many forms. One of them is caused by the excessive use of force in the form of tasers, batons, dogs and even guns that are not used in a reasonable manner. Police misconduct can also come in the form of false arrests and illegal searches If you or a loved one has been the victim of police misconduct in any form, our lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Many police misconduct claims are associated with criminal charges. Our law firm will also provide you with criminal defense representation to protect your rights, your freedom and your future. Our goals are to defend you against any criminal charges you face and to get you compensation for any abuse you suffered at the hands of the police.

Going Up Against Major Opponents

Fighting government entities in Springfield and the surrounding Missouri communities is no easy task. However, the decades of experience our lawyers bring to these cases means that we are up to the challenge. We have taken on government entities before, including sheriff's departments, in order to get compensation for people who have been mistreated by law enforcement officers. We are trial lawyers, willing to take these opponents to court if they are unwilling to agree to a settlement that is fair.
