What is Police Brutality?

Police brutality is use of excessive force resulting in catastrophic personal injury or wrongful death to the person being arrested.

Police brutality can manifest in several ways, including:

  • Threats
  • Intimidation
  • Acts of physical violence
  • High speed chases
  • Shooting
  • Unjustifiable force
  • False arrests
  • Police misconduct
  • Civil rights violations

The lawyers at The Cochran Firm DC are proud to represent victims of police abuse. Law enforcement officers are not above the law. When they use excessive or unjustifiable tactics, they must be held accountable and made responsible for any damages that result from their behavior.

A Proud Tradition of Protecting Citizens

The Cochran Firm was founded by Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. on the principle that ordinary citizens deserved aggressive and tireless representation. Mr. Cochran had a vision that his law firm would both seek justice for victims of powerful organizations and seek real reform in legal code. As such, all 25 branches of The Cochran Firm have skilled, dedicated attorneys who focus exclusively on a select number of the most serious cases and who relentlessly battle powerful wrongdoers on behalf of everyday people.

The attorneys at The Cochran Firm DC are honored to carry on Mr. Cochran’s legacy. We seek not only to get you the maximum compensation you are due in these cases but – in some cases – to set precedent for stricter regulations against abuses of power.

We are entirely devoted to the rights of victims.

If you were seriously injured from police brutality or abuse in Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia or Maryland, please contact the experienced police brutality attorneys at The Cochran Firm DC to schedule a free consultation.
