Law Enforcement Defense and Litigation

The Theory Behind What We Do

By aggressively defending and winning lawsuits, our attorneys enable law enforcement agencies and officials to perform their official duties without constant fear that a slight misstep or mistaken judgment will subject them to liability. While our attorneys are frequently able to obtain favorable results during the pre-trial phase, they are not afraid to take cases with difficult or troubling facts to trial. They understand the adverse consequences that accompany a settlement. A settlement, often equated with an acknowledgement of wrongdoing, may lend itself to negative public perception and loss of public confidence in the law enforcement agency. A settlement may lead prospective claimants to view the law enforcement agency as an easy target and incentivize them to file lawsuits. A settlement may result in criticism within a law enforcement agency and, most dangerous of all, it may lead an officer to question his or her own judgment.
