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.
