The police are supposed to make us feel safe and secure. Yet, far too often, incidents of police brutality leave people – especially minorities and other vulnerable groups – feeling just the opposite.
The events in Minneapolis and other cities across the country following the death of George Floyd once again illustrate the alarming trend of police violence against the very people they are sworn to protect and serve.
If you or a loved one were the victim of police brutality, Morgan & Morgan’s civil rights attorneys are here for you. We are available around-the-clock, ready to advocate on your behalf for justice and compensation.

How Can an Attorney Help?
It might seem like you’re facing impossible odds as a victim of police brutality. Not only have you had your civil rights violated, but you’re also up against an institution that’s known to protect its own. Many police departments cover up bad acts and deny responsibility. Oftentimes, officers at the scene refuse to hold their fellow officers accountable.
Even so, Morgan & Morgan is uniquely equipped to help you achieve justice and financial restitution. Here’s why:
- We are America’s largest personal injury law firm, which means we have the resources to go to trial, if necessary
- We have hundreds of dedicated attorneys and thousands of team members ready and willing to go the extra mile to achieve a favorable outcome
