Police Excessive Force

Overzealous or poorly trained police officers sometimes cause serious injury and death to innocent citizens by improper use of firearms and other weapons. Victims of police "excessive force" cases can face a difficult time obtaining justice, due to complex laws that provide many escape hatches for police departments and their employees.
 
We have major experience representing victims of police excessive force, including the recent trial of Jackson v. Prince George's County, Maryland, involving the shooting of a Howard University student, Prince Jones Jr., by an undercover Prince George's police officer.
 
We represented the young man's daughter, who was awarded $2.7 million by a jury in January 2006, after a legal battle that lasted nearly five years. A settlement with the county after the trial was subsequently approved by an appeals court in Maryland.
