Brookline, Salem and Boston Civil Rights Lawyers

Massachusetts Police Brutality Lawyers

Police officers are responsible for protecting and serving the citizens of Massachusetts. The vast majority of police officers are honest, ethical individuals. However, it takes just one or two rotten police officers to spoil the hard work and reputation of the others. Law enforcement can act in an unlawful manner — by racial profiling, violating an individual's civil rights or acting with excessive force.

If you believe your civil rights have been violated by an officer, or if you have been the victim of police brutality, contact Koufman & Frederick, LLP. We can be reached at 978-745-2212.

Stand Up for Your Rights

The Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) is our state's civil rights agency. MCAD's goal is to eliminate discrimination and advance the civil rights of our citizens. If you have been discriminated against, you can file a complaint with MCAD within certain time constraints. Our attorneys can help you with filing the complaint and with any related issues.

Koufman & Frederick, LLP, is knowledgeable about the types of occurrences that can result in police brutality and civil rights violations. While some of these may involve criminal matters to some extent, others can involve freedom of speech.

For example, Massachusetts has a fairly large population of those who speak out against social injustices. It is not uncommon for college students to exercise their rights to freedom of speech by protesting governmental policy. Causes can range from the environment to war to gay rights.

Have you been a victim of police brutality, or have you suffered a civil rights violation while exercising your freedom of speech? Discrimination can be based upon any of the following:

  • Sex
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientation
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Age
  • Disability

Talk to us today about:

  • Excessive physical force
  • Physical assault
  • Verbal abuse
  • Violent threats
  • False arrests
  • Sexual abuse
