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.

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.
Can I Afford An Attorney?
At USAttorneys.com we believe that everyone deserves an equal shot at justice, no matter their race, creed, national origin, financial status – anything. That’s why we work on a contingency fee basis. It costs nothing to hire our law firms, and they get paid only if your case is successful. Their earnings are a percentage of the favorable settlement or jury verdict obtained for you.
