Mr. Neslund has successfully represented hundreds of clients in civil rights lawsuits against police officers for false arrests. If the criminal charges against you were thrown out or you won the case at trial, then you may be able to bring a civil rights claim against the police officers who falsely arrested you. A false arrest can destroy your life as it removes your freedom, disrupts your employment and shatters your relationships. Besides incarceration, facing criminal charges can also cause severe mental and emotional distress, anxiety as well as embarrassment and humiliation.
If you have been arrested when the police did not have a reason to believe you committed a crime, you should be compensated for the police misconduct which led to your unjust arrest and any incarceration. Give us a call at (312) 223-1100 for a consultation.
