It is the responsibility of authorities to ensure equal treatment of all individuals, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or any other factor.

At Marko Law, our commitment lies in ensuring fair, reliable, and trustworthy law enforcement. By holding officers accountable for unlawful arrests, detentions, and other violations, we send a powerful message that discriminatory behavior will not be tolerated.

Identifying Wrongful or Unlawful Arrests: Do You Have a Case?

When accusing a police officer of unlawful arrest, it is essential to demonstrate that they violated their authority in one of the following ways:

1. Arrest Without Cause: One of the most common claims in false arrest cases is that a police officer violated your Fourth Amendment rights, which protect against unreasonable search and seizure. To arrest you, a police officer must either possess a warrant or have personally witnessed you committing a misdemeanor or felony offense. If we can establish that a police officer lacked reasonable grounds to believe you had committed a crime, that officer is guilty of arresting you without probable cause.

2. Excessive Force: If a police officer inflicts severe harm during the arrest, they are guilty of using excessive force. This charge is not contingent on their intention to arrest you. Even if they had valid reasons to detain you, they are not justified in using any degree of force.

Marko Law possesses a deep understanding of what constitutes probable cause, what level of force is deemed reasonable, and other crucial factors in unlawful arrest cases.

Apprehended Unlawfully Due to Race Discrimination?

Although all Michiganders are theoretically equal under the law, law enforcement officials often consider race as a factor when apprehending, detaining, and prosecuting individuals. At Marko Law, we pay close attention to cases involving racial discrimination. We analyze not only the specific circumstances of your apprehension but also the background and past actions of the police officer involved. If we uncover evidence of discrimination, we will do everything within our power to hold that officer accountable.
