Advocating for Equality: Assistance from a Discrimination Lawyer in Michigan

It is the duty of law enforcement to treat all individuals fairly and equally, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or any other characteristic. While the majority of police officers fulfill this responsibility with integrity, there are instances where some officers violate the civil rights of citizens, thereby undermining the credibility of the policing system. At Marko Law, we are dedicated to promoting fair, reliable, and trustworthy law enforcement. By holding accountable those officers who engage in unlawful arrests, apprehensions, and other violations, we send a clear message that discriminatory actions will not be tolerated.

Our experienced attorneys are proven experts in this area, with decades of success in advocating for the civil rights of our clients.

Instances of Wrongful or Unlawful Arrest - Do You Have a Potential Case?

When alleging unlawful arrest against a police officer, it is crucial to demonstrate that they exceeded their authority in one of the following ways:

1. Arrest Without Cause: Among the most common claims in false arrest cases is the violation of your Fourth Amendment rights, which protect against unreasonable searches and seizures. For a police officer to apprehend you, they must have a warrant or have witnessed you committing a misdemeanor or felony offense. If we can prove that the officer lacked reasonable grounds to believe you had committed a crime, they can be held accountable for arresting you without probable cause.

2. Excessive Force: If a police officer inflicts serious harm upon you during an apprehension, they are guilty of employing excessive force. This charge is not contingent upon their motive for the arrest. Even if they had a valid reason to detain you, they are not justified in using any level of force to do so.

At Marko Law, we possess a deep understanding of the criteria for establishing probable cause, reasonable use of force, and other critical factors in cases involving unlawful arrests.

We handle a wide range of civil rights actions, including:

- Unlawful arrest and wrongful conviction

- Law enforcement misconduct and brutality

- Unlawful searches and seizures

- Unconstitutional prison conditions

- Hate crimes

- Whistleblower rights and protection

- Violations of freedom of speech and association

- Voter discrimination and unlawful election practices

If you believe your civil rights have been violated, we will thoroughly investigate your claim and skillfully advocate or litigate to defend and uphold your rights.

Unlawfully Detained Due to Discrimination? Seek Our Support.

Although in theory all individuals in Michigan are equal under the law, in practice, law enforcement officials often consider race as a factor in arrests, detentions, and prosecutions. At Marko Law, we pay close attention to claims of racial discrimination. We examine not only the specific circumstances of your detention but also the history and past actions of the officer involved. If we uncover evidence of discrimination, we will do everything within our power to hold that police officer accountable.
