Phoenix, AZ Civil Rights Lawyer

We count on police officers to make the right decisions to protect us and enforce the law, no matter the situation. Unfortunately, sometimes police officers are too quick to use their guns, and people get hurt or killed. That’s when you might be in need of the Phoenix civil rights lawyers at Phillips Law Group.

This may be an ongoing problem in Phoenix, as the Phoenix Police Department had the highest number of shootings and fatalities among all law enforcement agencies in 2020 and 2021. By the end of August 2021, seven people had been killed by Phoenix police.

Despite protests and significant media coverage of police-involved deaths in recent years, from coverage of George Floyd’s death to the shooting of Breonna Taylor, people around the country have questions about the excessive use of force by law enforcement.

If the police made the wrong decision on the use of force, the victims or their families may have legal options. The Phoenix civil rights lawyers at Phillips Law Group are ready to discuss your situation in a 100 percent free consultation that comes with no obligation to pursue a case.

If a police officer violated you or your loved one’s civil rights, he or she should be held accountable. You could be eligible for compensation for the damages you have suffered.
