Verdicts And Settlements

Civil Rights And Employment

When your civil rights are violated, it’s easy to feel like there’s no hope for justice. Since 1995, we have been proving that there is. Employment discrimination and other civil rights violations are some of the core injustices we have made it our mission to rectify.

Featured Story: Black Man Assaulted by Circleville Police Officers

$2,700,000 settlement for African-American man injured by white police officers’ excessive force.

Following a routine traffic stop, our client was taken to the Circleville Police Station, where police officers mistakenly believed he was the subject of an outstanding warrant. At the station, Circleville officers threw him to the ground, damaging his spinal cord and causing permanent physical injuries. We achieved precedent-setting decisions in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals before Circleville elected to settle the case.
