Police Brutality Cases in Maryland
Sometimes, people feel an attorney is an unnecessary expense if they have a video or witnesses to support their claims of assault by law enforcement officers.
Victims are usually unaware that Maryland has very strict guidelines that must be followed precisely to avoid dismissal of their police brutality cases. Our attorneys have thorough knowledge of important guidelines and deadlines that will affect your case of police brutality.
The Baltimore police brutality lawyers at Greenberg Law Offices have the knowledge, experience and legal skills that are essential elements for comprehensive representation of victims of police brutality cases.
Excessive Force by Maryland Police Officers and Other Members of Law Enforcement
In the past few years, there have been many high-profile police brutality cases. In 2010, a University of Maryland student was brutally beaten during a Terps victory celebration. Another incident that occurred in 2010 involved an unarmed Iraq war veteran who was shot nine times and killed by an off-duty police officer after they argued about the officer's female companion. In 2008, a SWAT team erroneously kicked in the door of Berwyn Heights Mayor Cheye Calvo and shot his two dogs, one of which was running away.
Other cases of police misconduct that did not receive media attention are no less important.
