As a civil rights attorney in Chicago, you can imagine that I get calls all the time from people wanting to know if they can sue the police. And I always tell them the same thing. “If your rights have been violated by the police, you don’t have to just take it. You have rights. And holding the government accountable for a wrong inflicted upon a citizen by the police is a right that you should exercise.”

If you’ve been the victim of police abuse, you don’t delay in speaking to an attorney today.
