Former police attorney takes on police officers who commit misconduct.
Police officers around the country shoot and kill hundreds of people every year. Former police Attorney Dan Nixa has litigated a number of police shooting cases, including through trial. He understands what it takes to prove that the police acted wrongly.
We specialize in police shooting cases in the Chicagoland area.
When someone is shot by police, the family can sue the police for wrongful death and under the federal civil rights laws. A lawsuit is almost always necessary to get justice. This is because police departments rarely hold their officers accountable and prosecutors routinely look the other way, even when the evidence is clear.
What makes us unique.
We are also a small law firm with big capabilities. We know where to look for evidence including DNA, fingerprints, and bullet trajectories. We have experience working with expert witnesses, who can help explain to the medical and scientific evidence to the jury to prove your case.
The experience to get to the truth in police shooting cases.
As a former police attorney, we are well positioned to anticipate the arguments that the police department will make and use those arguments against them. We work with you and your family one-on-one. You can always reach us. Every aspect of your case will be handled by the firm’s founding attorney. We stay in touch, and getting justice for you is our top priority.
