Chicago Police Misconduct Attorneys
Chicago police misconduct can cause serious physical injuries and civil rights violations–and affect you for the rest of your life.
Gregory E. Kulis & Associates, Ltd. represents clients in Chicago and throughout Illinois.
Chicago police misconduct is not restricted to physical abuse and/or injuries. Violating a person’s civil rights, falsifying physical evidence and making false statements can effectively convict you of a crime you did not commit.
We understand that victims of police misconduct may be afraid to come forward and suffer further abuses. However, civil rights laws enable victims to file lawsuits and receive compensation for police misconduct.
Chicago police misconduct and civil rights violations may include:
- Excessive force
- Police-inflicted injuries
- Coerced confessions
- Malicious prosecution
- Illegal search and seizure
- Falsified evidence
- False arrest
- Wrongful death
- Chicago police Taser abuse

Allegations of police misconduct are frequent
Many people believe they were arrested without probable cause. Many people believe their constitutional rights were violated by an illegal search and seizure. There are also people who suffer much more serious forms of law enforcement misconduct.
There are people who are seriously injured or even killed. There are people who are sent to prison for years before someone realizes that a mistake has been made and sets them free. These people truly deserve compensation and justice.
Police Misconduct Comes in Many Forms
