Caring and Competent Representation Across New Mexico

A Police Misconduct Lawyer Serving Santa Fe and All of New Mexico

Law enforcement officers are supposed to uphold the law with the highest level of ethical integrity. They are charged with great responsibility and carry immense power. Unfortunately, all too often, that power is misused. Individual police officers may become overzealous in pursuit of their duties. They may exercise bad judgment or jump to unreasonable conclusions. Sometimes, they act outside the law to pursue their own agendas. When police officers engage in misconduct, the fallout can be far reaching. Devastating injuries or death can result.

Protecting Your Rights

There is no excuse for police misconduct that harms others. If you or a loved one was a victim of such misconduct, you have rights. A path to justice may be available through a federal civil rights claim. You may be able to obtain multiple forms of monetary compensation, including coverage for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Significant punitive damages may also be available in some cases.
