Because of cellphones and viral videos, we now know that many times, what the police report says happened and what actually happened are two different things. Both our community and our judicial system are now more aware that police do sometimes use excessive force when it is not necessary. In fact, not only is it not necessary, it is illegal to do so.
At Mueller Law Firm, we understand the law, the Michigan legal system and the tactics police may use that cause harm. We are here to be your voice – before law enforcement, before the courts and before a community that has had enough.
We cannot undo the wrong, the pain and the fear. What we can do is ensure that your story is told. Serious injuries are only a part of the story and are not always necessary to pursue a case. When we confront law enforcement in the courts, it works to create a record of what happened. This can build an even larger case against a harmful and flawed system of power.
We will work with you every step of the way to seek justice and file a civil lawsuit for monetary damages. Damages can include medical bills, lost income or wages, physical suffering and mental anguish.
Not every case will go to court, and some cases are able to be resolved in pretrial negotiations. When these negotiations are not in your best interests, we can take your case to trial.
We have an established reputation of providing fierce representation for people who have had their civil rights violated by law enforcement and the criminal justice system. For over 25 years, we have fought tenaciously for our clients who have been mistreated, bullied and wrongfully convicted by those in power.
If you or a loved one was harmed by excessive police force, we can help you hold them accountable and seek financial compensation. Located in Novi, Michigan, we serve clients throughout the state.
