Prison Injury

Violations of prisoners' Eighth Amendment rights are handled by the firm.  Many forms of improper treatment of prisoners, whether by commission or omission, are prohibited by federal and state laws.

If you or a loved one suffered any form of abuse or maltreatment in a federal, state or county prison or jail, you have the right to be heard. You may be able to successfully sue for damages.
