Civil Rights

The civil rights lawyers at Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP are here to represent you. We specialize in cases involving police brutality and excessive force, deprivation of medical care, discrimination, and other cases in which someone was denied his or her civil rights.

Allegations of Police Brutality and Excessive Force

Atlanta’s police force helps keep order, maintain peace, and ensure the safety of all citizens. There are times, however, when an officer oversteps his or her bounds and subjects someone to unlawful treatment. Even if you have broken the law, officers must follow certain protocols, as anyone who is arrested and charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Our law firm has successfully settled a number of seven figure cases against the City of Atlanta in this area, including the Kathryn Johnston shooting case.

Deprivation of Medical Care

Under our laws, incarceration does not eliminate your right to reasonable and adequate medical care. Our law firm has obtained numerous significant recoveries for clients who, while incarcerated, suffered death or serious injury because jail or prison officials, employees or physicians deprived them of necessary medical care.

If you feel you are the victim of any kind of police brutality or discrimination and you’d like to see if you have a case, call Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP at 404-445-1411 or 1-800-688-2357 to schedule your free consultation.
