Civil Rights / Excessive Force / Police Misconduct

Both the Iowa and federal Constitutions restrict the government’s (including state and federal agencies and state universities, counties, cities, and public schools) power to detain, search, arrest, or use force against individuals, and prohibit the government from violating your freedoms of speech, expression, and religion, among others.

If any of these rights are violated, individuals may be entitled to damages. We may be able to help if you or a family member have been retaliated against by the government for exercising your rights, if the government illegally arrested or used excessive force against you or a family member, or if the government is interfering with your ability to exercise your rights.
