The Civil Rights Attorneys and Police Brutality Lawyers of Newton Barth Know Police Law

Who will police the police?

Civil rights violations and instances of police brutality can shatter the all-important trust between citizens and government, a trust essential to building and maintaining safe communities. When police step over the line by discriminating and abusing citizens based on race, gender, background, or any other trait, they must be held accountable for the good of the individual victim and the community as a whole.

What Can You Expect from the Police Brutality Lawyers of Newton Barth?

The Attorneys of Newton Barth have an insider’s knowledge of police law, procedures and protocols. Our attorneys are former police union attorneys for three local unions and founding partner Talmage Newton is a former hearing officer for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. Newton Barth attorneys believe every police officer must be committed to the highest professional standards and to protecting the rights – including the civil rights – of every citizen.

What type of Civil Rights and Police Misconduct Cases Does Newton Barth Handle?

That commitment by our civil rights attorneys comes to life in their significant experience and exceptional knowledge of the laws addressing police misconduct:

  • Police brutality
  • Use of excessive force
  • Failure to provide medical care to prisoners
  • Wrongful and false imprisonment

Regardless of your background, you deserve to be treated fairly. Police brutality cases can arise unexpectedly, as part of a routine traffic stop, catching victims off-guard and unprepared to stand up for themselves. In addition, civil rights cases centered around police misconduct can be extremely complex, which means it is crucial that victims secure experienced attorneys with an established history of developing the most effective legal strategy possible in these cases.
