Ready to Help Victims of Police Brutality Get the Justice They Deserve

The police are meant to protect the community against crime; however, there have been many instances where they are the ones who commit criminal acts against people under their custody. When law enforcement officials commit heinous acts against or inflict violence on members of the community, they must be held accountable for their malice actions.

With more than 150 years of combined experience, our legal team at Grace, Tisdale & Clifton P.A. has been protecting the rights and best interests of clients throughout North Carolina. Our Winston-Salem police brutality lawyers are not afraid to challenge the police and the government in court in order to help our clients obtain the justice and outcome they deserve.

If you or a loved one has recently been the victim of police brutality in North Carolina, contact us today at (336) 515-6552 to learn how we can help you.

What is Police Brutality?

According to Title 42, Section 1983 of the U.S. Code, if a police officer violates your individual civil rights while acting under his/her lawful duty, the officer, his/her department, or even the local government could be held responsible for your damages. Not only could you obtain support from the judicial system and criminally charge the officer who harmed you, but you could also recover financial compensation to pay for all the damages you suffered.

Grace, Tisdale & Clifton P.A. knows that despite being arrested, law enforcement officials are prohibited from acting negligently and using excessive force. Our legal team can listen to your story, review the facts and circumstances of your case, and build an effective and personalized legal strategy to obtain the most favorable outcome in court.

Justice for John Neville

Grace, Tisdale and Clifton P.A. are currently representing the family members of John Neville, who had been arrested on December 1, 2019, and spent a day in jail before he passed away three days later. After seven months of silence from Forsyth County Detention Center and even the State Bureau of Investigation (SIB), involuntary manslaughter charges were finally brought against five detention officers and a nurse on July 8, 2020.

Just like George Floyd and Eric Garnder before him, John uttered the phrase, “I can’t breathe,” multiple times before his untimely death while he was restrained by correctional staff. As protests all over the country have called the end to police brutality and systematic racism engrained in the criminal justice system, our firm remains dedicated to fighting against these injustices.

Ready to Protect Your Rights Immediately

When injuries are caused by the hand of law enforcement official officials, not only do victims suffer significant pain, but they also suffer from the breach of trust, anger, and feeling afraid and vulnerable since they can no longer turn to the law for protection. When this trust is violated, our firm will make the liable parties pay the price to help these victims feel whole again.
