Locke Law, P.A. represents victims of civil rights violations. These civil rights cases are typically pursued in federal court, although there are occasions where it makes more sense to file suit in state court and pursue state law claims. The claims stemming from these civil rights violations include false arrest, excessive use of force, malicious prosecution, failure to intervene, etc.
Our approach to pursuing these civil rights claims is simple -- build the case prior to initiating the lawsuit. Prior to filing suit, Locke Law, P.A. gathers an extensive amount of background information, including identifying and interviewing witnesses, enabling Locke Law, P.A. to have enough evidence to maintain viable claims at the onset.
