There is an increasing number of federal and state claims brought against police officers, municipal board members and government bodies seeking damages for violations of the Federal Constitution.  SG attorneys have defended various police officers, management and all levels of government officials against these claims.  The Firm works to keep costs low, but work aggressively to obtain targeted discovery and when possible to move for dismissal.  Claims brought under Section 1983 can be at times complicated and require detailed understanding of the various federal and state case law. SG attorneys have the necessary experience to defend against these claims.
