Law Enforcement and Public Safety Defense

Law enforcement and public safety officials are on the front lines of government-citizen interactions. They are among the first people in any encounter to confront what, for many of us, are our worst nightmares.  When tragedy strikes or danger arises, we rely on law enforcement and public safety officials to run towards the danger, not from it. Whether confronting a natural disaster, a violent criminal, or a medical emergency, the public safety community is called upon as our community's first line of defense. 

These first responders confront a wide range of legal challenges particular to their difficult jobs. These include:

  • Civil rights complaints
  • Excessive force claims against police and correctional officers
  • Medical malpractice accusations
  • Accusations of criminal activity

The Law Enforcement and Public Safety defense team at Sands Anderson has the training, experience, and talent to represent first responders in these and related cases. A sampling of our successful efforts include defense of a wide variety of claims including:

  • Malicious prosecution accusation against an investigating detective
  • Wrongful death accusation against SWAT team member
  • Racial discrimination claim against detective
  • Excessive force claim against police officer

Our team includes a former lead prosecutor, and seasoned white collar and blue collar criminal defense attorneys, top flight litigators, and experienced government lawyers.  Sands Anderson's team understands the special challenges that the law enforcement and public safety community face. We're committed to standing with them, just as they stand for us.
