Police Misconduct Attorney
Protecting the Rights of Those Injured by Police Brutality
Police officers are a group of people that we generally place a great amount
of trust in. We expect them to uphold justice, treat civilians with respect
and maintain a safe environment for those that live in their area of jurisdiction.
For the most part, law officers act in an ethical manner and serve citizens
with the protection they need. In some cases, unfortunately they may abuse
the power that has been bestowed upon them, damaging the lives of innocent victims.
Police brutality can leave a person emotionally, physically and financially
scarred. Whether through use of excessive force or performing a wrongful
arrest, a law officer is in the act of exploiting their power. Pursuing
a claim against an officer that has brought harm to you or your loved
one is something that should only be done with the help of a qualified
police brutality lawyer.
The Bowlin Law Firm offers qualified and experienced legal representation for those dealing
with the aftermath of police misconduct. Having been selected for inclusion

What constitutes police brutality?
While many may think purely of physical violence against a suspect as police
misconduct, it comes in many forms. Our Hamblen County police misconduct
lawyers understand that no matter how minimal or severe the brutality,
that justice must be served.
We can advocate on your behalf if you have been the victim of any of the
following actions from a police officer:
- Racial profiling
- Sexual assault
- Strip searching that is unnecessary and debasing
- Physical violence that is unwarranted
- Any form of coercion or blackmail, forcing you into an action you don't
want to take
- False arrest
Knowing that instances of police brutality in Hamblen County are completely
possible, we take aggressive action to protect the rights of those who
have had to suffer through such a horrific experience. Treating each client
