The lawyers of Sanders & Parks recognize that law enforcement is one of the most important services a public entity can offer. Unfortunately, law enforcement is also a frequent target of litigation. The experienced attorneys at Sanders & Parks have represented many police agencies in matters involving all aspects of law enforcement services. Our team defends the full range of police liability cases, from routine arrests and low-level uses of force, to high-speed pursuits, to high-profile shooting incidents.

Sanders & Parks represents law enforcement personnel and their agencies, including top level command staff as well as jail/correctional staff. We also defend the interests of public and private correctional providers. Sanders & Parks is proud to be a leading defense firm on issues of civil rights based upon alleged violations of 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and other civil rights laws. Defending such claims, including allegations of excessive force, improper police pursuit, unconstitutional policies and procedures, and failure to train, requires not only a deep understanding of the duties of law enforcement and the legal system, but a sense of fairness and confidentiality.

Sanders & Parks has been practicing civil rights litigation for over 45 years. We handle every case with a practical, results-oriented approach that balances strong representation with realistic cost containment. We welcome the opportunity to work with you in handling the defense of a civil rights claim.
