Police brutality and excessive force trial attorneys
In recent years, no law firm in Chicago has been more successful in litigating police brutality and police misconduct cases than Loevy & Loevy. In fact, we have litigated more than twice as many excessive-use-of-force cases as any other firm in Chicago, and this experience allows our attorneys to better serve our clients. Our civil rights trial lawyers have secured numerous jury verdicts of more than $1 million for our excessive force clients, as well as scores of police brutality settlements totaling millions of dollars.
If you have been the victim of police brutality in Illinois or anywhere in the nation, it is critical to have an experienced civil rights law firm on your side with the resources to fully pursue your case. For a free initial consultation with a seasoned civil rights lawyer, contact us today.

Recoveries for all damages due to police brutality
We are not simply looking for quick settlements and obvious cases of police brutality and excessive force. Unlike most civil rights law firms, we also take on plenty of meritorious but “small” cases. Just because a person did not suffer broken bones or permanent damage as a result of the brutality, it does not mean their suffering is not worthy of an aggressive pursuit of justice. Sometimes, the worst damages in police brutality cases are emotional. These cases may not result in as many lucrative settlements or verdicts, but they are still an important part of our philosophy to right wrongs and make sure justice is served.
Representation beyond Chicago
Many of our cases are against the City of Chicago, but we also handle significant cases throughout Illinois and around the nation.
Take Action Today
If you have been the victim of police brutality, regardless of where you are, call 312-243-5900, toll-free 888-644-6459 or contact us online to arrange a free initial consultation.
