Seeking justice for illegal searches and seizures in Illinois

“The right of the people to be secure … against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause…”

The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution protects citizens against unlawful searches and seizures as well as police brutality. If your home, car or other property has been illegally searched and you are facing a charge based on evidence gathered in that search, you need an experienced civil rights trial lawyer on your side.

At the law firm of Loevy & Loevy in Chicago, we are leaders in the field of civil rights law, with one of our main focuses being protecting people against illegal searches and seizures. In this new era of the Patriot Act, this has become even more important. Although cases involving unlawful searches and seizures can be very difficult to win and take hundreds, even thousands, of attorney hours to properly execute, we’ve achieved success in this area (see our Big Wins page for details).

Take Action Today
