Abuse of Police Power

We Fight To Get You The Settlement You Deserve

In an ideal world, the police would do what they are meant to do – protect and serve. Unfortunately, there are some bad apples. Our local news all too often report events of abuses that crush the spirit of the average America.

While the vast majority of police officers do help their local communities in whatever way they can, there have been far too many incidents that involve officers of the law taking advantage of their power, abusing it and violating the constitutional rights of others.

All of the following are considered an abuse of power and can often result in bringing a civil lawsuit against the officer or employing City in question:

  • False imprisonment.
  • Arrest without probable cause.
  • The planting of evidence at a crime scene in an attempt to secure a criminal conviction.
  • Unnecessary or excessive use of force when apprehending an alleged offender.
  • The use of cruel and unusual punishment for an alleged offense.
  • Illegal searches, be they personal searches or searches of a property without the correct warrant.
  • The seizure of any property that is not related to the alleged crime or property that is unlawfully seized by the government and not returned.

These abuses of power have to stop, which is where the Law Offices of Matthew Rabban can help. We fight for the rights of those who have had their rights and privileges trampled on by an overzealous police force that often acts in direct violation of the United States Constitution.

If you require representation to bring the fight back to the officers who take advantage of the powers granted to them, call 818-448-5625 to arrange a free consultation with an experienced legal professional.

I am a trial attorney.

I work to protect the rights of the people in our community.

Often I represent the David in the fight against Goliath. Many of my clients have been people injured and who are up against large insurance companies.

Insurance companies only care about one thing – profits. They profit by paying less to injured people.

I fight insurance companies that delay and deny rightful claims.

I can honestly say Matthew is the best Lawyer that I have ever worked with. He has helped me out tremendously and has really helped me out when I was in tough situations with his expertise and knowledge. I would recommend him to anyone because he really takes the time to hear your case. His diligence really pays off. Five stars is not enough for the amazing job he does.”
