Representing the Victims of Police Misconduct

Were your rights violated by the police, the very agency that was supposed to protect your rights? We are proud to offer representation to those who have been victimized by police misconduct. When Attorney Benavides worked as in-house trial legal counsel for the Chicago Police Department, he defended police officers in cases involving police misconduct.

This experience gave him a unique understanding of the different methods used by the police to abuse their power, including sexual assault, the use of excessive force, false arrests, and the fabrication of evidence against an innocent person. If you feel as if you've been victimized as a result of deplorable acts committed by the police, we can help protect your rights.
