Fighting for Civil Rights: Support From A Michigan Discrimination Attorney
The authorities have a responsibility to treat all civilians equally, regardless of race, ethnicity, or any other factor. While the majority of officers uphold this obligation diligently, there are some that often violate the rights of countless citizens while undermining the legitimacy of the policing system. Marko Law is committed to keeping police fair, reliable, and trustworthy. By holding police officers accountable in unlawful arrest, apprehension, and other violation situations, we send a message that discriminatory behaviors will not be tolerated.

Our lawyers are proven experts in this area and have several decades of experience in successfully advocating for the civil rights of their clients.
Examples of Wrongful or Unlawful Arrest
When accusing an officer of unlawful arrest, it is important to demonstrate that they violated their authority in one of the following ways:
- Arrest Without Cause- One of the most prevalent claims in false arrest cases is that the officer violated your Fourth Amendment rights, which protect against unreasonable search and seizure. To arrest you, an officer must either have a warrant or have witnessed you committing a misdemeanor or felony offense. If we can prove that an officer did not have good reason to think you had committed an offense, that police officer is guilty of arresting you without probable cause.
- Excessive Force- If a police officer seriously injured you during the arrest, they are guilty of using excessive force. This charge does not depend on their intention for arresting you. Even if they had good reason to arrest you, they are not justified in using any amount of force to do so.
Marko Law has a clear sense of what constitutes probable cause, what level of force is reasonable, as well as other crucial factors in unlawful arrest cases.
We frequently handle a variety of civil rights actions, involving:
- Unlawful arrest and/or wrongful conviction
- Police misconduct and brutality
- Illegal search and seizures
- Unconstitutional prison conditions
- Hate crimes
- Whistleblower Rights and protection
- Freedom of speech and association violations
- Voter discrimination and illegal elections practices
If you think your civil rights have been violated, we will investigate your case and masterfully advocate or litigate to defend and preserve those rights.
Have You Been Unlawfully Apprehended Because of Discrimination?
While in theory, all Michiganders are equal under the law, in practice, police and other law enforcement officials frequently make race a factor in arresting, detaining, and prosecuting civilians. Marko Law pays close attention to racial discrimination cases. We examine not just the specific circumstances of your apprehension, but also the police officer’s background and previous actions. If we locate evidence of discrimination, we will do everything in our power to hold accountable the police officer in question.
