Oppenheimer Firm

Chicago’s Nationally Recognized Civil Rights And Criminal Defense Firm

A National Leader In Holding Police Accountable After Shootings

There is a common perception that police answer to no one. People often feel police officers are shielded against criminal charges and are free to use their badges to execute their personal prejudices.

At The Oppenheimer Firm, we hold police officers responsible for their illegal acts. If a police officer has used excessive force or shot a suspect without cause or provocation, we can help. Located in Chicago, our firm has guided clients throughout the country in obtaining compensation after being injured or losing a loved one because a police officer failed to abide by the law – with tragic consequences.

Your Attorney Matters. Go With The Law Firm With Proven Results.

Going up against the police force is hard. Even when the evidence is clear, police officers often walk free. The only way to hold the police responsible is to work with civil rights attorneys who have the skill and experience to navigate this complex and emotionally charged area of the law.

Police officers are only allowed to use minimal force to make an arrest. Unless they feel their lives are in danger, shooting a suspect is illegal. Our team of investigators and forensic scientists can help establish exactly what happened. Our founder, attorney Michael Oppenheimer, has been named one of the Top 100 litigators in the country by The National Trial Lawyers for a reason. He knows how to win for our clients.

Attorney Oppenheimer builds strong legal claims that the police acted beyond the bounds of the law, then pursues compensation for the pain, suffering and emotional loss caused by the shooting.
