Oppenheimer Firm

Chicago’s Nationally Recognized Civil Rights And Criminal Defense Firm

Advocating For Families Affected By Police Wrongful Death

The pain of losing a loved one to a sudden and avoidable loss can be unbearable, and this pain is compounded when the death is the result of police misconduct like shootings, excessive force, or hate crimes. Law enforcement is meant to protect us, and it can be devastating to learn that they were the source of so much pain and suffering. When a reckless or negligent officer causes a loss of life in your family, you need skilled legal guidance to hold them accountable.

At The Oppenheimer Firm, we are dedicated to fighting for families who are grappling with the wrongful death of a loved one due to civil rights violations. We understand that there is no course of legal action that can replace the loss of a loved one, but we also understand that these claims are about holding liable parties accountable and seeking justice for the violation of civil rights. Additionally, these claims can provide the families of victims with the compensation they need to move forward after their loss.
