Minneapolis Police Brutality Lawyer—Police Misconduct Lawyer
Very few people would argue that being a police officer is an easy job. While the majority of police officers and other law enforcement agents are faithful public servants who strive to protect and serve the people of Minnesota, some officers go too far in their actions and use excessive force against the citizens of this state. When a citizen experiences police brutality they often do not know where to turn. Some of the many questions I hear from those victimized by the police’s excessive use of force are:
- Will anyone believe my word over a cop’s?
- Will the police retaliate against me, if I draw attention to what they did?
- Does this happen frequently?
- Who can I report this too?
- Who will pay my medical bills related to my injuries?
If you have been wrongfully arrested, illegally profiled, or excessively beaten by a police officer, you have the right to bring a civil rights claim against that officer or police agency for their actions. As a civil rights trial attorney, I have filed and settled cases on behalf of my Minnesotan clients and know how to gather the evidence needed to effectively present your case to a jury.
Federal laws, Minnesota state laws, and local laws protect citizens from employment discrimination, housing discrimination, and harassment because of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, and disability. The Minnesota Human Rights Act goes a step further than federal laws and also protects individuals from discrimination based on their sexual orientation. Sadly, women, many members of the GLBTTQ community, racial minorities, and the disabled still have to confront discrimination on a daily basis.
If you feel that your civil rights have been violated, contact an experienced civil rights attorney immediately. Discrimination can be difficult to prove and a knowledgeable Minnesota civil rights lawyer can help in evaluating your claim, gathering the right evidence, and pursuing your lawsuit.

The Proposed 2012 Minnesota Constitutional Marriage Amendment
Kuhlman Law strongly believes that all individuals in the state of Minnesota should have the right to marry whomever they choose. As such, my law firm proudly supports Minnesotans United for All Families’ efforts to defeat a constitutional amendment that will be placed on the 2012 Minnesota ballot. The proposed amendment to the Minnesota Constitution seeks to deny members of the GLBTTQ community the opportunity to marry the spouse of their own choosing.
