Abuse of Power & Corruption

Defined as “the misuse of a position of power to take unjust advantage of individuals, organizations, or governments,” abuses of power have threatened the integrity of our democracy since its inception. The American spirit requires us to equal the playing field by fighting back, and holding people accountable under the “rule of law.”

Our firm is honored to participate in this area of law. Congress and the Courts have provided every day citizens with a significant framework of State and Federal Laws that are designed to hold people who have abused their position of power to account.

Some examples of practice areas include (but are not limited to):

1. Sexual assault and abuse;

2. Police misconduct;

3. Invasion of privacy;

4. Breach of contract;

5. Discrimination;

6. Unlawful pollution;

7. Violations of due process;

8. Anti-competition business practices;

9. Whistleblower retaliation;

10. Witness intimidation;

11. Gross or willful negligence which causes injury.

Abuse of power can show itself in many different ways. It could be an individual, such as a family member, or a friend. Or it could be someone in a position of public authority, such as a boss, a manager, a police officer, or an elected official. If you or a loved one find yourself in a position where someone is leveraging a position of authority for improper purposes, please give us a call.
