The Q&A forum is not for soliciting attorneys. Search your area, or search civil rights attorneys and contact one or two to ask about your case. At this point, no one knows anything about it except that it is a civil rights case. No attorney worth his salt is going to take a case without reviewing it thoroughly.
You can call your state bar and ask for referral or you can try the avvo ' find a lawyer ' tab.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE. FOR EDUCATION AND INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY IN THIS FORUM. Legal advice comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Mr. Rafter is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the US Federal Courts in Virginia. His answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles--NOT your specific state laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this education exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights. Mr. Rafter is under no obligation to answer subsequent emails or phone calls related to this or any other matter.
The Avvo rules don't let lawyers solicit you. I suggest that you contact a lawyer directly.
The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
Interesting false arrest claims. You should research a few lawyers and interview them. Be prepared to discuss the facts of the case and your relationship with out-going counsel.
