Police Defense

An important part of our law firm's representation of local governments for more than 50 years has been the defense of claims against local police officers. O'Reilly Rancilio attorneys have developed unique expertise in police training, general orders, governmental immunity, qualified immunity, criminal law, traffic law, excessive force, Fourth Amendment matters, and all other police-related claims, whether constitutional or statutory in nature. We also have extensive experience with defending law enforcement in quasi-judicial proceedings such as investigations by the Michigan Department of Civil Rights.

In addition, our attorneys have created a comprehensive training session for new officers, explaining ordinances, liability issues, training priorities, prosecution precedents, and litigation experiences.

The combined experience of the firm's municipal lawyers in defending law enforcement officials is unparalleled, and the firm is uniquely qualified to serve any and all police-related legal needs that may arise.
