San Francisco Police Misconduct Lawyers


A 35 year old woman was shot and killed in her home by the Union City Police Department in the presence of her daughter, father and brother. The City’s investigation cleared the shooting officer of any responsibility. An Alameda County jury disagreed and awarded the family $1.95 million.

Result: $1.9 million jury verdict.

Oakland Attorneys Representing Victims of Police Misconduct and Abuse

Throughout Northern California and beyond, Gwilliam, Ivary, Chiosso, Cavalli & Brewer has been a champion for victims' rights for over 30 years. We have been successful in the representation of clients who have been victims of police misconduct, resulting in wrongful death and serious injuries.

The area of police misconduct necessitates special experience; the law firm has become well-versed with governmental immunities, statutes and claims procedures. We have taken on cases involving police shootings and other situations involving the deprivation of our clients' human rights.

Our experience over the last three decades has shown us that monetary results are only a small part of our job. We strive to help our clients in ways that go well beyond just their immediate legal need, taking a "holistic" approach with each client.

Each of our cases has a team assigned to it that includes one of the firm's partners (someone with 25 to 40 years of trial experience), an associate attorney, a paralegal and a secretary. This ensures that someone who is familiar with your case and knows you will almost always be available to respond to your needs and answer your questions promptly.
