To my lawyer colleagues–I’m seeking counsel for a client in a civil rights/Taser abuse action now pending in U.S. Dist. Ct. for the Northern District of Illinois. Most of the following is in the plaintiff’s own words, to convey factual details and the intensity of his experience more accurately. If you are interested in pursuing this representation, please contact me by e-mail right away. Thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org
“I am seeking counsel for a client in the Northern District of
Illinois. The Plaintiff is suing a local suburban police department -
with a systemic pattern of civil rights violations - for violation of
his civil rights under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, resulting from excessive and
brutal acts of violence being committed against him while he was
handcuffed and lying on the ground (i.e., kicks to the face and tasers
“Specifically, police officers shot the plaintiff with multiple
hand-held Taser weapons (for several minutes) while the Plaintiff was
handcuffed. At no time did the Plaintiff offer any physical resistance
to any of the officers. Prior to the encounter with the police officers,
the Plaintiff had visited the home of his estranged wife in order to
deliver a birthday present and card for his then 9-year-old daughter.
While delivering a birthday present to his daughter, the Plaintiff was
subjected to unprovoked threats from his father-in-law - who resides
with the Plaintiff’s estranged wife and (now) 11-year old daughter.
“Although the Plaintiff was on the receiving-end of unprovoked
threats by father-in-law at his daughter’s home, the plaintiff left the
home peacefully. While returning home (via walking), the plaintiff was
subjected to a false arrest and the above-described acts of violence.”

I have been doing some roadwork and trying to be consistent with that. Mostly, I've been lawyering, writing, and hustling to get more business so I can do more lawyering. How are you, my friendly readers, doing? I hope you're enjoying your summer (or winter in the southern hemisphere)?
