WLAD—the Washington Law Against Discrimination also offers legal protection as do other laws such as the Right to Privacy, Trespass, and assault.  Here is a list of scenarios that could lead to you needing to retain a civil rights attorney in Seattle.

WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP MYSELF?


If you ever find yourself in a situation involving police misconduct, here are some of the steps you should take. 


 

  1. Record anything you can at the scene and any aftermath.  Any audio or video may be able to help your case and document what has happened to you.

  2. Get Medical Assistance

  3. Document the Details

  4. File a Complaint

 

These are all steps you can take to handle police misconduct. However, in many cases, it’s necessary to have knowledge of laws and legal procedures.  You will need legal help to take on the police and typically you are also suing the municipality that oversees the police department.  Pursuing your rights on your own is a lot to handle and that’s when the police misconduct lawyers with Haskell for Justice can help.
