Detroit Police Misconduct Attorney
When those vowing to “serve and protect” use excessive force and unjustly deny you your freedom, you need immediate representation from an attorney whose civil rights practice encompasses the entire nation. At Akeel & Valentine, PLC, we assert the civil rights of our clients with an aggressive approach to secure justice on their behalf.
Police misconduct is a violation of your civil rights and can take various forms, including:
- Police brutality or excessive force, including the misuse of Tasers
- False imprisonment or false arrest
- Malicious prosecution
- Criminal charges without validity
- Municipal negligence, including assault
- Other civil rights and human rights abuses
Aggressively Taking On Complex Cases Against Powerful Entities
Attorney Shereef Akeel’s practice is not limited to Detroit or the state of Michigan. He is certified to practice before several state and federal courts. He combines his national experience with a foundation of knowledge and an understanding of your rights under the Constitution.
Pursuing a police misconduct claim often involves suing the police department, city entities or the individual officer. Law enforcement and municipalities possess powers, resources and influence. However, our attorneys do not shy away from the complexities and challenges of a police misconduct case.

We strive to keep legal fees competitive and affordable for clients. As a smaller firm, we have the luxury of providing personalized service. Unlike larger law offices, you are a name, not a number of a case file.
