Municipal & Civil Rights Litigation

Our attorneys have represented municipalities, government employees, school districts, police departments and other local government agencies against a wide variety of liability claims. We routinely defend government agencies against premises liability, automobile accident, property damage and related tort claims arising under state law, focusing on the stringent requirements of the Tort Claims Act, and successfully trying these cases to verdict. Claims brought against municipalities and their employees present particular challenges and implicate distinctive areas of the law. We have years of experience representing police officers and municipalities in police liability claims, including claims for false arrest, malicious prosecution, excessive force, and denial of access to the courts. Perez Morris handles every case with a practical, results-oriented approach that balances strong representation with realistic cost containment. Our attorneys work closely with our clients to share the wealth of experience we have in the municipal field, providing alerts, news, and commentary on current issues and developments that could affect them, We would welcome the opportunity to work with you in handling your municipal and civil rights litigation. We are also available to give presentations and conduct training seminars at your location or ours.
