Our attorneys at Spangenberg are committed to protecting the rights of victims, and to seeking the full measure of compensation allowable under the law when those rights are violated.

Handling the Most Extreme Excessive & Unlawful Force Cases
At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP, our Ohio excessive force lawyers provide dedicated representation to clients throughout the state who have been the victims of excessive force by law enforcement officials. These are often extremely complex cases because the law allows for law enforcement officials to use force when appropriate, and a compelling argument must be made in order to prove that the level of force was excessive. Our extensive background with these matters allows us to take a very strategic, results-oriented approach to your case.
We focus this area of our practice on the most egregious excessive force claims where the victim has suffered serious physical injury or has been subjected to particularly cruel abuse by law enforcement officials.
