Many of my clients say that the most important thing about winning their actions against the police claim is knowing that they were justified in pursuing their claim and/ or complaint.
Often they have never been in trouble with the police before and are shocked and disappointed by their treatment at the time of the incident and afterwards.
For this reason, some clients are keen to tell their stories to the press so that they, their friends, and family, can all put the matter to bed, and hopefully serve as a warning to others. They are also keen to let people know that help is out there. All of them have agreed to me using their details.
I will post some of the case reports relating to my clients’ actions against the police together with links to the news stories in the press here. Simply click on the links on this page or hover your cursor over the ‘Case Reports’ tab for links to the articles.
