Civil Rights and
Police Misconduct Attorney


If you or your loved one have been arrested, searched, profiled, or physically harmed
by police, you may have suffered a violation of your constitutional rights. State and
federal law protect all individuals against unlawful police abuses.

DeGolia Law is at the forefront of civil rights in Colorado. In addition to his extensive
experience in federal court, Attorney Benjamin DeGolia filed one of the first excessive
force lawsuits under Colorado’s 2020 Enhance Law Enforcement Integrity Act and has
become a subject-matter expert on Colorado state constitutional litigation.

Even if you are charged with a crime, you may still have a viable civil rights claim. In
fact, in many cases, police officers will charge an individual with a crime to cover up
their unconstitutional conduct. Schedule a free consultation today to learn whether
you may have a viable civil rights claim.
