Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Your Rights Are Our Business

Attorneys for the Fraternal Order of Police in New Jersey

Defending against Police Misconduct Accusations

Police departments and the law officers who serve under them are under an increasing pressure to keep the public safe while simultaneously falling under strict scrutiny and criticism for doing so. Burnham Douglass Attorneys At Law appreciates the role police officers play in our society. Law enforcement keeps our cities and towns safer and protects us and our rights from those who would cause them harm.

Our attorneys believe that no officer who has been involved in a contentious incident of any kind should have the issue pre-decided in the court of public opinion. That’s why we strive to provide the strongest possible representation for police officers in front of their superiors in disciplinary meetings and actual courtrooms should they face criminal charges. When you reach out to one of our attorneys for the Fraternal Order of Police in New Jersey, ask for a free consultation. During this meeting, we can have an opportunity to meet with you and discuss what you’re up against and how services from Burnham Douglass Attorneys At Law may be able to assist you.

Contact our firm online or call (856) 512-1461 to schedule your free initial consultation. We offer availability after normal business hours and weekends with the possibility of a same-day appointment when you reach out.

How We Can Help Law Enforcement Officers

A police officer wears many hats, so to speak, because he or she is called upon to respond to a multitude of society’s problems while upholding the law. There are also numerous obstacles every police officer encounters on a daily basis that can make the difference between life and death for themselves, their partners, and others.

By doing what’s necessary to uphold the law, even the best police officer can face charges and inquiries involving:

  • Police brutality
  • Inappropriate use of force
  • Falsified evidence
  • False arrest
  • Sexual assault
  • Substance abuse while on duty
  • Racial profiling

Any accusation involving these matters and others can at least tarnish an officer’s otherwise stellar reputation, and at worst result in criminal convictions. When you need someone to defend you from minor to major accusations, reach out to Burnham Douglass Attorneys At Law for legal assistance.

Also Assisting Firefighters

Our attorneys for the Fraternal Order of Police in New Jersey can also assist firefighters who face their own unique legal challenges. Just as is the case for a police officer, a firefighter’s job can be rife with nuances and dangers that require you to make difficult decisions or cast an unfavorable light on your performance.

We can offer representation in internal investigations, civil lawsuits, and criminal charges related to:

  • Injuries and death during vehicular collisions
  • Injuries and death occurring during patient care
  • Property damage
  • Critical incidents
