Freehold Excessive Force Lawyer


Police are commonly in a position where the use of force is necessary to detain a suspected criminal. From grabbing a suspect to the use of mace or batons, police use a wide range of tactics to apprehend and subdue people. However, in too many of these situations, problem officers use unnecessary levels of violence. At the Law Office of Mallon and Tranger, we are committed to representing people who have suffered injuries as a result of the excessive use of force.

Protecting Our Clients Rights

Back talking to a police officer, threats of lawsuits, and even threats of violence should not result in the increased use of force. Neither should the guilt or innocence of a suspect. Our firm has a strong belief that police officers that use excessive force and police departments that condone their behavior need to be held liable for their actions in order to protect public safety.

Our attorneys aggressively pursue excessive force claims. We seek out witness statements; subpoena squad car video and audio recordings, as well as video from any security cameras in the area; and depose all officers involved in the incident, including those on the scene that did not file report.

We are prepared to handle any legitimate excessive force claim, including those involving:

  • Severe beatings with fists or batons
  • The use of chemical agents such as mace or Cap-Stun on subdued or compliant suspects
  • The use of Tasers on subdued or compliant suspects
  • Injuries that result in hospitalization
  • Incidents involving choke holds that cause unconsciousness
  • Any incidents that result in the death of suspect
  • Fatal shootings
