Protecting Your Privacy: Wrongful Search and Seizure Cases Legal Support

Did you know that to be searched or frisked, police officers need to have reasonable proof that you committed a crime? Any evidence obtained in an unlawful search and seizure- even if there was illegal evidence found – may not be permissible in court. That means, for instance, if you were found with illegal drugs, but there was not a reasonable motive to search you in the first place, the case could be dropped. You could also make a complaint that you were a victim of a false arrest.

Your unreasonable search and seizure claim

With headquarters in Chicago, the unreasonable search and seizure attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin know the damage and devastation that can be caused when someone’s constitutional rights are violated by those who are supposed to protect and serve.  Our team has experience and success bringing justice to clients in some of the country’s most prolific cases, including being on the legal team representing the family of George Floyd. The attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin know how to navigate these sensitive and often high-profile cases and bring justice to those involved.

National experience and results in unreasonable search and seizure matters

At Romanucci & Blandin, we approach an unreasonable search and seizure claim as a way to provide monetary compensation and hold an individual or institution financially accountable and responsible for the physical and emotional and even economic damages that have occurred. In too many cases, encounters with law enforcement can end tragically. In some cases, the officer(s) involved in police unreasonable search and seizure cases may face criminal charges, but with or without those charges, victims can move forward with civil litigation, to potentially receive financial compensation for what happened.

Our law firm has a team of attorneys and staff with many years of experience in unreasonable search and seizure litigation. Our civil rights and police misconduct legal team includes partners who guide the process and share their deep knowledge of these types of lawsuits. Each client and each situation is different, and your claim is treated with great care and respect as the team investigates what happened and determines the best path to justice for you.

We know exactly what to do to litigate your unreasonable search and seizure case. We will obtain all necessary background information on the officer or officers involved and, if appropriate understand the municipal or organizational history, training or patterns and practices that may have played a role. Holding municipalities accountable for their officers’ conduct under a 42 U.S.C. §1983 Monell claim is an important part of civil rights law and an area our team knows very well. We find the records, interview witnesses, utilize police and medical experts and prepare thoroughly and meticulously for your case. Ultimately, we aim to obtain the maximum compensation possible so that you and your loved ones can move on with your life.

Our results for unreasonable search and seizure cases

The results we have achieved in unreasonable search and seizure cases are a testament to our team’s fierce dedication to clients.

Our work speaks for itself. For example, Romanucci & Blandin filed a class action civil lawsuit in 2015 that was certified by the federal courts in 2021 against the City of Chicago which could have a class size of over two million people. This comes from the Chicago Police Department’s stop-and-frisk policy that was instituted in 2010.
