Police Misconduct

Defending the Unjustly Accused

Racial profiling, illegal searches and seizures, and physical abuse during police encounters violate our constitutional and human rights. Police misconduct is serious and is often the result of inadequate policies, poor training, or refusal to enforce appropriate discipline. Police officers must refrain from unnecessary force, and should never violate a citizen’s constitutional rights. Illegal search and seizure should never be tolerated.

Innocent citizens can be wrongly accused, arrested and convicted. You have the right to a strong advocate — and attorney Yvonne Kinoshita Ward is known as a strong civil rights advocate, providing smart, tough, experienced legal counsel.
