Shopping & Store False Arrest

Often, when people hear of false arrest, they think of a police officer arresting someone without probable cause. But every day, security guards and corporate employees arrest hundreds of people. People have a Constitutional right to shop in places of public accommodation.

We're in Your Corner

Many of these arrests are unfounded. Our attorneys have handled numerous false arrest cases against groceries, retail stores, malls, and other establishments. Often, rent-a-cops are poorly trained, act out of emotion, and violate individuals’ rights.

We’ve represented people who have been chained to walls by private security, separated from their children for hours, and illegally transported across state lines. In the course of making the arrests, sometimes these private security officers have also injured our clients.

Our firm has represented more individuals against private security companies in litigation than any other firm in Oregon.
