Police Misconduct Attorney / Lawyer based out of Portland, Oregon
I, Jennie Clark, Attorney at Law, based out of Portland, Oregon handle the following types of cases:
I prefer cases in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington Counties. However, I will consider cases in all of Oregon, which involve a wrongful arrest or the excessive use of force. Although I am a member of the Washington State Bar, I do not accept police misconduct cases in Washington State, as I am not yet a member of the Washington federal bar.
Above and below is a photo of me in front of the courthouse near my law school, University of California, Hastings, where I first attended a police misconduct demonstration in San Francisco. After working to help with police misconduct cases while in law school, I decided to add this area of law to my Oregon practice. During my first year of law school, I spent a day interviewing hundreds of high school students who had been brutalized by the police. The evidence was disturbing and the many of the students were credible, honor role kids. I realized that if police officers will brutalize school children, regardless of gender or skin color, that nobody is safe and that addressing police abuse is essential to protecting any democracy in the world and the safety of all of us.
