Civil Rights

The Kerns Law Group is a victory-driven civil rights and criminal defense law firm dedicated to protection of civil liberties throughout the nation. Throughout history, many people have suffered due to the denial of access to high quality of legal representation. Kerns Law Group is fighting back by providing individuals and families suffering from police shootings, police brutality, serious injuries and wrongful death with access to our team of highly successful trial attorneys.

The Managing Partner of the Kerns Law Group is attorney Kurt Kerns who is well-regarded for his extensive work as an attorney for over 25 years, obtaining such accolades as Best Lawyers in America, an A rating by Martindale Hubbell, and twice nominated as "Lawyer of the Year." Kerns has taught at Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyer College for over a decade, and in 2010 the Kansas Bar Association honored him with the prestigious "Courageous Attorney Award" for taking on the Federal Government in the nation's first "Genocide" case.

The Kerns Law Group has a team of investigators and experts that immediately mobilize to investigate police shootings and excessive force cases. In order to preserve evidence, obtain video and eyewitness statements, the Kerns Law Group travels to the scene of police shooting and excessive force cases.

If you, a family member or friend, are a victim of abuse by law enforcement or abused by the police and sustained a traumatic injury, the best way to find out if you have a case is to contact our firm for a free and confidential consultation.

If you, a family member or friend, have been injured or had your civil rights violated by the police, it is critical to hire an experienced civil rights law firm. Each legal claim is different so we recommend you contact our firm through this website or via phone. We will evaluate your case and if you become a client of the firm, work with you to resolve the case. We will also come to you for the initial visit if you are unable to travel to our offices.

If you hire our firm, we work on a contingency-fee basis. We do not get paid unless we obtain a favorable verdict or settlement for you.
If there is no recovery on your case, there is NO FEE.
