Officer-Involved Shootings Attorney in Kansas City, Missouri

In our community and across the nation, incidents involving officer-involved shootings evoke profound questions and concerns. These events leave families devastated, individuals harmed, and a community seeking accountability and change. Many communities and organizations have implemented implicit bias training for law enforcement officers as part of their efforts to address these issues. 

My name is John Picerno, and at JPLaw, my primary focus is on championing the rights of individuals and families who have been impacted by excessive force, including officer-involved shootings. As a civil rights attorney, I am deeply committed to providing compassionate, thorough representation that addresses not only the legal challenges these victims face but also supports their emotional and psychological recovery.  

Understanding the enormous effects such incidents can have on the victims and their loved ones, my goal is to facilitate healing and closure for those affected and help them seek justice through the legal system.  

Through personalized attention and dedicated advocacy, I strive to ensure that the voices of the victims and their families are heard, their rights are protected, and meaningful change is pursued to prevent future occurrences.
