    Our team at Marocchi Law have successfully represented clients who have been wrongfully detained, so they can reclaim financial loss and gain access to support to heal psychological and physical injuries.

    If you have suffered neglect, assault or abuse in detention you may be eligible to claim compensation for inhumane treatment.
