Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C. is honored to join national civil rights attorney Ben Crump in representing the family of Jacob Blake, the man who was shot in the back several times by Kenosha Police on the evening of August 23, 2020. The video of this horrible shooting has since gone viral nationwide.
Miraculously, Jacob survived the shooting. The bullets caused injury to his internal organs and spine. Jacob has a very long road to recovery and may very well have suffered permanent injury.
“Jacob’s family wants very much for this tragic incident to result in positive change. The family and their representatives will fight for systemic change in policing in the hope that this will never happen again. They will also seek to hold accountable those responsible for Jacob’s injuries. With a lifetime of medical needs ahead, Jacob will need resources to maximize his physical recovery. Jacob and his family need to be the last to feel this way. Police training and procedures must change,” Patrick A. Salvi II said in a statement.
The Blake family’s legal team includes Ben Crump Law as lead counsel, and Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C. and the LaMarr Law Firm as co-counsels.
