A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
During the historic 2020 protests, Elise Poole attended a peaceful protest in Lincoln to demand an end to police brutality against Black lives. Law enforcement met that protest with a militarized response. Poole was physically and emotionally traumatized when a projectile struck her and severed her nose from her face while she was providing first aid to injured protesters. In April of 2022, we successfully settled the case with the City of Lincoln in an agreement that provided Poole with monetary damages.
