Spence Law Firm Civil Rights Lawyers in the News

We recently settled a civil rights wrongful death case in Waterloo, Iowa, for Derick Ambrose’s family. In 2012, a Waterloo, Iowa police officer shot and killed 22-year-old Derick Ambrose. He was unarmed. And black. This week Derick’s father, Derrick Ambrose Sr., authored an op-ed article in the Huffington Post, “Pursuing Justice for My Son, Another Unarmed Black Man Killed by Police.” In this powerful piece, Derick Sr. reveals: “The lawsuit settlement, believed to be the largest in Iowa history for a police shooting, will not bring back my son, but it may raise awareness of what is wrong with law enforcement in Iowa and around the nation. I hope Derrick’s death can be a catalyst for change in Waterloo and other American cities.”

We are proud of the work our team, including Mel Orchard, Noah Drew, and others, along with our Iowa co-counsel Tom Frerichs, were able to do to fight for justice for the Ambrose family. And we are proud to continue to work to fight for other families like Derick’s, across the country. To read more of Derrick Sr.’s story, click here.
