At my law firm, I represent clients who have been the victims of aggressive actions by law enforcement personnel. Police and prosecutors in New York make decisions that frequently place a person into a situation where his or her constitutional rights are violated.
The best way to protect your rights if the police have illegally detained you or abused you physically is to get a lawyer. As your attorney, I can help you fight back to protect your rights. We can make a difference, and hold bad actors responsible for their conduct, but in order to do that, you have to take the first step.
This is an area of the law that I am extremely passionate about. The cases that I handle here make a difference. We are able to actively seek positive changes that benefit the entire community, and make things better for everyone.
Even though I enjoy these cases a great deal, they are extremely hard to win. Law enforcement does not like to see their methods challenged, and will put up a pretty substantial fight against those who file a lawsuit against them. Your attorney needs to know how to overcome these obstacles, and present a compelling case in order to help you obtain justice.
I have prior experience representing clients in a number of these types of cases, including:
I know that you may simply want to put this ordeal in the past. The last thing you want to do is to create more trouble for yourself or your family. But, your rights are important. I will do everything I can to protect them throughout your case.
I am very selective about the cases that I handle, but I would like to talk to you if you think you may have a claim. Please call my office at 212-334-7398 or send me an email using my contact form to schedule your free phone consultation.
