Victimized by False Arrest or Other Police Misconduct in NYC?
Our respected, Manhattan-based law firm is a strong, proven resource for people harmed by false arrest in New York City. We have taken effective action in situations involving false arrest and other types of police misconduct by filing lawsuits against the City, law enforcement and local and federal prosecutors.
We have successfully represented clients who were falsely accused by the police and arrested for minor and serious criminal charges (e.g., cases involving falsely manufactured evidence in a drug or gun arrest, or wrongfully charged with murder). Because we often see the legal wrong where others do not, we have successfully represented clients throughout the five boroughs who have been turned away by other attorneys.

Honest, Thorough Evaluation of Your Case
Valid police misconduct and brutality cases can arise from a wide range of circumstances. We know the legal and procedural limits — and we can gauge when greater than necessary force has been a factor. Our experience as Police Academy lecturers on subjects including search and seizure and trial preparation can be invaluable for evaluating and investigating what happened to you — and helping you determine whether taking legal action could be worth it for you.
It is sheer reality that some officers frequently cross the line to cause pain or “teach a lesson,” especially if a suspect offers any type of resistance. We also know that the use of greater than necessary force sometimes involves racial bias or other types of discrimination.
