Were Your Civil Rights Violated By The Police?

In our society, the police are granted a tremendous amount of power. Further, most people give them a substantial amount of trust. When accusations of misconduct come to the surface, it is not uncommon for people, including jury members, to give a high degree of deference to their side of the story.

If you or someone you love has had his or her civil rights violated by the police, how do you begin to create accountability?

Our attorneys are former prosecutors with experience serving as assistant district attorneys at the Bronx County District Attorney’s Office and the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office. We know how to build strong cases against the police when they commit:
