Police Brutality Cases in New York

Police brutality cases are on the rise across the country and we can help you effectively pursue the justice and maximum compensation you deserve if the police violated your civil rights or the rights of someone you love. Our civil rights attorneys have represented clients in very highly publicized police brutality cases such as the Mafia Cops case where two NYPD detectives were found guilty of committing murder for the mob. We have the experience necessary to win in the most high-profile and challenging cases. Schedule a free consultation today and let our experience work for you.


In situations involving claims of police brutality, the right attorney is going to be able to investigate the claims to make sure that the proper notices are filed with the court in a timely manner. Now, because police forces are parts of municipalities, there is the requirement that a notice of claim be filed within 90 days of any allegation for police brutality. If the notice of claim is not filed within those 90 days, the client risks the inability to be able to file a police brutality claim.

So it is extremely important if you find yourself in a situation like that, to seek legal counsel immediately so that you don’t run afoul of the 90 day period.

Our civil rights 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 law enforcement in police brutality cases.

In police brutality cases, what matters most is results. At The Matera Law Firm, we have over 25 years of experience helping people when they need it most. That commitment has allowed us to generate a record of success that includes obtaining millions of dollars for our clients as well as positive results for victims of civil rights violations.
