Wrongful Prosecution in New York

Wrongful prosecution, also known as malicious prosecution happens when the prosecution abuses the process of law and proceeds to take you or someone you love to court without probable cause. If you are the victim of wrongful prosecution, you may be able to recover civil damages as a result. If you think your rights have been violated, schedule a free consultation with our experienced New York civil rights attorneys and let our experience work for you.


Wrongful prosecution typically is going to require that the charges that had been pending against an individual get dismissed. Having the right attorney to know how to navigate the potential pitfalls in that area and to ultimately secure a dismissal of all charges is essential. Again, without a dismissal of the charges, wrongful prosecution is almost an impossible claim to make out. So having an attorney that’s willing to fight for you as opposed to just getting the best deal possible is crucial. And here at our firm, that’s what we do every day for our clients.

Wrongful prosecution can include harassment, purposely damaging the defendants reputation, or knowingly placing blame on someone other than the actual wrongdoer.
