Civil Rights

The police undergo training to learn how to legally interact with the public. However, for a variety of inexcusable reasons, police officers can commit acts that violate the basic civil rights of an individual. When this occurs, it is important that you have an experienced attorney at your side who can help you navigate this complex matter while protecting your rights.

At my firm, Scott G. Cerbin, Esq., PLLC, I have more than a decade of experience working with individuals who have been victims of civil rights violations. These cases involve:

As a trial lawyer, I am dedicated to aggressively defending my clients and taking their cases as far as they need to go in order to obtain an outcome that supports his or her best interests. I begin my case by determining whether or not the person with whom you interacted did indeed violate a statutory right.

Many of my New York clients come to my office with a charge accusing them of resisting arrest, obstruction of governmental administration and disorderly conduct. I will investigate your situation closely to determine whether or not there was a probable cause for your arrest and if the law enforcement official followed protocol according to the law.

This can be a scary situation for my clients. I understand how overwhelming and stressful this may be and I am committed to giving you the attention and care you deserve. I educate my clients on the legal process, using language they will understand in an effort to empower them with the information they need during this difficult time.
