Police Brutality

If an individual resists arrest, there may be a scuffle. This can lead to minor abrasions and easily treated injuries. However, in some cases a police officer may use excessive force which results in serious injury to you and is a violation of your civil rights.

Police brutality is a very real, very present danger in New York City. If you believe that your arresting officer violated your constitutional rights when navigating you through the arrest process, it is essential that you retain an experienced lawyer who will carefully defend your case.

I am attorney Scott G. Cerbin, and I have been working with police brutality and officer misconduct victims for more than 12 years. I understand how overwhelming and frustrating this situation can be for an individual. Many of my clients feel violated on both a physical and emotional level. I am committed to providing you with the confidence you need to move forward as you pursue a brighter, safer future.

It is important to note that a police brutality case will have no bearing on your criminal case. Despite the criminal charge you may face, you have rights that must be respected and upheld under the law. A violation of these rights must be investigated so that the responsible parties are held accountable.
