What Counts As Police Brutality?

If an individual resists arrest, there may be a scuffle. This can lead to minor abrasions and easily treatable injuries. However, in some cases, a police officer may use excessive force that results in serious injury 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 during the arrest process, it is essential that you talk to an experienced lawyer who can carefully defend your case.

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.
