Civil Rights Law

CIVIL RIGHTS CASES

The police officers of the State of New York and officers that work for The Department of Corrections are absolutely necessary to keep order and safety in the various communities and jails in the State of New York. Unfortunately, there are times when police officers and correctional officers, misuse and/or abuse their power against the very people they are trusted to keep safe. When this occurs, many times the victim of that misuse or abuse of power have had their civil rights violated.

Civil Rights cases come in many different forms, such as;

  • Police brutality
  • False arrest
  • Wrongful incarceration
  • Malicious Prosecution
  • Unwarranted Strip Searches
  • Corrections Officer Brutality
