New York Police Misconduct Attorney
Helping New Yorkers Fight Back & Win!
Law enforcement officers are sworn to protect citizens and are often tasked with handling dangerous, life-threatening situations. While most are well-trained and prepared to handle these challenging situations, they sometimes overstep their boundaries and act with more force than necessary in a situation. This includes police officers, highway patrol, prison guards and other law enforcement officials who may be responsible for things like:
- Police brutality.
- False arrest.
- Malicious prosecution.
- Abuse by prison guards.

What To Do If Falsely Arrested?
What to Do When Hurt by Police
The first thing you should do is get the names and identification numbers of any officers involved. Even if they do not admit to hurting you, an investigation could show a pattern of violence. You may also want to keep copies of any documents associated with your case. It could help to have a record of anything that happened leading up to the event, the event itself and the consequences of the police violence. Details count.
Do Not Make These Mistakes
Many New Yorkers understand that the NYPD has authority and power, and that this could create a risk of abuse and violence. However, few have been in the terrifying position of being brutalized by police. Do not provide the police with information they can use against you. Do not post about your injuries on social media — or chat about them online — without the advice of an attorney. Try not to resist, as this could weaken your case.
