Civil Rights/Police Brutality

When the police fall short of their basic duties or commit acts of brutality, victims are unsure where to turn. Police departments in New York and throughout the country are powerful entities with resources. Officers also enjoy a brotherhood where they protect each other in good times and bad.

If you have been a victim of abuse or civil rights violations, turn to Arnold J. Levine, a criminal defense attorney who peer lawyers consider the go-to guy.

Police Brutality Is A Serious Legal Matter

First, know that you are not alone. Tragically, thousands of police complaints are filed every year. Cases involving acts of force and violations of civil rights violations are complex with specific laws governing these actions. Time is of the essence in securing representation and filing a legal complaint.

Misconduct by law enforcement can take many forms and includes:

  • False arrest
  • Excessive force
  • Assaults following traffic stops, arrests and pursuits
  • Injuries suffered while incarcerated
  • Wrongful imprisonment
  • Abuse of authority

Pursuing The Justice You Deserve

While physical injuries are a common outcome from police brutality, the psychological damage of these acts can be equally painful. Cases combine legal complexities with emotionally-charged matters. Justice comes in many forms when it comes to criminal acts, regardless of the perpetrator and their power.

In cases involving police harassment, discrimination, false arrest and brutality, fair financial compensation can provide the justice you deserve. No amount of money can undo the damage done. However, it can send a strong message to law enforcement.
