New York City False Arrest and
Police Misconduct Lawyers

Police Brutality

Because we place a great deal of trust in police officers to serve and protect our community, it is an extremely terrifying experience when you become a victim of those who we expect to protect us. Police officers are not above the law. Law enforcement may only use the amount of force that is reasonably necessary in a situation. When the force used is excessive and unreasonable, the outcome can be devastating.

Police brutality can result in:

  • Death
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Eye injuries
  • Psychological Trauma
  • Nerve damage
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Lacerations, abrasions, bruising, and swelling

You are entitled to compensation if a police officer has subjected you to excessive or unreasonable force. Police brutality is an unconstitutional crime against our community. The attorneys at the Leventhal Law Group have combined to spend more than one-hundred years in criminal justice and civil rights litigation, gaining the experience necessary to maximize the compensation for victims of police brutality. The Leventhal Law Group will aggressively fight to obtain complete justice for victims of police brutality and to end this horrible abuse of power by obtaining maximum compensation for victims and maximum punishment for the officer.

Malicious Prosecution/Deprivation of
Right to Fair Trial

If criminal charges were filed against you without probable cause, you have been maliciously prosecuted. If a police officer fabricates evidence against you, you have been deprived of your right to a fair trial. Victims who have been maliciously prosecuted or deprived of their right to a fair trial are entitled to compensation for the damages they have suffered. The attorneys at the Leventhal Law Group include former prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys who have combined to spend more than one-hundred years in criminal justice and civil rights litigation, gaining the experience necessary to successfully represent clients who have been subjected to a malicious prosecution or have been deprived of their right to a fair trial.

Malicious prosecution and deprivation of a right to fair trial can result in lengthy imprisonment, severe emotional and psychological damage, as well as injuries to reputation and monetary losses. The attorneys at the Leventhal Law Group will fight to protect your civil rights and to obtain the best results for your case.
