Our Civil Rights Lawyers Explain Your Rights As An American
Representing Clients in New York City and White Plains
Both our Federal and New York State Constitutions as well as statutory and case law provide protections and remedies to recover monetary damages resulting from civil rights violations. The roadway to recovery, however, is very complicated and filled with obstacles. The first obstacle is the requirement that, as a rule, state law claims must be filed within 90 days of accusal–few exceptions apply.
Most of our civil rights clients are referred to us by attorneys who practice criminal law but are not experienced in navigating the civil right litigation maze. Do not learn the hard way; make sure the lawyer you choose is experienced in both state and federal courts.
Two of our last three civil right verdicts in Federal Court have also resulted in an imposition of punitive damages again police departments or officers. Such results are not easily replicated. It takes a law firm with experience and dedication. In these same two cases, our clients, the victims of police abuse, were retired police officers.
