New York Police Brutality Attorney
New York law firm protects your rights against the use of excessive force
The attorneys at the Brooklyn-based law firm Rubenstein & Rynecki have more than 30 years of experience fighting for maximum awards for victims of police brutality cases. The law firm handles police brutality cases in the fields of—
Police are legally allowed to control a situation using the minimal amount of force required, but instances of police brutality involving bodily harm to civilians or inmates are unacceptable and should be reported immediately. Likewise, if officers do not uphold an individual’s civil rights, they are in violation of the law. If you have been the victim of police brutality, contact a police misconduct law firm as soon as possible.
What if You Experience Police Brutality?
If an officer of the law denies you your constitutional rights or is physically aggressive with you, comply with their requests as best as possible. To protect yourself, request restraint and say nothing more. Do not be aggressive in response or give the officer or guard any indication of non-cooperation, as it may be used against you should you decide to pursue legal action. Do your best to remain calm until the ordeal is over. As soon as you are able, contact a lawyer. Traffic stops or any other forms of non-aggravated police contact do not generally warrant the use of physical force. However, in the instance of arrest, detention, or as the result of a pursuit, officers will often use excessive force to show dominance. This is illegal and should be reported. Additionally, if you are subject to racial profiling, sexual misconduct by an officer, or bodily harm, our lawyers will provide you with your best legal solutions. If you or someone you know has been injured in a police brutality case, contact the firm today for a free consultation. No recovery, no fee.
