Police Brutality Lawyers NYC

Aggressively Fighting Against Civil Rights Violations in Westchester & Surrounding Areas

When a cop pulls you over or talks to you on the street, you may get the feeling that you are obligated to do as they say, no matter what. You may even be in fear due to the well-known national stories regarding recent cases of police brutality. While many police officers respect the law and do an excellent job of upholding it, there are some cases when they do quite the opposite. If you or a loved one have been a victim of police brutality, Portale Randazzo LLP is here to help.

Please contact one of our White Plains police brutality lawyers at (914) 292-3557 to discuss the details of your case.

Defense Against Incidents of Excessive Force

In certain cases, law enforcement is allowed and expected to use force to defend themselves, such as if a person who is under arrest is trying to flee the scene. Police brutality, however, occurs when a police officer uses excessive force to hurt a civilian unnecessarily, which is a form of police misconduct. Our knowledgeable civil litigation team is committed to pursuing justice on behalf of people like yourself who have been victimized by illegal police behavior.

Police brutality can occur in a number of different ways, such as:

  • Physical force beyond what is necessary
  • Verbal attacks/psychological intimidation
  • Unnecessary use of weapons or guns
  • Physical beatings with a baton, fist, or weapons
  • Inappropriate use of a police dog
  • Body slamming, choking, or kicking
  • Sexual assault or inappropriate sexual conduct
