New York City Police Misconduct Attorneys
Use of excessive force or misconduct by a law enforcement officer can cause serious injuries to the public. Situations where a police officer acts improperly because of fear of personal danger or concerns for maintaining control happen frequently in New York City. If you have been the victim of excessive force or if a family member has been seriously injured due to improper police actions, you may have a claim for monetary damages.
At the Law Offices of David J. Hernandez & Associates our Brooklyn police brutality attorneys have more than 40 years of combined legal experience advocating for the rights of people injured by the negligent or wrongful acts of others, including the police. We are not intimidated by law enforcement.

If you are facing criminal charges, you must be acquitted or found not guilty of the charges before you can file a civil claim against the police department. Do not plead guilty no matter how tempting the plea bargain is until you have consulted with both a criminal defense lawyer and a lawyer experienced in police brutality and misconduct cases. A statute of limitations and the aggressive defense afforded the police department make it critical that you act quickly and consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
We work with clients who have been beaten, shot, harassed, or subjected to other unnecessary use of force at the hands of police officers. We also represent family members of people whose loved ones have been killed by police officers. We closely evaluate your case, investigate the facts, obtain witness testimony and examine the circumstances to determine if you may also have a claim of false arrest or false imprisonment.

Hernandez & Associates by calling (718) 522-0009 to discuss your legal options after experiencing police brutality in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, King County, or other surrounding areas.
