New York Police Misconduct Lawyers
Exposing Civil Rights Violations by Law Enforcement Personnel
At Barket Epstein Kearon Aldea & LoTurco, LLP, our New York police misconduct attorneys are leaders in the movement to expose wrongdoing by law enforcement personnel. With roots in criminal law and a team that includes former judges and prosecutors, Barket Epstein is positioned to deliver highly effective legal counsel in these complex, sensitive matters.
Law enforcement officers are given the authority to restrict liberty and even injure or kill another—in incredibly limited and specific circumstances. These circumstances must fall within the bounds of the U.S. Constitution, relevant federal and state laws, and law enforcement procedures and policies. With so many factors at play, it can be exceedingly difficult to ascertain the difference between a police officer acting within the bounds of this power to protect and serve and an officer violating a civilian’s rights. It is not difficult to ascertain, however, the serious impact that such violations can have on a victim and his or her family, leading to serious injuries, lasting emotional trauma, and even wrongful death.
To learn more about police misconduct and your right to justice, call (888) 779-0267. Your consultation is free and confidential.
