Law enforcement officers sometimes misuse or abuse their authority. In many cases, the victims feel powerless and believe that there is no way of obtaining justice. Victims of police misconduct may feel abandoned by the system that is supposed to protect them.
The White Plains, New York Law Office of Mark A. Siesel has represented many clients throughout Westchester County and New York State who have been the victims of police misconduct. Police misconduct is a violation of the rights guaranteed to you by both the New York State and United States constitutions. There are specific state and federal statutes and laws which govern exactly what police officers and other law enforcement officials are permitted to do within the scope of their employment. Having a badge is no license to abuse and mistreat anyone. No person should have to tolerate improper conduct by a police officer.
Our firm has successfully represented clients in numerous claims against municipalities, law enforcement officers, and police agencies that have violated the rights of individuals.
