“The arc of history bends towards justice” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We represent clients whose civil rights have been violated. These rights are enumerated in the Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, the New York State Constitution, Civil Rights Acts and elsewhere. For example, wrongful arrest by a police officer or unreasonable search and seizure may be a violation of ones constitutionally guaranteed civil rights and the basis for a lawsuit against government agencies and/or government officials. A lawsuit against the government may serve different purposes: On the one hand, it is a tool for collecting damages and costs from the government. On the other hand, and no less important, it can lead to significant changes in government policies and behavior.
