Aggressive law enforcement methods are a growing problem in New York. If your civil rights were violated, contact us today.

Overturning Wrongful Convictions

Spending time behind bars for a crime you didn’t commit is a great tragedy. If you or a loved one has been wrongly convicted, we can help you file a civil rights lawsuit under the Unjust Conviction and Imprisonment Act. For people who are ultimately found to be innocent of the charges that put them in prison, New York law provides compensation for each year spend behind bars. We help the wrongfully convicted get justice. While we can’t get back the time lost serving a sentence for a crime you didn’t commit, we can help broker freedom and a new life with compensation for the injustice done to you.
