The Power And Courage To Fight Police Brutality

The police force is supposed to protect innocent civilians. But you experienced something totally different: you were an innocent victim of police brutality. The people who are supposed to protect you instead harmed you, and you wish to seek justice.

The attorneys at Chopra & Nocerino, LLP, can help you. With offices in Manhattan and Garden City, we stand up for clients in Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and Long Island who survived police brutality. With us on your side, we will fight for your rights and seek monetary compensation for your damages from this heinous incident.

What Are Some Examples Of Police Brutality?

Most people think of police brutality as the excessive use of force: body slams, punches, kicks, shooting or beating, for example. But this is merely one type of police brutality. Others include:

  • Verbal abuse
  • Wrongful arrest
  • Unnecessary strip searches
  • Sexual harassment
  • Sexual assault
  • Racial profiling
  • Coercion to do something you do not want to, such as a sex act
  • Blackmail

No one deserves to have their rights violated by a law enforcement officer – even someone who committed an unlawful act.

Stand Up To Fear. Stand Up To The Police.

It can feel terrifying to speak up against the abuse of power. But with Chopra & Nocerino, LLP, on your side, we will protect your rights as we help you hold the police accountable. Standing up to the powerful New York Police Department is never easy, but it is the only way to bring your perpetrators to justice, recover compensation and prevent it from happening again.
