We Can Help If Police Mistreat You

New York City police are often referred to as New York’s Finest. The large majority of police officers serving the five boroughs and surrounding communities are well trained and conscientious about doing a great job serving the public. Unfortunately, the stress of the job often makes some police officers incapable of handling a disturbance or arrest without resorting to unnecessary physical force.

If you were subject to police brutality, false arrest, malicious prosecution or wrongful detainment, you have the right to seek monetary compensation from your local municipality. Call COHEN & COHEN PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS, P.C., to discuss the circumstances of your civil litigation matter. Attorney Albert Cohen leads a team of experienced lawyers who have recovered millions of dollars in monetary damages in civil litigation and personal injury claims on behalf of people who have had their rights violated.

From our offices in Forest Hills, our firm represents plaintiffs in civil litigation cases in Queens and throughout the New York City metropolitan area. Contact us to schedule a free case evaluation with a Queens police brutality attorney today.

A Note To Parents And Family Members Of People With Emotional Disabilities

When called to the scene of a disturbance, police often fail to take into account mental or emotional illness as a component of the behavior. Too often, police are quick to ignore the rights of the mentally ill or neuro-atypical individual and handle the matter with unnecessary physical force or make an arrest when it is unnecessary. If you are the parent or loved one of a person with a mental illness or disability who has suffered police misconduct, call us for help. We have significant experience in this unique area of civil litigation and work with discretion and confidentiality.

We fight for more — and help you keep more.
We offer the advantage of helping our clients keep more of their settlement and jury awards. Through skillful application of New York and federal trust laws, we can help you reduce liens and preserve your assets for lifelong needs.
