It happens every day in New York City. Innocent people are targeted by the police for arrest and imprisonment. Law enforcement uses excessive force and cause injury to the very people they are sworn to protect and serve. Mistakes are not acceptable when they result in an innocent person going to jail or becoming injured. When people become the victims of false arrest, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution and police brutality, they have the right to seek compensation for what has happened to them.
Peter J. Schaffer, a New York Criminal and False Arrest Attorney, has been fighting for justice for his clients for the past 28 years. He understands that even one night in jail can cause significant harm to a human being. Not simply physical or emotional harm, but also the damage to one's reputation. Of course no one should ever be subject to police brutality. Mr. Schaffers goal is to right these wrongs.
Bronx attorney Peter J. Schaffer and lawyers working with him have recovered significant awards for New York False Arrest victims in the State and U.S. District Courts.
