- Bronx False Arrest Attorney Peter J. Schaffer Recovers Money Awards for Victims of Police Misconduct
Press Release provided by Peter J Schaffer on December 29, 2013
Its a cold, hard fact that in the Bronx and in every other borough of the City of New York people go to jail for crimes that they did not commit. People who have done nothing wrong are stopped and frisked by the police. People are slapped, kicked and puched by officials sworn to "protect and serve" them. What could be worse than being handcuffed, searched, confined into a jail cell, and perhaps subjected to physical force for absolutely no reason? Many of these same people are let out the back door, or have their cases DP'd (decline to prosecute) , dismissed, or terminated favorably after a not guilty verdict. When you have been the victim of a false arrest or police brutality in New York you have the right to seek money damages against the City and against the police officers who arrested you. Peter J. Schaffer, Attorney at Law does not like it when his clients are arrested without cause and held in jail only to have their criminal cases dismissed. Like anyone, he deplores police brutality. But Mr. Schaffer does not get mad, he gets even. Attorneys working with Mr. Schaffer over the past several years have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlements for clients who were falsely arrested and held in jail. While not every dismissal results in a successful false arrest case, Mr. Schaffer offers free professional consultation. You will know if you may be entitled to financial compensation for your loss of liberty. If you or a loved one has been the victim of false arrest or the use of excessive force by law enforcement, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries and losses.
