- New York Stop and Frisk Lawyer Seeks Cash Settlements for Victims of Unlawful NYPD Action
Press Release provided by Peter J Schaffer on September 16, 2013
LawyerCentral.com, September 16, 2013 — NEW YORK — Thousands of innocent people were targeted by the NYPD for unlawful stop & frisks.For no reason other than the color of one's skin or the language one spoke or the neighborhood they lived in, law enforcement wrongfully stopped men, women and children and subjected them to embarrassing, harassing and illegal searches. Police used excessive force and caused injury to the very people they were sworn to protect and serve.Wrongful arrests led to innocent people going to jail or becoming injured.
When people become the victims of illegal stop & frisks, false arrest, false imprisonment, racial profiling, malicious prosecution and police brutality, they have the right to seek monetary compensation for what has happened to them.
Peter J. Schaffer, a New York false arrest attorney, has been fighting on behalf of his clients for the past 26 years. He is empowered by the recent decision of a Judge in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan recognizing that stop & frisk as practiced by the NYPD was wrong and unconstitutional.
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 and we continue to represent clients wronged by the illegal actions of the NYPD.
If you or a loved one has been arrested after an illegal stop and frisk only to have the case dismissed, DP'd (decline to prosecute), or resolved in your favor as the result of an acquittal after trial, you should immediately contact Peter J. Schaffer at (718) 585-4444 or http://www.false-arrest-new-york.com for a free consultation.
