Wrongful arrests, wrongful convictions, police brutality, and other civil rights violations happen far too often in New York City. When these things happen, turn to The Perecman Firm to fight for justice. Our goal is to give a voice to the voiceless, to speak for those who wouldn’t be heard otherwise.
New York’s “stop and frisk” practices raise serious concerns for civil rights. It seems that, far too often, these practices are used as a justification for racial profiling and unlawful arrests. You cannot be detained or arrested on the basis of your race, religion, or your looks alone, and yet the New York Civil Liberties Union estimates that innocent New York residents have been the subject of approximately 4 million interrogations and police stops over the past decade.
Wrongful prosecution or “malicious” prosecution as it is sometimes called is a civil action alleging an abuse of process. In other words, The Perecman Firm handles cases in which individuals are being prosecuted without probable cause they committed an offense.
The Perecman Firm has reported on many civil rights abuses in the past. Some of the most recent, high-profile cases include:
