Wrongfully Prosecuted in New York?
Call our NYC civil rights attorneys today!
Wrongful prosecution or “malicious prosecution” usually follows from false arrest or unlawful imprisonment. If you or someone you know was stopped by police without appropriate cause, then you may be able to file a wrongful prosecution case.
Plaintiffs in wrongful prosecution cases must be able to show the following:
- That a criminal proceeding was initiated or continued against the plaintiff
- That the proceeding was terminated in the plaintiff’s favor
- There was no probable cause to justify the proceeding
- The motivation for initiating or continuing the proceeding was actual malice
No Fee Unless We Win
If you contact The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., to handle your wrongful prosecution case, be encouraged that we won’t charge you a fee unless we win your case. Handling civil rights cases on a contingency fee alleviates the financial burden that a wrongful arrest or prosecution can have on an individual and his or her family.
Don’t enter a guilty plea!
If you believe that you were wrongfully accused and prosecution was initiated against you, we strongly encourage you not to accept a plea deal. Agreeing to plead guilty may mean that you do not have grounds to file a wrongful prosecution case.
