Police Brutality- Civil Rights

Experienced Pennsylvania and New Jersey Police Brutality Injury Attorneys

Injuries Caused by Police Misconduct | False Arrest | False Imprisonment | False Seizure | Section 1983 Claims | Assault | Battery | Malicious Prosecution

Police Brutality - Civil RightsAnytime that you are dealing with law enforcement officials, you can feel intimidated and can allow yourself to be wrongfully treated. A police officer may arrest you on a trumped-up charge simply because you exercised your First Amendment right to freedom of speech. A poorly trained or unqualified law enforcement officer may use unnecessary force, causing your personal injury.

You have a right to be free from the excesses and wrongful acts of police, and you can seek monetary compensation for such misconduct. The lawyer you choose to represent you, though, can make all the difference in the success or failure of your claim.

At Fritz & Bianculli, our attorneys have more than 30 years of collective experience successfully representing personal injury victims, including people who have suffered injury at the hands of law enforcement officials. Before entering private practice, attorney Robyn Goldenberg worked as a public defender and saw the excesses of police and prosecutors.

Our Representation in Cases Involving Police Brutality or Misconduct

We will work with you throughout the legal process, from the initial investigation of your claim through the gathering of evidence, from settlement discussions through trial. We will prepare and file all pleadings and other documents and will be strong advocates for you in all hearings and proceedings.

We handle all types of claims involving police misconduct or police brutality, including claims alleging:

  • False arrest, false seizure or false  imprisonment
  • Assault and/or battery by a police officer
  • Malicious prosecution, including disorderly conduct charges for exercising free speech rights
  • Any use of excessive or unnecessary force
  • Federal Section 1983 claims

Why You Should Consider Fritz & Bianculli

At Fritz & Bianculli, we understand that a personal injury is just that—it’s personal. It can affect nearly every aspect of your life. We approach every case from the human perspective, looking at how it has impacted you as a person. We take the time to really get to know you, to understand what happened, what you suffered and what you have lost. Our goal is always to build a long-term relationship based on trust and open communication. We hope that you will consult us about other legal concerns you may have and that you will feel comfortable contacting us about other matters even after we have resolved your police brutality/misconduct claim.

Don’t convince yourself that you don’t have a claim, even if you have been rejected by another lawyer. Our attorneys are skilled at finding legal responsibility where others have not—many of our largest settlements and verdicts have come in cases where other lawyers turned down the case.
