We have successfully litigated many cases involving inmates subjected to excessive force inside the City's jails, with injuries as serious as perforated eardrums and facial fractures. We hold the guards accountable and obtain fair compensation for our clients.
In many cases, injured prisoners are not immediately provided medical treatment. When the injuries are serious, such mistreatment can violate the U.S. Constitution. Our firm challenges this abuse by bringing individual damages actions in federal court.
FAILURE TO PROTECT
Correction officers take an oath to protect the inmates under their watch. Yet we see time and again officers standing by or encouraging violence between inmates. We take these cases very seriously, and consider them a vital part of our efforts to reform the jail system.
If a loved one has died in jail, it is important to act quickly to obtain quality representation. Rely on our experience to understand the process and help you every step of the way, from surrogate's court to filing for wrongful death and related claims. We are here for you.
Under the law, a prisoner cannot be placed in solitary confinement --also known as CPSU or the box -- except in very specific circumstances. When jail officials unlawfully impose solitary confinement on our clients, we fight back in the courts.
