FROM RIKERS TO THE TOMBS, WE WIN JAIL CASES.

GUARD ASSAULTs

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. 

MEDICAL NEGLECT

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. 

JAIL DEATH

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. 

 

PUNITIVE SOLITARY

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. 

 

AGGRESSIVE, WINNING ADVOCACY.

As experienced federal litigators and former government defense attorneys, we know how to win civil rights cases. 

Baree N. Fett has won multiple jury awards in high-profile cases.

After graduating from the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, Baree began her career representing plaintiffs in employment and disability discrimination cases. 

While working for the City of New York's Law Department in the elite Special Federal Litigation Division, Baree met Gabe Harvis, a Brooklyn Law School graduate who had been appointed Assistant Corporation Counsel by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

At the Law Department, Gabe and Baree won federal jury trials and worked on complex class action and wrongful death cases involving the NYPD and the City Correction Department.

Now working together in private practice, Gabe and Baree focus on representing civil rights plaintiffs in federal lawsuits who seek money damages and institutional reform.
