HAVE YOU BEEN THE VICTIM OF A FALSE ARREST? HAVE YOU BEEN THE VICTIM OF POLICE BRUTALITY? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you need to speak to an experienced New York False Arrest Lawyer immediately.

PETER J. SCHAFFER, Attorney at Law (718) 585-4444 devotes his practice to New York State criminal defense, the defense of all federal criminal cases, and representing victims of false arrest and police brutality.

Its a cold, hard fact that in the Bronx and in every other borough of the City of New York people go to jail for crimes that they did not commit. People who have done nothing wrong are stopped and frisked by the police. People are slapped, kicked and punched by officials sworn to "protect and serve" them. What could be worse than being handcuffed, searched, confined into a jail cell, and perhaps subjected to physical force for absolutely no reason?

Many of these same people are let out the back door, or have their cases DP'd (decline to prosecute) , dismissed, or terminated favorably after a not guilty verdict. When you have been the victim of a false arrest or police brutality in New York you have the right to seek money damages against the City and against the police officers who arrested you.

Peter J. Schaffer, Attorney at Law does not like it when his clients are arrested without cause and held in jail only to have their criminal cases dismissed. Like anyone, he deplores police brutality. But Mr. Schaffer does not get mad, he gets even.

Attorneys working with Mr. Schaffer over the past several years have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlements for clients who were falsely arrested and held in jail. While not every dismissal results in a successful false arrest case, Mr. Schaffer offers free professional consultation. You will know if you may be entitled to financial compensation for your loss of liberty.

An arrest is more than an inconvenience. It may have a lasting impact on a person's life. If you or a loved one has been arrested only to have the case dismissed, DP'd (decline to prosecute), or resolved in your favor as the result of an acquittal after trial, or if you have been the victim of police brutality you should immediately contact Peter J. Schaffer at (718) 585-4444 for a no-cost professional consultation.
