Helping Victims Of False Arrest And Malicious Prosecution Fight Back

While both New York and federal law guarantee you several civil rights, one of the most fundamental is that you cannot be arrested, detained or held in custody without probable cause.

If the police violate this right and place you under wrongful arrest for any reason, you may have legal recourse available. Similarly, if the government elects to prosecute you for an alleged offense, despite the lack of probable cause, you may be entitled to file a claim for malicious prosecution. Regardless of whether you are the victim of a false arrest or false prosecution, however, you need a dedicated and knowledgeable lawyer by your side defending your rights.

At Luibrand Law Firm, PLLC, we believe police officers, prosecutors and government officials should be held accountable if they overstep their authority and violate your civil rights, especially if this violation involves a false arrest or malicious prosecution.

You only have 90 days to file a notice of your false arrest claim since it is against the government, so you need to act quickly. Schedule your FREE initial consultation at Luibrand Law Firm, PLLC, today by calling 518-362-5759. You can also reach out to us online.
