Police Brutality and Excessive Use of Force

Law enforcement and police are intended to provide protection to citizens, not to abuse their authority, causing harm to people along the way. Unfortunately, this happens all too often.

Essex County Excessive Use of Force Attorney

At the law office of Goldstein & Goldstein, we know what many people have experienced and fear from law enforcement. We are committed to fighting on behalf of the individual when police take their authority too far, inflicting injury or using excessive force.

While other firms shy away from these cases, you can be assured that we will fight aggressively on your behalf to ensure that justice is accomplished after police misconduct or police violence.

You may feel that you do not have a chance at making this right, but we will hold law enforcement accountable for its actions against you.

Because of a reduction in police force due to budget cuts in northern New Jersey, it is not uncommon for law enforcement to feel outnumbered and overwhelmed in situations of conflict. Because of this, they often feel the need to keep situation under control by aggressively handling individuals involved.

These types of actions can include throwing people to the ground, leaving individuals in handcuffs longer than is legal, and causing injury through rough handling and inconspicuous jabs.

This kind of behavior is unacceptable and illegal. If you have been abused by police brutality or excessive use of force, we can help. Our lawyers will review the evidence in the case, obtaining tapes and documents of the incident, as well as eye witness accounts. We will craft a thorough case on your behalf.
