New York police, corrections officers and others in authority are not above the law — but some of them forget or ignore that fact. When they make mistakes, lose control and abuse their powers, the harm done to ordinary citizens is often lasting and costly.

Krawitz, LLC, a dedicated NYC police brutality attorney who has been taking action for the injured and innocent for more than 30 years will evaluate and prioritize your case.
