Police Excessive Force

Most police officers are committed and ethical. They work a difficult, dangerous job, and their days are extraordinarily stressful. However, police officers also exercise a great deal of control over the lives of the people they interact with, and an abuse of this power is particularly egregious. The Berkman Law Office, LLC help the innocent victims of police use of excessive force and brutality pursue justice and compensation.

The physical, emotional, financial and legal consequences of police brutality can be staggering. A betrayal of trust in the police should not go unacknowledged.

At The Berkman Law Office, LLC, we’ll be there for you. Our police brutality lawyers will listen to your story and advise you on how best to proceed with your claim.

Examples of Police Brutality

Most of us are familiar with the sad, sordid recordings that catch what we usually think of as “police brutality:” physical violence perpetrated by a police officer on a restrained or otherwise helpless suspect. And these cases are horrible.

However, our police brutality lawyers understand that police misconduct has many different forms, including:

  • Unnecessary physical violence
  • Unnecessary and degrading strip searches
  • Sexual assault
  • Coercion, blackmail or other uses of police power to force you into doing something you don’t want to do
  • Racial profiling

Our personal injury lawyers recognize that these behavior are relatively rare. However, one case of police brutality is one too many, and there are far more instances than that.


The Berkman Law Office, LLC serves clients throughout Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Staten Island, Manhattan, Nassau County, and Westchester County NY. As well as clients in New Jersey.
