Bronx Probable Cause Lawyer
If you have been arrested without probable cause, the process leading up to your first appearance in front of a judge is considered a false arrest. Once you have faced a judge, the procedure that follows is considered malicious prosecution. In these situations, it is important that you contact an attorney experienced in protecting civil rights.
Attorney Edward Friedman is a Brooklyn malicious prosecution attorney with a great deal of experience in civil rights defense cases. The district attorney is not liable in cases of malicious prosecution. The police are responsible for damages if the case is prosecuted against someone falsely accused.
In order to preserve all of your rights, it is important to contact a lawyer quickly. Your attorney must file a notice of claim with the city controller within 90 days from the time your case is dismissed.
