Defending Your Rights & Fighting for Your Best Interests

If you are a victim of a false arrest, know that you are not alone. The state of New York’s “stop and frisk” policy enables law enforcement officers to stop and frisk individuals who they reasonably believe have committed a crime or are about to commit one. As a result, countless people are arrested for no good reason each year.

What is Considered a Legal Arrest?

Law enforcement officers can legally arrest an individual if:

  • The individual is interfering with a legitimate arrest or police investigation.
  • They have good reason to believe the individual is a criminal fleeing a crime scene.
  • They have probable cause to believe the individual committed a specific criminal offense.
  • They have a valid arrest warrant.

If you were arrested and the arresting officer did not meet any of the above criteria, you should retain experienced legal representation as soon as possible. It is highly likely that your rights were violated, and a lawyer can help you hold the police accountable both legally and financially. At Lebedin Kofman LLP, our false arrest attorneys in New York have years of experience in this complicated area of law. We can guide you through the process as we fight for the justice and compensation you deserve.

The Effects of a False Arrest

Anytime an arrest is made, it is a costly, time-consuming, stressful, and frightening experience. This is especially true for victims of false arrests who were completely innocent.
