Apartment Raids

Civil Rights Attorneys Committed to Helping New York City Residents

The police have broad powers to carry out their duties. However, they are not permitted to violate your civil rights. Apartment raids are often conducted in connection with searches for alleged narcotics, paraphernalia, or weapons. Sometimes they are conducted without probable cause, for a retaliatory purpose, involve improper strip searches, or are conducted in an unduly destructive or violent manner. At Phillips & Associates, our experienced civil rights lawyers can represent you after an improper New York City raid.

Improper Apartment Raids

Unlawful apartment raids and searches by the police can constitute 4th Amendment violations. Causes of action that may also be appropriate in an apartment raid case can include assault and battery, excessive force, false arrest, and malicious prosecution. In addition to compensatory damages, you may be able to recover punitive damages for civil rights violations.

I was a client with this law firm. I can't stress enough how awesome and professional the people are here. Silvia & Erica made me feel so comfortable and welcome. I never had to guess anything. Anytime I call, emailed, or even texted. They were always there. If not they would get back to me as soon as possible. My case was not an easy situation for me but I tell you these guys made it seem like it was. I'm so glad that I use Phillip & Phillip. I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart.
