As a general rule, police officers have broad powers in carrying out their law enforcement duties. However, those powers are not limitless. The fact that someone is suspected of or charged with a crime does not make it acceptable to violate his or her civil rights. Unfortunately, these violations happen on a regular basis; sometimes they are so public and egregious they make the national news. More often, victims suffer without the abuse being witnessed, and without any redress.
The Federal Civil Rights Act (42 U.S.C. §1983) is the best known of the laws that are intended to protect defendants and prisoners from misconduct by police, prison guards, and other government agents. These laws allow victims of unjust treatment to bring suit against the police or government for damages.
The Law Office of Anthony Strazza represents clients whose civil rights have been violated in a variety of ways, including:
Our justice system is founded on the idea that all people are innocent until proven guilty, and the principle that all people are entitled to due process and fair treatment within the system. Anthony Strazza believes that those who are supposed to serve and protect must be held to account when they instead harm and violate the rights of those in their custody. He fights to protect the civil rights of his clients and to ensure that those who violate these basic rights pay for their misconduct.
Whether or not you committed a crime, you deserve to be treated fairly. If you have been treated unjustly, it's important to expose that injustice--not just for yourself, but for the sake of others in the same position. Anthony Strazza will stand up for you and for what's right.
