Practice Areas : Civil Rights


Every law enforcement officer is entrusted with the safety and security of our communities, our children and our lives. When officers abuse their power and violate an individual's civil rights, they dishonor all of us -- that includes the honest police officers. Whether you are the victim of police brutality, correction officer abuse, or any other abuse of power by someone in authority, call us. We can break the wall of silence and get you justice. For years, The Law Office Of Darin B. Wizenberg has held officers and their supervisors accountable for their abuse. In short, the Law Office Of Darin B. Wizenberg is positioned and always ready to "police the police".



Even those accused or convicted of a crime are entitled to protection. If you are the victim of a civil rights violation, you need to contact an experienced and reputable civil rights attorney right away. You may have only ninety days from the date of the incident to file a notice of claim against the City of New York or the State of New York to preserve your right to bring a case against them in state court. We represent clients in cases against the Police Department and Department of Corrections on a regular basis. If you contact us quickly, we will take care of the rest, protecting you every step of the way.  


At Law Office Of Darin B. Wizenberg, we recover money damages for your pain and suffering. We bring cases in state and federal courts, including class actions. We handle civil rights cases on a "contingent fee" basis, which means that our attorneys' fees are paid only when, and if, we recover money damages for you. If there is no recovery, do not expect a bill from us in the mail. All the costs and expenses of the litigation are our risk, and unless you prevail, we pay for them in full. We are a serious firm and we are serious about bringing justice to our clients. We put our money where our mouth is.


Civil rights violations we regularly litigate include:

  • Police Misconduct

  • Prisoner Rights


Our attorneys are available evenings, weekends and holidays to accommodate our clients. No matter what language you speak, we can handle your case. We have deep roots, experience and offices in every borough of New York City. Contact us at our Manhattan headquarters for an initial consultation.
