Since 1996, the Law Offices of Figeroux & Associates has given a voice to citizens subjected to physical injury, racially motivated arrests and other police misconduct. We pursue justice not only through money damages, but also by holding police officers and police departments publicly accountable for civil rights violations.
“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.”
— Montesquieu, 1742

A Few Bad Apples? The Problem Runs Deeper Than That. Our law firm is not anti-police.
We’re against the abuse of power. We have no complaint with the thousands of New York City law enforcement professionals who do their jobs within the rules.
But yes, there are bad cops. There are too many who feel free to disregard the constitutional rights of those they are supposed to protect and serve. Why are “rogue cops” retained or promoted after complaints of excessive force and other civil rights violations? In most cases, the problem is not simply one officer’s pattern of misconduct, but a precinct or command culture that condones it. And the unspoken rule among law enforcement personnel that says: “We protect our own.”
Figeroux & Associates has a knack for breaking through the famous “blue wall of silence” to uncover the truth. We have assembled a team of lawyers who can piece together the case through witness accounts, police reports, depositions, experts and Internal Affairs investigations to challenge the police version of events.
If you were the victim of police misconduct, contact us today for powerful, committed, proven representation.
New York, Civil Rights Attorneys
The NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices raise serious concerns over racial profiling, illegal stops and privacy rights. The Department’s own reports on its stop-and-frisk activity confirm what many people in communities of color across the city have long known: The police are stopping hundreds of thousands of law abiding New Yorkers every year, and the vast majority are black and Latino.
