The law dictates that only under very particular circumstances can a New York cop shoot a civilian with any type of gun, including taser and stun guns. If you have been injured or lost a loved one as the result of police brutality, it is imperative that you are represented by a highly experienced attorney. In order to make certain that your voice is heard, your lawyer must have in-depth knowledge of the law and have a proven track record representing other victims of police brutality. Our firm offers the level of experience that you need.

Police Shootings Resulting In Injuries And Fatalities
Situations involving police shootings can quickly become escalated. When additional law enforcement enter into the scene, the tensions can rise and acts of brutality can suddenly become contagious. Then within seconds, the dynamic of a situation can be completely changed.
Attorney Bonita Zelman represented a victim of a police shooting in the Bronx, where the victim was shot more than 50 times. The victim did not have a weapon and law enforcement did not cease shooting even though the individual was unarmed.
