Barket Marion is a law firm committed to defending your rights, whether you have been victimized, falsely accused, or dealt with unjustly. While renowned for our litigation capabilities, we also function as fine negotiators. At times we position ourselves to use the threat of litigation as a tactic to obtain the generous settlement you deserve, but we are always ready to take action as aggressive, agile litigators. Our team is poised to protect you against any violations of your civil rights as well as to fight for you in cases in which you have been personally injured due to the negligence of others.
Under the Civil Rights Act (U.S. Code Title 42 Section 1983) and other federal and state civil rights laws, people who have been treated unjustly by the police, prison guards and other agents of the government can sue for money damages and other types of legal redress.
At Barket Marion, our attorneys fight civil rights offenses on behalf of clients on Long Island and in all five boroughs of New York City, helping them obtain fair compensation for police brutality, unlawful detention and imprisonment, and other violations of their civil and constitutional rights.
Even though the United States has come a long way from the shameful aspects of its history, we still have to fight the good fight to keep ourselves and those around us from having our civil rights restricted or even eliminated. Our attorneys handle cases involving all types of allegations against government entities, including:
- Police misconduct
- Prison misconduct
- Prosecutorial misconduct
We hold police departments accountable for abuses such as the use of excessive force during arrests, false arrests and unjustified warrantless searches. We help the inmates of prisons and jails take legal action in response to violations such as physical abuse, sexual abuse and misuse of solitary confinement. In addition, we pursue civil rights claims against criminal prosecutors who have abused their positions to take unwarranted and malicious actions against our clients.
All of the above civil rights violations occur much more frequently than they should, especially considering that those who are abusing their power have all sworn solemn oaths to uphold the law. At Barket Marion we take such cases very seriously. We will fight vigorously for your rights if you have been mistreated by those whose job it is to protect you. Misconduct by those entrusted to protect and serve must never be tolerated, and our attorneys see to it that deserving victims of such abuses have their day in court.
The attorneys at Barket Marion also have a wealth of experience in the area of personal injury law. Because we are well aware that when you have been injured in an accident, insurance companies are not on your side, we are ready to protect you from experiencing financial victimization in addition to the physical harm you have already suffered.
Whether you have been injured in a car accident, a slip and fall, or as a result of medical malpractice, our attorneys will fight aggressively to make sure that you receive damages to pay your medical costs and lost income, and to compensate you, to the greatest extent possible, for your pain and suffering. We always take the time to listen to your detailed account of the event and to respond with strength to your concerns, both in and outside of the courtroom. With Barket Marion on your side, you can be certain that you will receive the maximum amount of restitution you deserve.
