False Arrest and Police Brutality

If you have been wrongfully arrested or imprisoned or otherwise injured as a result of police misconduct, you may be able to recover significant money damages in a civil rights lawsuit. Victims often feel violated, shamed, or outraged, and they need an attorney with the skill and backbone to pursue the justice that they rightfully deserve. The attorneys at The Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo have applied their experience as criminal defense attorneys and former prosecutors to the successful pursuit of their clients' civil lawsuits for false arrest, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, and police brutality/excessive force, and they are prepared to help you fight back against those that have violated your constitutional rights.

Our firm works for a contingency fee in these matters, meaning that you do not have to pay unless you recover money damages. We offer a free and honest evaluation of your case, top-notch legal analysis, and exceptional customer service. Just as important, we understand that the system is confusing and sometimes intimidating. Thus, we always take the time to answer their clients' questions and explain every step of the process.

Client Reviews
Mr. Galluzzo and his team at The Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo are absolutely one of the best at what they do. The work tirelessly at getting the best possible result for the case at hand and they truly care about their clients. Galluzzo and his team were able to overturn and vacate my guilty plea, then taking a big risk where I could have faced a large amount of time in prison Galluzzo took my case to trial. He walked in there with the confidence and swagger as if he already knew everything would work out for me, he laid out every single fact and hole in the prosecutions case to the jury and came away with a full acquittal on every charge after just one hour of deliberations. In an instant, I had my life back! I would most certainly recommend Matthew and his team to anyone in need of legal help. Thanks again Matt! Client
