Strategic, Powerful and Aggressive Litigation
“Our civil litigation practice concentrates on maximizing financial awards for those persons injured by the negligence or recklessness of another, while our civil rights practice focuses on holding those law enforcement officers accountable, financially and legally, who violate the absolute rights provided by the United States Constitution. These two areas of practice are complemented by our criminal defense practice which concentrates on vigorously defending those persons who are wrongfully charged, focusing on protecting their freedom”.
Civil Right Violations
Mitnick Law is focusing on understanding, identifying and pursuing actions for civil right violations, including wrongful detentions, improper motor vehicle stops, falsified police reports, improper searches, property seizures, detentions and arrests. Constitutional violations are increasing at an exponential rate as law enforcement efforts are becoming enhanced through technology and often times unacceptable aggressive policing. Law Enforcement agencies are increasingly striping many motorists of their essential constitutional rights. Police Officers are sworn to serve and protect, not to investigate and interrogate motorists.
“Probable cause to arrest requires more than mere suspicion”
ORSATTI v NEW JERSEY STATE POLICE
“Police should not be permitted to rely on unsubstantiated hunches”
UNITED STATES v BROWN
There is a growing need to hold accountable those law enforcement officers and entities that falsify reports to justify illegal searches, seizures and arrests.
Often times, individuals maintain that law enforcement officers or agencies engage in policies and practices of unlawful policing that violate the United States Constitution, the Constitution of a specific state, and the laws of the federal and state government. All citizens of the United States should be afforded the constitutional right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable stops, searches and arrests. The improper policing practices engaged in by certain local and state law enforcement personnel deprive innocent motorists and pedestrians of their essential constitutional protections.
“Rouge police officers who routinely engage in improper tactics, disregard any commitment to constitutional policing and should be held accountable for statutory violations and loss of constitutional rights”.
Mass Tort and Class Actions
The purpose of mass tort litigation is to give the average hard working person the ability to hold accountable large corporations and private entities who engage in wrongdoings that in turn cause them personal harm. Mitnick Law is of the strong belief that individuals, companies and organizations that put profit before safety must be held accountable.
In instances where more than one person is injured by the same civil defendant, we work hard to bring together hundreds and sometimes thousands of individuals who are injured and place them into a single lawsuit, allowing for a better chance of success by creating more momentum and credibility than otherwise would exist in any individual lawsuit.
“In any mass tort or class action, our goal is to maximize financial recovery and additional benefits for our clients”.
Personal Injury Actions
Each year scores of individuals are injured, sometimes fatally, in accidents which are no fault of their own. Last year over 3 million people were injured and or killed in accidents due to the negligence or recklessness of another individual or corporate entity.
Mitnick Law works quickly, strategically and diligently to ensure that our clients obtain the damages that they are entitled too. We are not afraid to challenge insurance companies in a courtroom, or in front of a jury. As powerful, effective and aggressive as we are in a courtroom , is as experienced as we are with first attempting to negotiate a settlement.
“Those who are reckless or negligent, including both individuals and corporations, need to be held accountable for their behavior. We recover the maximum financial benefits for our clients because they deserve at least that”
