Vigorous defense for NY police

As former police officers and prosecutors themselves, the lawyers of Worth, Longworth & London, LLP vigorously defend law enforcement officers facing suspension, termination or other employment sanctions or who are charged with committing a crime.

The firm is experienced in defending law enforcement officials in administrative and criminal actions arising from a variety of claims, including

-Use of excessive force
-Conduct unbecoming an officer
-Sexual harassment
-Violation of suspect's or inmate's civil rights
-DWI

-Police misconduct
-Rules infractions
-Sick time misuse
-License suspension
