Prisoners’ Rights

We fight on behalf of prisoners and inmates who have been mistreated, discriminated against, brutalized, refused medical care, harassed, and denied necessary protection. We have represented clients at Rikers’ Island and local jails throughout New York State who have been hurt by guards and inmates.

The firm has advocated for clients subjected to excessive force, denial of medical care, failure to protect from violence, and anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination. We remain committed to protecting inmates — one of our most vulnerable populations.
