Why Clients Choose Us

Clients choose Stoll, Glickman & Bellina, LLP because our attorneys take on cops and correction officers every single day and have been doing it for almost fifteen years. Our undiminished drive to dismantle a system that protects bad cops and corrupt correction officers and to earn justice for the powerless, translates into an aggressive and effective practice.

It is why people turn to us when they need a civil rights lawyer to help them get justice with the NYPD and Corrections Officers as well as other city police forces (such as Yonkers, Mount Vernon, Buffalo), troopers and sheriffs. Our referrals come not only from former clients, but also former adversaries: City attorneys, prosecutors, court officers and stenographers have all referred clients to us for help.

We have deep experience with every aspect of law enforcement, and the many ways in which it can unfairly intrude into your life.

If you have had an encounter with a cop that just seemed wrong to you, talk it over with an attorney who knows how the cops operate, and how they should operate. If your loved one is being mistreated in custody, contact us. We represent people from all walks of life who have been treated unfairly by the system, and we help them take justice back from the powerful. We take on major and minor cases, and know the system inside and out.
