Aggressively Protecting Your Civil Rights

Under Federal, New York State and New York City Laws every person has a right to fair and equal treatment and to be free from discrimination based on race, creed, color, gender, sexual preference, and religion.

At Palillo Law, we fight to obtain justice and compensation for those who have fallen victim to abuses of power and authority. If you were victimized by a government official, a New York City police officer, private entity, or if you were sexually harassed by your employer/co-employee we can help.

Giving You a Voice

Law enforcement cannot arrest or detain you without having reasonable suspicion that you were breaking the law, but innocent citizens are victimized by those in power with alarming frequency. Discriminatory practices or abuse by a business or government entity can leave the victim with lasting emotional trauma.

At Palillo Law, we understand how demoralizing a civil rights violation can be and work tirelessly to help you get the justice you deserve.

Fighting Back Against Illegal and Immoral Treatment

Civil rights violation claims are complex, often involving powerful adversaries. With more than 30 years of experience and a track record of successful results, we are well-equipped to fiercely fight for your rights. We have experience handling cases involving:

  • Racial profiling

  • Excessive use of force and police brutality
