Nationally Recognized Civil Rights Lawyers

Krasner & Long are well versed in cases involving civil rights claims, especially when they are related to Police Misconduct. Recently, five Philadelphia police officers and one Lieutenant were transferred after Lawrence Krasner brought information to light that suggesting that the officers were collaborating with drug dealers within Philadelphia. Mr. Krasner also brought forth information pointing to additional claims of police brutality, fabricated evidence, and even theft. Upon receiving this information, the District Attorney of Philadelphia has decided that the testimonies of these officers are not reliable, and as a result several cases are being dismissed. Cases of Misconduct such as these reaffirm the public’s need to regulate law enforcement.
