Law Enforcement

Lawyers Representing Police and Law Enforcement

Law enforcement is guided by a common philosophy – to serve, protect, and defend citizens while preserving the rights and dignity of all. At Carter Conboy, we respect both the philosophy and the members of law enforcement who are guided by these ideals, standards, and beliefs. If you are a member of law enforcement, the law firm of Carter Conboy is honored to represent you and your families.

Carter Conboy has been representing police and law enforcement for decades in matters involving disciplinary proceedings, critical incidents, defense of lawsuits involving constitutional and civil rights issues, and criminal defense.  Additionally, we provide counseling on a variety of risk management issues including policies, best practices and strategies, and mitigating potential lawsuits.

We Understand the Issues Facing Law Enforcement

Today’s challenges to law enforcement officials and departments are substantial. The dangers inherent in the job itself, together with the ever-changing legislative mandates, the increasing role of technology, the heightened public scrutiny and demands for institutional transparency, are just a few of the issues confronting law enforcement.  We appreciate your commitment to public safety, we respect the sacrifices you make every day, and we stand with you to navigate the risks of your profession.

We Have Served in and With Police and Law Enforcement

At Carter Conboy, our attorneys are committed to delivering excellence through knowledge and experience.  We have defended and protected members of law enforcement for decades.  And, while others may tout their experience, we have served in and with law enforcement, enabling us to offer objective experience and institutional knowledge.

Indeed, Carter Conboy is home to Thomas A. Capezza, former General Counsel to the New York State Police.  Tom brings his respect for law enforcement, strengthened by his day-to-day experiences with the State Police, to every law enforcement client.

We aim to earn your respect, protect your integrity and character, and defend what matters most to you and your family.
