Law Enforcement

Legal Services to the Law Enforcement Community

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.

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 and we stand with you to navigate the risks of your profession.

Accomplished Law Enforcement Attorneys

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.

The mission of our team is simple: earn your respect, protect your integrity and character, and defend what matters most to you and your family.
