Fighting Back Against The Injustice Of Racial Profiling
No one should fear walking down the street in a particular neighborhood, driving on a public roadway or shopping at a specific store because they may be followed or have the police called on them simply because of the color of their skin. Unfortunately, this is an all too common reality for people of color in New Jersey and throughout the United States.
Racial profiling is a systemic problem in our country that doesn’t just affect how people in the community interact with people of color, but it can also impact how police react to situations and what decisions they make, which can often lead to wrongful arrests, violations of a person’s civil rights, false allegations and, in the worst of cases, wrongful death.
The Law Offices of Michael H. Schreiber, L.L.C., fights back against this injustice by providing aggressive advocacy throughout Atlantic City and across all of South Jersey. Lead attorney Michael H. Schreiber stands up for people who are facing criminal charges because of racial profiling, and he fights to ensure that their rights are protected and they receive justice.
Protection Against A Range Of Damaging Criminal Charges
Although police only need reasonable suspicion to stop you, the color of your skin is not a valid reason to violate your rights or harass or arrest you. For nearly 40 years, attorney Schreiber has helped countless victims of racial profiling refute a wide range of charges, including:
- Petty theft
- Burglary and robbery
- Drug possession
- Gang affiliation or activity
- Violent crimes
- Property crimes
- Weapons charges
- Traffic violations
Mr. Schreiber will take an aggressive, detail-oriented approach to your defense all while following the rules of evidence.
He will request all applicable evidence and police reports, speak to witnesses, collect security footage and compare everything to your story to uncover instances of:
- Unlawful traffic stops
- Unlawful “stop and frisk”
- False or fabricated charges
- Planted evidence
- False imprisonment
- Excessive force
- Police misconduct
- Unlawful search and seizure
- Failure to read you your Miranda rights
- Other civil rights violations
He then uses this evidence to seek dismissal of charges or reduced charges, depending on your case.
