We have handled several high profile Pro Bono Cases on behalf of New York cyclists in an effort to change the practice and policies of the NYPD in its policing of New York's cyclists. For instance, our office ended the practice of the NYPD of pursuing property damage claims against cyclists in which their vehicles who were involved in a crash. We further bought to light the manner in which the NYPD stops cyclists when attempting to write a summons.
