I was beaten by a cop. What kind of attorney will I need?

Riverhead, NY |

The cop was arresting a friend of mine. I kept asking why. Another cop came up on me and asked me to back up. I asked why is he getting arrested. Why why? He arrested me for asking why and beat me with a paton. He lied and said i hit him. NO MARKS ON HIM. AND SAID I BROKE HIS GLASSES. (NOTHING WRONG WITH HIS GLASSES.) I had a huge bruises on my legs. I never put my hands on him. I was never arrested before. It this was my first time in jail or even getting in trouble besides parking tickets.
