Should I or can I get a new lawery to handle my lawsuit against the city and nypd,
About three years ago, the nypd enter my home with no warrant, after two monthes, they had a affidavit, they destroyed my home. arrested arrested my self, husband, and son, my husband was beating so bad that the central booking did not want to take him with out him going to the er, he suffered fracture rib and and his face leaking blood from the eye were he was hit with gun, my son was face arrest and his case was dismissed, we went to see a lawery, than five monthes later after the hearing the cops enter again, this time they came in the home and did not mess up my home, but arrested my husband and son and my self and they lied and said they saw my son throw out a large bag, his case was dismissed again. the officer that we are suing for the beating came to us and said ( do you think your case is going anywere) I asked my lawery isn't this retaliation? I think they are not doing they job well because they did not add that to my claim.
It sounds like there is a basis to move to amend the complaint. More facts are needed.
