Lyndhurst, NJ asked in Personal Injury and Civil Rights for New Jersey

Q: I was attacked by a laundromat employee and I need an attorney, I am not sure what kind. I am a person of color.

I filed a police report and the way it was written, to me, it reads like I did something wrong. This is so with the knowledge that there was video footage that they the Police refuse to secure. I live in Rutherford.
