Often times trial lawyers take on cases not because of the potential financial renumeration but rather to right a wrong. In this case, nationally known trial lawyer Michael Ferrara took on the New Jersey State police because he believed the officer involved went too far in effect acting as a private debt collector for a local car repair shop. This case is not an indictment of the great work the state police do every day but rather serves to handcuff those officers who would abuse their authority and infringe upon the civil rights of our citizens.
