In New Jersey, the Fraternal Order of Police is the collective bargaining unit for over 20,000 law enforcement officers. Fusco & Macaluso has proudly served the New Jersey FOP for over 30 years, and are committed to protecting those who protect others as NJ Law Enforcement Professionals. As attorneys for the New Jersey FOP, we are also your on-the-job partners, especially when complex legal matters arise. We are committed to being your fiercest advocates, as many matters we handle could jeopardize your employment as a law enforcement officer. We are dedicated to providing the latest pertinent information as we continually strive to better serve your needs.
Our attorneys are experienced in departmental hearings involving proposed suspension time and terminations, Office of Administrative law appeals, Civil Service Commission list removal appeals, psychological and fitness for duty appeals, New Jersey Appellate Division Appeals, and complaints in lieu of prerogative writ in Superior Court. Our attorneys are also skilled in negotiating and drafting settlement agreements at the departmental or appeal level. Our FOP attorneys offer support throughout the entire scope of disciplinary actions related to on or off duty incidents, and through their experience, are able to guide officers accordingly through an often frustrating process.
