Candidates who fail to provide documents requested during the police officer application process will have their file marked discontinued. WARNING! There is no appeal from a discontinued status.

Candidates that receive a NOPD or Notice of Proposed Disqualification have thirty (30) days to appeal their disqualification.

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

To succeed in an appeal it is best to hire experts to assist you.  Depending on your level of interest in this job, the investment may pay off over the long run if your appeal is successful.

You will need both an attorney and a Mental Health Professional that specialize in disqualification appeals. Attempting to appeal on your own may cause you to miss out on important opportunities to make crucial arguments that could turn the appeal in your favor.

Having been a civil service disqualification appeals attorney for more than 18 years, I have extensive knowledge on how to appeal a NYPD Disqualification. Over the years I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.

If you have questions about your NYPD disqualification and you would like to schedule a free consultation, please contact me at 516 248 0040 to discuss your appeal

Part of the psychological disqualification appeal process is finding a psychologist who will help you make the strongest arguments for your candidacy. If the psychologist is unable or unwilling to acknowledge your accomplishments, good points and strengths or adversities you have overcome, or your persistence in improving despite past difficulties or disabilities, then you must look for a different psychologist. The psychologist you hire MUST BE ON YOUR SIDE, advocating for you.

Beware of psychologists who charge very low fees, tell you they will help you, and then do a superficial interview, as they may simply use the NYPD’s testing to confirm that you are unsuitable, and then send a report to the NYPD stating that you are unsuitable, without ever telling you. If this happens, not only did they not help you, but they actually destroyed any chance you had of ever becoming a NYPD officer.

You MUST make a clear agreement with any psychologist you hire that they will discuss their findings with you BEFORE sending any report to the NYPD.

The psychologist you are considering MUST understand that they are supposed to be advocating for you, and if they don’t believe you are suitable, then they should tell you they cannot support your candidacy, AND FURTHER AGREE not to submit any report to the NYPD if they come to such a conclusion. If this happens, at least you have an opportunity to find a psychologist who will help and support your appeal.

What you can expect in the NYPD psychological testing process….

The NYPD will give you a written exam consisting of hundreds of questions.  After the examination is scored you will be called to meet with a NYPD Psychological staff member for an oral psychological interview.

You may be asked questions about the answers you gave on the written exam and asked to explain your answers.

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

You will be questioned about your Educational History, Work History, Driving History, Arrest History (if any), Psychotherapy or medication taken, family and personal relationships as well as other relevant topics.

You will be asked to explain any issues that may arise in connection with any of the above topics.

You may also be asked to provide authorizations for the Psychologist to get documentation from your schools or jobs, which you will have to provide in order to complete the process.

You may receive notice that you have been placed on psychological review.  This review can take some time as other members of the NYPD team review your file.

There has been a sharp increase in the percentage of candidates appealing their NYPD NOPD psychological disqualification, and subsequently succeeding at a second interview.

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

However, before you can get a second interview you must first appeal your disqualification.

It is imperative that you obtain all of the facts before you act.

I am available if you would like to discuss the facts surrounding your particular situation and the appeal process for NOPD appeals (“step one”). We can also discuss what happened in the oral psychological interview, some tips and tactics, and how to avoid traps in a second interview, as well as the process for filing an appeal with the New York City Civil Service Commission in the event that you do not succeed at step one. We can also go over how to present the best case in order to get a hearing before the commission and how to succeed at that hearing.

REVIEWS FROM CLIENTS AFTER THEIR SECOND INTERVIEW:

April, 2022 – “Kevin helped me get my disqualification reversed! Very professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!” –  S.J.

September, 2021 – “Highly recommend for anyone looking to get on after being disqualified!  I first met with Mr. Sheerin in 2017 after being disqualified from the NYPD.  After going through the process of appeal, commission vacated the disqualification. Later on, I began processing on a new exam and met with Mr. Sheerin to prep for the interview. I am glad to say with his help, I was accepted into the most recent police academy for the NYPD! Don’t give up.” – Ashley A.

We are here to assist you if you receive a NYPD Disqualification

Feel free to call us at 516-248-0040 or email kevin@sheerinlaw.com.

There is a two step appeal process:

The first step in the appeal process is to appeal to the NYPD, who will review your appeal package. In the case of psychological disqualifications you may get a second psychological interview. If you receive a second psychological interview it is best to prepare with an expert.

The next step in the appeal process is the Notice of Disqualification (NOD) which is appealed to the NYC Civil Service Commission. The Commission holds hearings to determine if your disqualification was improper.

When you are disqualified, that disqualification will not be reversed unless you take action. Kevin has been assisting disqualified NYPD, FDNY, DSNY, NYC DOC candidates for more than 18 years. Each appeal is different, just as your history of school, work and personal relationships are different.

With more than 18 years of experience as a NYPD disqualification appeals lawyer I have helped many disqualified candidates who have received either a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) or a final Notice of Disqualification (NOD) for psychological reasons from the NYPD.

The NOPD letter provides the candidate with an opportunity to select and hire their own psychological expert and have the NYPD psychological file sent to that expert for review and preparation of a rebuttal report. However, in order for the NYPD psychological file to be released, the disqualified candidate MUST first respond to the NOPD.

It is crucial, as a disqualified candidate, that you select a psychologist familiar with the appeals process. ONCE YOU SELECT AN EXPERT TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR APPEAL YOU WILL MOST LIKELY BE UNABLE TO SWITCH EXPERTS LATER.

Also, selecting a psychologist that you formerly had counseling session with is a poor choice.

I have extensive experience regarding how to appeal a NYPD Disqualification. Over the years I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.

We continue to help candidates who have been disqualified from the NYPD.  For more than 18 years we have assisted candidates who receive letters for NYPD psychological, NYPD medical or NYPD character or background disqualification.  In each of these areas we have had notable success in appealing the grounds for disqualification.

It is crucial that you have a NYC Civil Service disqualification appeals attorney  help you in your fight to appeal your disqualification.  We frequently appear at the NYC Civil Service Commission to argue on behalf of our clients that their disqualification was improper.

NYPD psychological disqualifications and NYC Department of Corrections psychological disqualifications are often appealed.  It is important to hire someone who knows this area thoroughly, has appeared before the Civil Service Commission, knows their rules and procedures and knows how they have decided cases in the past.
