In many cases of sex assault and child sexual molestation, the perpetrator of the crime was enabled by others. If your family has recently been affected by sexual violence, you may have many concerns:

If you have been victimized by sexual abuse or assault you should speak with an experienced attorney today to learn your legal rights. Our law firm only represents victims, fighting for compensation in civil lawsuits.
Unfortunately, assault can happen in many different areas people interact with on a daily basis. The perpetrators look to take positions of power where they have contact with vulnerable groups of people. Shame and fear are constant reminders of the abuse. Closure may seem out of reach, but you have powerful rights.
One of the common types of abuse that often gets hidden is within religious organizations. There is a level of authority that can be used to violate trust of the victims. Our firm has experience in representing victims in civil cases across many different religions including the Catholic Church, Jewish Synagogues, Mormon Church, and more.
Doctors and nurses have intimate access to patients who are expecting high-quality care. This trust can become compromised with doctors abusing their position of power. In recent years doctor and nurse sex abuse cases have risen.
Schools are seen as safe places for you or your child to learn. Unfortunately, schools are a place where perpetrators often work. Our team has represented victims across public schools, private schools and boarding schools.
Gymnastic coaches, diving coaches, wrestling coaches, and more are all positions recently in the news for sexual abuse claims. Children trust their coaches to provide the right guidance for progressing but perpetrators often take advantage of this trust.
Remember, by speaking out as victims of sexual assault you are helping others who have yet to find their voices. You can help hold the abuser and organization responsible.
Unfortunately, sexual violation or rape can cause long-lasting damages, both mentally and physically. Some of the common types of injuries can include:
By filing a civil lawsuit, victims are able to receive compensation to help cover the treatment of the effects they are suffering from.
As of January 2020, a child who was sexually assaulted now has until their 40th birthday to file a claim. In addition, they also have within 5 years of the discovery of the abuse to file a civil lawsuit.
An adult aged 18 or older has 10 years from the date of the last act, or within three years after the discovery of an injury or illness from the act.
