How We Can Help

No parent should have to question the safety of his or her child in a school setting. Unfortunately, reports of sexual abuse by school employees are quite common. Sometimes these stories catch national attention, causing hurt and embarrassment for those who are directly affected.

Our firm represents victims of sexual abuse and parents of children who have experienced the following:

  • Sexual abuse by teachers
  • Sexual abuse by administrative staff
  • Sexual abuse by school counselors
  • Sexual abuse by coaches
  • Affairs and other inappropriate behavior with students by school personnel

The individual who is accused of sexual abuse will likely face criminal charges. In addition to criminal proceedings, many victims of sexual abuse choose to pursue a civil claim against the aggressor. Victims may be eligible for compensation for pain and suffering, psychological damage, and other damages.

We know how difficult it can be to decide to take legal action in cases as sensitive as this. When you choose to work with our firm in your sexual abuse civil case, we will treat you with care and compassion, standing by your side through every stage of the legal process.
