For Parents of a Sexually Abused Child

Turn To A Legal Team With The Experience And Track Record To Help You

Nothing can be more traumatic than to learn that your child is a victim of sexual abuse. At this point, the last thing you want to do is to subject your child to the legal system and risk further injury. Our sexual abuse legal team understands and shares your concern. But, we would ask that you, like hundreds of parents before you, trust us in this process.

Our team understands that the effect of sexual abuse on the victim is lifelong, thus making it crucial that child molestation victims have the financial resources to take care of themselves for the next 65-75 years of their life. As a result, it is our goal to turn childhood sexual abuse victims into survivors along with productive members of society. By using the law and civil litigation, those that failed to protect your child are held accountable.

Over the years, our legal team continues to work on behalf of children harmed by child care institutions obligated to protect kids:

Trusted by Parents of Sexually Abused Children

Our sexual abuse legal team goes the extra mile for sexually abused children, refusing to accept anything less than fair compensation. As an example, our trial work resulted in a $15 million settlement for four children harmed by educator sexual abuse at O.B. Whaley Elementary School.

Using the Law to Make Our Community Safer

Our law firm works diligently for legislative changes to protect children. As a result, our advocacy protects children by making the laws stronger for victims. Therefore, the predators and the institutions that enable their behavior are less likely to evade responsibility through legal loopholes. Our track record includes:

  • Exposing hundreds of predator coaches affiliated with USA Swimming. Consequently, USA Swimming and the USOC were forced to make the protection of young amateur athletes a top priority and rid themselves of coaches with a history of sexually abusing children.
  • With State Senator Jim Beall, we helped change the law to give sexual abuse victims more time to prosecute their predator. Surprisingly, before the change, child molestation victims could not prosecute after they turned 28 years old.
  • Legislation allowing child molestation victims more time to file a lawsuit against the institution that enabled the predator's crime. Unfortunately, the governor vetoed the bill in both 2013 and 2014.
  • Passage and signing of two significant laws, including Audrie's Law, resulting from the tragic suicide of Audrie Pott.
