Sexual Abuse Harm

A Law Firm Representing California Victims of Sexual Abuse

No law firm is doing more to protect children from childhood sexual abuse than the team at Cerri, Boskovich & Allard. Besides gaining fair compensation for sexual abuse victims inside the courtroom, the law firm has a long track record in working with elected officials in order to create stronger laws to protect children. The reason is simple. Sexual abuse harm is life-long and does not go away.

The harm from sexual abuse has been well documented. The long road to healing begins with therapy.

Life-long harm encountered by sexual abuse victims include but is not limited to:

What Happens When You Contact Us

Cerri, Boskovich & Allard is one of the few law firms in the country with a dedicated legal team of attorneys and experts that work for the best interests of sexually abused children and their parents.

From the moment you call for information, the legal team begins to work for you.

Once information is learned about your case, attorneys Robert Allard, Lauren Cerri, and Mark Boskovich will confer to determine the best course of action. At that point, an appointment will be made for you to meet personally, at no charge, with one or more of the attorneys. Even though one of the attorneys will take the lead, all three will work together on your case, providing you with the strongest advocacy possible.

If you trust us with your case, we will start working for the best interests of you and your child. Our private investigators will start collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses.

Lastly, should we succeed in gaining compensation for your child, we work with the court to ensure that the compensation is used for the sole benefit of your child. That is because in California, the courts supervise all sexual abuse settlements made to minors to eliminate financial fraud. As a result, sexual abuse settlements are frequently used to purchase annuities for lifetime income payments, to open accounts for college savings or to establish trusts which provide for the health, financial support, and education of your child.

Why Should I File a Sexual Abuse Lawsuit?

In this country, we have a criminal justice system and a civil justice system. The criminal justice system is designed to punish the pedophile through incarceration. The civil justice system is to compensate your child for the harm that was done, and that will last a lifetime.

In a civil justice lawsuit, we look to hold accountable those that enabled the pedophile to inflict harm to your child. All too often, children are unwittingly placed in positions where they are vulnerable to sexual abuse by trusted people, including:

Should an organization such as a school, a youth serving organization, or a church place someone with a history of sexual abuse in a position of authority over your child, or if that institution fails to take appropriate steps to prevent the risk of sexual abuse, that organization may be held legally accountable as well. There is no reason that your child should spend the rest of their life coping with the proven effects that come from sexual abuse.

In my experience and in my abusive past, the power was taken away from me. I received my power back going through this process. I received my voice back. Allison B.
★★★★★
There's a lot of people who are focused on monetary gain and I didn't feel that with attorney Bob Allard. I felt like their priority, in addition to vindicating me, was to take care of me and to get justice for what was right. Stevie G.
