Abuse by Authority Figures
The sexual abuse of minors by authority figures is far too common and the effects can be devastating. The perpetrators are typically individuals who are liked and trusted by the child and his or her family. Our office has developed a niche in the representation of families throughout the United States whose children have been subjected to sexual and other abuse by camp counselors, school teachers, coaches and clergy members. The ramifications of such abuse are long-reaching and can require years of counseling which places a huge financial and emotional burden on both victim and family. In almost every case, the abuser had committed similar acts previously and would have kept on abusing if our clients hadn’t come forward. If a loved one has been subjected to this kind of abuse, it is imperative that a lawyer who understands the causes, patterns and effects of this abuse be involved if the victim and family are going to recover adequate financial support to allow a full recovery without further taxing an already difficult emotional situation with money concerns.
Reaching out is the first step, and we’ll take it from there. Contact our office for a discreet and cost-free consultation today.
