We know being sexually assaulted or molested is one of the most difficult and painful experiences someone can endure. Victims of sexual abuse deserve to be heard, protected, and advocated for.
Many victims are children, vulnerable to adults who hold authority or trust over them. Teenagers also face this danger; they are victimized under conditions where they lack the legal capacity to consent to sexual acts. In such instances, a sexual abuse attorney can hold the abusers—and groups they work within—accountable for these heinous acts.
Civil claims arising from these criminal acts are complex and require unique actions to be taken; for example, sexual assault lawyers often have to work closely with law enforcement officials to protect the victims. Confidentiality, too, is a specialized aspect to consider in protecting the rights of sexual assault or abuse victims. In order for victims to be properly protected and represented, they should have an attorney who understands these concepts and is willing to fight for them.
