REPRESENTATION OF VICTIMS / SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT
Victims, survivors, of Sexual Assault suffer traumatic and often lifelong injury. Physical and mental.
Sex assault is an assault upon a victim’s person . . . whether it is harassment, unwanted touching or contact, or rape… simply, a sexual act of any kind without a victim’s consent.
It may involve children or juveniles, who cannot consent to any sexual contact with an adult because, under the law, the adult was in a position of trust, or where the ages of those involved means that there is no possible legal consent to any sexual contact.
Victims of sexual assault need the representation of a good lawyer to counsel, advise, assist, and pursue litigation against those responsible. Sex assault often involves persons known to the victim and is a betrayal of trust, and often a betrayal by other individuals or businesses whose negligence makes them responsible as well for the sexual assault . . . and liable under the law.
