Nothing robs you of your sense of safety, sovereignty, and well-being like sexual abuse. If you or someone you know has experienced sexual abuse, you know the long-term ramifications of this crime can be devastating. Healing from sex abuse takes time, professional help, and support. But paying for therapy, taking time off work for a support group, and other consequences of sex abuse are huge burdens and often require more money and time than our clients have. That’s why hiring a sex abuse attorney is so essential. Not only can we help get you the compensation you deserve, but we’ll bring justice to your perpetrator. We’re ready to fight for your rights with determination and expertise. 

Understanding Sex Abuse Cases

Sex abuse is “any sexual contact that a person suffers, submits to, participates in, or performs due to force or violence, threats, fear or deception or without having legally consented to the act.” Sex abuse encompasses any sexual contact you didn’t consent to or consented to because you feared the repercussions of not consenting. 

Experiencing any level of sexual abuse is incredibly damaging because many victims lose their sense of safety, experience physical pain and long-term health problems, have mental health problems and often suffer from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Survivors can also turn to coping mechanisms like substance abuse, disordered eating, self-harm, and suicidal ideation. 

The consequences of sex abuse are substantial. But you don’t have to heal and find justice alone. Professionals are dedicated to helping you along the way, including sexual assault victim advocates, support groups, lawyers, and therapists. When you are ready to press charges, you’ll need an attorney on your side who not only has expertise in sex abuse cases but is dedicated to creating a compassionate and confidential atmosphere to help you feel safe.

Nevada Sex Abuse Attorneys

Our team has handled many sex abuse cases in Nevada, and while these cases are heartbreaking, we feel honored to be a voice and advocate for our clients. Many personal injury attorneys are technically qualified to litigate a sex abuse case, but few have the experience and compassion to do so in a way that results in justice and compensation for their clients. This type of case requires more expertise than your standard case; sexual abuse cases often lack the concrete evidence we find in other cases. But our team is determined to build an excellent case, regardless of the challenges. Our dedication to getting justice for our clients drives us, and by combining that drive with our experience, you can be sure you are getting the legal help you need. 

Seeking Justice for Sex Abuse Victims

Any type of trial can feel taxing for our clients, but a sex abuse trial can be exceptionally difficult. However, we’ve seen the importance of holding perpetrators responsible for their actions and the healing and empowerment we see for our clients. While having your abuser held accountable won’t take away what happened, we’ve seen it be a huge step toward peace and healing. We know how exhausting, painful, and triggering litigating your case can be, so our team works tirelessly to make the process as easy and seamless as possible. 

Personalized Approach and Support

When looking for an attorney to try your sex abuse case, you have already made a considerable stride in your healing. Acknowledging that you need help to seek justice is a huge step and one you should be proud you’ve made. While many law firms can try a sex abuse case, choosing one that focuses on their client’s needs isn’t as easy. Our team creates a personalized plan not only in the legal realm but also to help you find resources outside our firm. We help our clients find therapists, support groups, literature, and organizations to support them through their healing. This extra layer of care and support sets us apart from other firms and is part of our firm’s core belief that justice isn’t just found in the courtroom, it’s found in every aspect of our client’s healing. 

Confidentiality and Privacy

Sexual abuse can create a feeling of shame, self-loathing, and helplessness in the survivor, making it difficult to tell anyone about the abuse, let alone an attorney you just met. The courage and willpower required to approach an attorney for legal help is truly awe-inspiring, so we take your privacy and confidentiality seriously. Your case is more than just a case to us, it represents one of the most painful events a human can experience, and our job is to protect your privacy while we seek justice. We take the privilege of hearing your story seriously and ensure the utmost privacy, respect, and confidentiality apply to your case. 

Taking Action and Holding Responsible Parties Accountable

The steps in trying a sexual abuse case are similar to other cases. We’ll start with a consultation where we get a general idea of your experience. Then we’ll file documents with the court, start discovery, build the case, try the case or start settlement negotiations, and then collect your settlement. Each phase will have several meetings, including depositions and pre-trial hearings. This process may feel daunting, but our team will be with you every step of the way, not only building a strong case but helping you find resources to cope with the stress of the case.
