Countdown to file your claim
Sexual assault can be traumatizing and life-shattering for victims. Survivors should know that there are resources available to assist in healing and recovery.
If you have been sexually abused, you do not have to carry your trauma alone. Get the help you need to work through and rise above what you have experienced.
Childhood sexual abuse is a huge problem. It is estimated that one in 10 children will be sexually abused before the age of 18.
From providing exceptional health care to our elders, education to our children, and spiritual leadership to our congregation, we place trust in others in every single moment of our daily lives.
However, that trust is destroyed when those in positions of power use it to take advantage of vulnerable children, women, and men. Often times, this comes in the form of sexual abuse.About Our Firm
