Phoenix, AZ Sexual Assault and Abuse Lawyer

Sexual abuse happens when someone uses threats, force, or takes advantage of someone in a vulnerable position to engage in unwanted sexual activity.

Unfortunately, some organizations and institutions have provided perpetrators the opportunity to groom and exploit victims in settings where they are regularly taught to respect and follow those in leadership roles, such as doctors, priests, teachers, or coaches.

When these types of authority figures abuse people sexually it can be very harmful and traumatic for victims. They often have lasting physical, emotional, and psychological issues, from flashbacks and depression to eating disorders and self-harming behaviors, according to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.

Sexual assault and abuse have been in the news a great deal in recent years. This type of assault comes in an appalling variety of forms — sexual assault is not always forcible rape. And a survivor of this type of abuse could benefit from receiving assistance from a sexual assault lawyer for possible legal proceedings.

Whether it is rape, harassment, or simply unwanted advances, this type of experience can have a devastating effect on the victim’s life — and not just physically and emotionally. Sexual assault victims have difficulty dealing with daily life because of the trauma of the experience. Often, it is necessary to undergo expensive therapy and counseling for a long time afterward. And if there were physical injuries, there are medical expenses to consider, too.

A sexual predator can, and usually is, held accountable by the criminal justice system. However, criminal courts do not award damages, which is why it is important to retain counsel from an experienced sexual assault lawyer.

There is no risk in contacting us to learn more about your rights, and you are under no obligation to retain our services after meeting with our firm.
