Pawares “Mr. Mac” Pathompornvivat

A Call for Witnesses: Survivors of Accused Sexual Abuser “Mr. Mac” Pawares Pathompornvivat

We are a law firm dedicated to representing victims of sexual abuse, and we are currently seeking individuals who may have been impacted by the actions of “Mr. Mac” Pawares Pathompornvivat, a former teacher at Franklin High School in Seattle.

What has been reported about the teacher sexual abuse?

According to recent news reports, Mr. Pathompornvivat has been accused of engaging in a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student at the school. The alleged abuse is said to have occurred between 2016 and 2017.

Are there other victims of Mr. Pathompornvivat’s crimes?

We believe that there may be other victims of Mr. Pathompornvivat who have not yet come forward. If you or someone you know has been a student at Franklin High School during this time and may have been subjected to sexual misconduct by Mr. Pathompornvivat, we encourage you to contact us for a confidential consultation.

We understand that coming forward about abuse can be difficult and traumatic, but we want to assure you that our team is here to support you every step of the way. Our experienced attorneys are dedicated to helping survivors of sexual abuse seek justice and compensation for the harm they have suffered.

I was abused in the past, but it was long ago and I was a minor. Can I still sue?

Most likely. In Washington State, a special statute of limitations allows many victims of childhood sexual abuse to file lawsuits for the abuse they suffered many years later, even as adults. That law recognizes that survivors of childhood sexual abuse may not realize or appreciate how the sexual abuse harmed them until much later in life. If you were sexually abused by Mr. Pathompornvivat, please contact us so that we can confidentially explain your legal options.

Can a parent sue on behalf of a child?

Yes. The experienced attorneys at PCVA have worked with hundreds of families to seek damages for sexual abuse in a wide range of cases. Our attorneys use a trauma-informed approach to their legal counsel and rely on trauma-informed experts to help build the case. Our goal is to help survivors and their families recover damages from the institutions that failed to protect them from sexual abuse so they can begin to heal.

How can sexual abuse survivors seek damages?

Our attorneys have been involved in some of the most complicated and concerning sexual abuse cases in the country and are often consulted by other law firms for guidance and expertise when representing sexual abuse survivors. We take a trauma-informed approach to our representation that acknowledges the sensitive nature of these cases.

Every case is different and results – which depend on the facts of the case – cannot be guaranteed. However, we will fight to hold accountable the institutions and individuals who failed to protect survivors. Through our efforts, we have helped recover hundreds of millions of dollars in damages on behalf of abuse survivors. While no amount of monetary compensation can erase the trauma of abuse, the financial assistance can help pay for necessary expenses to allow the healing process to begin.

If you or someone you know has experienced sexual abuse or assault at the hands of Pawares Pathompornvivat, our attorneys are here to listen and help. Schedule a no obligation consultation with one of our lawyers by completing our online form or calling us at (253) 948-3199 or (206) 536-2850. All conversations are completely confidential.
