4 Things To Know About Sexual Abuse Cases
Whether you’ve experienced sexual abuse recently or long ago, PCVA’s team of highly skilled lawyers can help you explore your legal options. Understanding that you and your loved ones may have many questions before talking to a lawyer, we offer you our reassurance about the following topics that may be on your mind:
- You can turn to us and work with us to achieve justice in your sexual abuse case completely confidentially. Considering the sensitive nature of sexual abuse, many survivors hesitate to report that they have suffered out of a desire to remain anonymous. We have helped many survivors obtain substantial compensation in sexual abuse cases without having their names publicly disclosed. We will gladly explain how we protect your privacy from the very first consultation with us.
- You are not alone. The shame, secrecy, self-doubt, self-blame and other destructive forces that you have struggled against since you were sexually abused are very common. You may find some healing through discovering the commonality of your experience — and by bringing your assailant(s) to justice. We have worked with many clients to help them find justice and relief after suffering abuse by scout leaders, Catholic and Protestant clergy members, teachers, coaches and others whom they had trusted. We can do the same for you.
- We pledge to treat you with nothing but respect and understanding. If you choose to work with us, we will approach our work with you with the respect and compassion you deserve, while we seek to bring your assailant(s) to justice.
- There is no charge to talk with us or to engage us in your pursuit for justice. Initial consultations are free, as are all conversations after. If we win your case, our remuneration will come as a portion of the settlement or verdict, payable at the end of the case. You will not owe attorney fees until we recover compensation for you.
We are here to answer your questions, offer our reassurance and then get to work building a case on your behalf.
