Is there a higher level of trust in our culture than that which we as parents place in the hands of our schools' teachers, coaches and administrators? If you've worried and wondered whether those in charge of your children during school hours are capable of criminally and sexually abusing them, the sad fact is that they are and have been. Too many loving families have discovered this firsthand, and have been devastated by the realization that a teacher has sexually abused their child.

Experience, Reputation, Results
Our insightful investigators will help uncover facts about the conditions that led to your abuse by a teacher, the people who carried it out and those whose neglect promoted an atmosphere of cruelty. In most cases of school environment sex abuse, both individuals and agencies converge, intentionally or not, in events that pave the way for patterns of abuse.
Schools and school districts frequently fail to use adequate care in screening personnel, turn a blind eye to warning signs of an individual's behavior, or cover-up a teacher's or coach's inappropriate behavior. Reports of abuse also may have been ignored. In other words, an abuser sometimes has an unwitting supporting cast that also bears responsibility for the wrongs done to you.
Students who have been abused by a teacher and are reading this should know that what happened to you was not your fault. You can send a message to those who mistreated you by contacting law enforcement right away. Taking that important first step toward exposing your abusers can help make sure they don't hurt others in the future.
You can trust our dedicated, caring attorneys to thoroughly investigate your case and single out every person or institution that is in any way responsible for your abuse. We'll work hard to recover the compensation you deserve. We've helped many others in your position for 30 years.
