You have been sexually assaulted at work. Your well-meaning friends tell you there’s nothing to be done about it. They are wrong. The law has answers.
Your friends say it will be traumatic; in fact, handled appropriately, it can be empowering.
No one should have to endure sexual misconduct, especially in the workplace. No one has to.
We want to hear from survivors, and we start with the presumption that the survivor’s story is true.
We take a trauma-informed approach to all matters. You can feel free to bring supportive friends or family members to our meeting. We are also happy to meet in a public location of your choosing. The process should never be about re-traumatizing survivors.
Not only is this one of our foremost practice areas, but we are constantly forging new ground. We routinely act for people who have been turned away by other lawyers. We reject outdated, misogynistic laws. We say it is time for the law to evolve to reflect the times and give survivors realistic recourse as a matter of justice, rather than protect those who abuse their power and demean their employees with sexual misconduct. Perhaps predictably, nobody seems to want to defend against that position, so we have no trial results…yet. We do, however, have a number of six-figure settlements in our record, undoubtedly with more to come.
For a variety of reasons, we are not willing to defend these actions on behalf of the person committing the assault.
