Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse is traumatic and damaging no matter who the attacker is or what the circumstances are. Almost anyone can be the victim of sexual abuse. It does not matter how big or small a person is, whether they are male or female, young or old, or from what socioeconomic class they come from, unfortunately, almost anyone can be a victim of this kind of abuse.

It is hard for most people to fathom that there are people who can sexually abuse others and it is especially hard to fathom people would do this to a child or a person that cannot defend themselves and/or tell others what has happened because of a disability, illness or condition. When sexual abuse comes from someone who is known and trusted such as from a caregiver, coach, teacher, relative, or spiritual leader, it is likely to create lifelong psychological, emotional, and sexual scarring.

Doing this may not only help to get a sexual abuse victim compensation from the malicious party that did this and/or from other parties whose negligence may have contributed to the attack(s) being able to occur, but it may help to prevent others from having to go through similar sexual abuse in the future.

Criminal vs Civil Sexual Abuse Cases

Sexually abusing someone is a crime that can be punishable with jail time and other court assigned penalties. Only the government can charge and convict a person of a crime. Even if a person witnesses a crime and/or has proof of who committed the crime, they cannot press criminal charges themselves nor can they force the government to do so.

A person who is charged with a crime may also be subjected to being sued in a civil lawsuit by the party or parties that were affected by the crime. It does not matter whether the criminal defendant is found innocent or guilty of their crime, they may still be named as a defendant in a civil suit. If criminal charges are pending, typically, the criminal case must be settled before any civil cases can go to court.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
