California Child Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Attorney Advocates for Survivors of Sexual Abuse

Law Offices in Los Angeles | Orange County | Sacramento

Whether you think of yourself as a survivor of sexual abuse or as a victim — what happened wasn't your fault. If you're a parent feeling guilty for somehow "letting" your son or daughter be abused, don't continue to beat yourself up — you didn't know; you simply trusted a person or place you had no reason not to trust.

In neither case are you alone or without a place you can turn to for help.

The Courage to Speak Out, the Power to Move Forward...

At the Law Offices of Joseph C. George, Ph.D., we focus solely on helping victims of sexual abuse and mental health malpractice, primarily in the state of California. Our Los Angeles attorneys have been committed to this work since 1986. More than anything, we respect the courage our clients show in acknowledging past sexual abuse and the strength they show in reclaiming their own lives while taking action to prevent future abuse.

Statute of Limitations: California generally requires victims to file child sexual abuse lawsuits before the age of 26 or within three years of the date of discovery, whichever is later. This is a complicated and technical area of law.

Los Angeles Attorney: A Unique Understanding of the Damages Suffered by Child Sex Abuse Victims

Prior to founding this law firm in 1986, Joseph C. George earned a Ph.D. in psychology and was an active duty clinical psychologist in the United States Air Force for 12 years. During that time he learned much about the psychological and emotional injuries associated with child sexual abuse, and later even helped write some of the laws that apply to these cases.

Today, Dr. George's experience and training as a clinical psychologist enables us to better understand, support and represent survivors of sexual abuse. It is also a unique asset that provides our firm with the critical edge needed to maximize compensation for our clients.

  • Were you sexually abused? +

    You are not alone. Most professionals in the field of abuse estimate from 8% to 20% of the US population have been sexually abused as children. While it is impossible to turn back time, it is very possible to turn the tables and bring justice to the perpetrator or those entitiles who enabled them.
  • How long do I have to file a lawsuit? +

    Within the state of California, victims of child sexual abuse must file a lawsuit before their 26th birthday or within three years of the date of discovery, whichever is later. Note, however, that if the abuse took place at a public school or in some other type of government-run facility, time limits may be as short as six months from discovery.
  • What are the financial costs? +

    Nothing. We handle all cases on a contingency fee basis, so you pay no fees to us unless we recover compensation for you.
  • Is this confidential? +

    Yes. We never share information and we take all necessary steps to ensure that your privacy is protected. Our clients talk to us about their personal experiences and the potential legal claims they have, under the protection of the security and privacy they deserve.
