California Lawyers for Child Sexual Abuse and Incest Victims
It may take decades before a survivor of child sex abuse is able to acknowledge what happened or even remember that it did. In the life that happened in between, shame, anger and other powerful emotions most likely made it very difficult for them to maintain personal relationships or refrain from self-destructive behavior. Making this connection is where many victims begin the process of reclaiming their own lives.
At the Law Offices of Joseph C. George,Ph.D. in Sacramento and Los Angeles, California, we help survivors of childhood sexual abuse confront their abusers and also the organizations or individuals who enabled or could have put a stop to it. Our law firm has been dedicated to this work since 1986. We have handled cases statewide and in other states as well. We are here to listen and provide the help you need too. We can also provide referrals to therapists in your area whom we have worked with in our practice.
Dr. Joseph C. George holds both a law degree and a Ph.D. in psychology. His training, background and unique understanding of the emotional and psychological injuries caused by sexual abuse provides the critical edge we need to maximize compensation for our clients today.
The Power to Change
Filing a lawsuit won't change the past but it can change your future for the better and improve your quality of life. It can also bring about positive changes in society that will help to prevent other children from being abused in the future.
- Speaking out can stop an abuser from continuing to create new victims.
- Holding employers accountable for the acts of their employees encourages them to scrutinize job applicants more closely.
- Seeking justice from individuals or institutions that should have reported suspected abuse but didn't, reinforces the mandatory duty to report for others.
- Pursuing compensation from the businesses, institutions and organizations that enabled or tried to cover up your abuser's crimes encourages internal change and sends a strong message to others.
