California Lawyers for Sex Abuse Survivors
Athletic coaches occupy positions of trust, influence and authority in children's lives. Most are honest, hard working individuals who do a great deal of good for the young boys and girls they work with. Some, unfortunately, are simply sexual predators who think only of themselves and their own depraved needs.
Victims of sexual abuse by sports coaches often suffer deep emotional wounds and psychological injuries that leave them unable to trust or maintain fulfilling relationships with others. Self-destructive behaviors are also common, due to the debilitating sense of personal shame and low self-worth survivors are left with.
At the Law Offices of Joseph C. George, Ph.D. we have been dedicated to helping survivors of childhood sexual abuse since 1986 and have successfully represented many people who have had experiences similar to your own. Working together, we can provide the understanding, support and experienced legal help you need to expose the abuse, find justice and obtain compensation for the harms that have been inflicted on you.
Timing is often critical in these cases because some coaches are employed by the government-run institutions, such as schools or park districts. What this means is that you have very little time (usually six months) to provide notice of your intent to file a lawsuit.
Has the six month time limit already expired? We have run into this problem in several of our previous child sex abuse cases and have been able to use our experience and creativity to overcome it. But even when we know it will be difficult to get around the statute of limitations, we believe that exposing the predator who abused you is more than worth the time and effort it takes to try.

If you were sexually abused by an athletic coach or believe that this may have happened to your son or daughter, blaming yourself is not the answer. Neither is keeping quiet and remaining isolated from the world around you. Acknowledging the abuse and confronting those who harmed you is.
