Sexual Abuse Lawyer

Sexual abuse is incredibly traumatic and the physical, emotional, and psychological impact that it leaves on the individual is devastating. According to RAINN, the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network, sexual abuse occurs every 68 seconds in the United States. There is no excuse for these heinous incidents and every victim deserves top care and legal representation for their case. It is also extremely disheartening that many organizations fail to protect victims from the abuse and even take shocking measures to cover up the abuse after it has occurred. Sexual abuse can happen anywhere, from schools, corporate workplaces, youth-based institutions, etc. At TopDog Law, we are committed to standing up to these organizations and holding them accountable for their actions.

More on Sexual Abuse

The prevalence of sexual abuse in our society is jarring. On average, 463,634 victims aged 12 or older are sexually abused every year. For children under 18, 1 in 9 girls and 1 in 53 boys have experienced sexual abuse. Far too often, sexual abuse has taken place within a business or institution that had the resources to prevent the abuse from occurring in the first place.

Sexual Abuse can happen anywhere, such as:

  • K-12 schools, public and private
  • Colleges
  • Religious Institutions
  • Juvenile Facilities/Detention Centers
  • Childcare facilities
  • Foster homes
  • Hospitals
Many victims do not report their abuse, for they often fear negative reactions from loved ones and/
or retaliation from the abusers themselves. Victims deserve the utmost compassion when they do decide to come forward.

The Devereux Lawsuit

We are actively representing a shocking case against the Devereux Foundation and its affiliated organizations for its heinous crimes against children at Devereux facilities across the Philadelphia Main Line.

Our initial filing of 13 survivors who experienced sexual abuse as minors was the largest survivor group lawsuit filed against Devereux to date. Case details reveal a history of systemic abuse inflicted by multiple Devereux employees. Instead of taking action to fix the abusive culture within the organization and help victims, Devereux has chosen to sweep its crimes under the rug. Subsequent to our initial lawsuit filing, we have since filed additional lawsuits against Devereux and it’s affiliates.

Sex Trafficking

Sex trafficking is a crime which involves using force, fraud, or coercion to make individuals sell sex through pornography or prostitution. Victims often live in deplorable conditions and are regularly subject to violence. In many cases, victims might not be aware that they are victims due to the manipulative tactics employed by sex traffickers.

According to the International Labor Organization, 3.8 million adults and 1.0 million children are trafficked for commercial sexual exploitation, making sex trafficking a problem that is much more pervasive than the general public is aware of. If you or someone you know has been a victim of sex trafficking,
