Sexual Abuse Lawyer Los Angeles

Adults suffer from sexual abuse in a number of ways, and each is entitled by law and principle to hold the offending party responsible, and a Los Angeles attorney can help.

At The Law Office of Marvin S. Lanter, I know that thousands of innocent people are suffering from the shame and anxiety these cases cause. I take pride in being a compassionate and dedicated attorney. I want you to know that it is not your fault that someone has taken advantage of you, and that you have the right to hold them accountable. People in the position of power, including clergy members, teachers, mentors and supervisors sometimes use their influence to hurt others through sexual abuse. I am an advocate for the victims, and want to help them recover financially to pay for the help they need to heal from these injurious scenarios.

I provide a caring ear to understand your personal circumstances, beginning with a free consultation. I know that you are already hurting, and may suffer from depression, anxiety and shame. As an attorney, I am here to help you and not judge you. I am only focused on holding the offender responsible for their heinous crimes against you.  I will do everything I can to help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Sexual Abuse is a Crime

I want to make it very clear to any victim who I represent that they have been harmed during the commission of a crime. Not only are you suffering at the hands of someone you trusted, but keeping quiet about the assault is only allowing him or her continue breaking the law. I want to help you hold your abuser responsible for their behavior, while pursuing a financial settlement on your behalf that will allow you to get the help you need to recover, before returning to work or school until you are ready.

Common sexual abusers are often people in power who want to control their victims to help maintain their position. Some of the positions I have pursued for our sexual abuse clients include:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychologists
  • Therapists
  • Clergy Members Mentors
  • Professors
  • Supervisors
  • Volunteer Organization Leaders

I cannot stress enough that if you are a victim of sexual abuse that it is absolutely not your fault, and that I want to help you hold the offending party responsible — no matter your relationship with him or her.

A Compassionate Sexual Abuse Advocate

At The Law Office of Marvin S. Lanter, I provide complete confidentiality which allows my clients to discuss their circumstances in a safe environment. I know that you are frightened by the idea of confronting your abuser, and I will provide the guidance you need to stand up to your abuser with confidence and a commitment to successfully holding him or her responsible for their actions.

A financial settlement will go a long way in providing the help you need to heal and move forward on a positive note.  Sexual abuse victims can use the money I pursue from their abusers for numerous reasons, including:

  • Advanced treatment and therapy
  • Extended time off work
  • Lost wages while struggling with the anxiety of abuse
  • Medical care
  • Pain and suffering
  • Prescription costs

The extent of your physical and emotional injuries should be evaluated by medical professionals, which will allow my firm to obtain the best settlement possible on your behalf. I do not believe that you should suffer for a minute longer, including paying any expenses out of pocket or losing wages because of your inability to cope with a working environment. I want to provide you with a complete settlement that will help you get your life back.
