Sexual Assault

One out of four women and one out of six men will experience some form of sexual assault during their lifetime. Many of these assaults involve college students and young adults. Many also involve persons known to the victim, including teachers, priests, and other adults in a position of trust. Not surprisingly, many victims are reluctant to report sexual assaults, and because of the shame and stigma associated with sexual assault, may delay report being assaulted. Fortunately, because of the #metoo movement and more widespread media coverage of sexual assault, more victims of sexual assault are willing to come forward and speak out. From a legal perspective, it is important to remember that there are differences between the crime of sexual assault and a civil case seeking to recover money damages for sexual assault, including the statutes of limitations (the time for when a lawsuit must be brought), the burden of proof, and the consequences to the person accused. It is also important to remember that particularly when it comes to cases involving sexual assault, the decision whether or not to pursue a lawsuit is one that is highly personal and not to be taken lightly. Our office has experience handling cases involving sexual assault, and treats any inquiries regarding claims of sexual assault as fully confidential. If you have been sexually assaulted and are considering legal action, call us for a free consultation.

Client Reviews
We had the misfortune of being sued for fraud on the sale of a business. David Pollack navigated our defense expertly, professionally and with just the right amount of passion. Our case went all the way to trial and we truly believe we would not have won our case if not for David's tireless defense strategies and flawless execution. Sophie L.
I was up against a huge corporation and David Pollack and his team fought for me every step of the way to a very successful resolution. David was honest and straightforward in every way and I am forever grateful to the entire firm for their professionalism, tireless work and the compassion they showed me during a very stressful and difficult journey. I have no reservations in recommending David Pollack and his amazing team! JJ KB
