And we have the investigators, medical and legal professionals and access to the child–care experts who can do something about it. At the Hollander Law Firm, we will not only pursue a civil claim for damages against those responsible, we will also assist families in navigating the criminal court system, where additional victim’s assistance, restitution and other resources may be available.
While stopping the abuse is critical, stopping the abuser or institution from victimizing other children is also vitally important. And, while authorities often vigorously pursue such cases, having an experienced civil attorney advocate for the rights of you and your family can help ensure your case is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Handling Different Child Molestation Cases
In today’s media environment, allegations of child molestation are often tirelessly pursued by the media. While reporters usually do an admirable job of protecting the identity of sexual–assault victims, dealing with the media can be intimidating and missteps can be costly.
At the Hollander Law Firm, our child molestation lawyer assists Boca Raton residents and others by providing comprehensive representation, dealing with members of the media, working with prosecutors, and consulting the investigators and medical and legal experts necessary to build your case and help ensure the future well–being of an abused child.
Child–molestation and sexual assault cases handled by the Hollander Law Firm include:
- Sexual assault at daycare
- Abuse by relative, caregiver or friend
- Abuse by members of the clergy
- Sexual assault by teacher or coach
- Failure of institution to conduct proper background checks
- Internet crimes
In addition to the accused child molester, our staff will conduct a through investigation of your case and may be able to determine whether a church, school, daycare center or other organization should also be held responsible.
When these entities negligently hire a child predator, they can and should be held accountable, both to ensure you are fairly compensated and to ensure they are held to a higher standard, which can help prevent future abuse from occurring.
