If you need advice or just want someone to listen who is on your side, we can help.

Sexual abuse and exploitation comes in many forms. Each victim has a unique experience. We regularly consult with survivors of sexual abuse that simply need to break their silence and talk to someone confidentially. Often, our team member is the first person the survivor has ever told. Our dedicated trauma-informed intake specialist (a trained social worker) strives to direct all victims to helpful resources.

The attorneys from Crew Janci LLP are proud to have obtained many significant monetary settlement and awards for many of our clients. These results are important for two reasons. First, they have provided our clients some of the restitution and symbolic justice they deserve for what they have suffered. Second, these results – coupled with non-monetary demands – force institutions to change their policies and practices to better protect the vulnerable. Through these and other results, our clients have helped bring about positive social change and made the future safer for kids.
