Our attorneys have nearly 40 years of combined experience representing hundreds of victims of sexual abuse and other crimes. At Crew Janci LLP, we focus our practice on representing victims of sexual abuse and other crimes. Our attorneys have been honored to advocate for children and adults who have suffered sexual abuse, exploitation, and other crimes throughout the United States (and beyond).
Each victim has a unique story about what happened and the impact it has had on their life (and often also on the life of their loved ones). At Crew Janci LLP, we understand that serving victims of trauma requires a special approach. We continually strive to provide trauma-informed services to victims. We take a wholistic approach that recognizes the pervasive impacts of trauma across many areas of life, including mental, emotional, physical, relational, spiritual, and financial.
We regularly consult with survivors who simply need to break their silence and talk to someone. We have built a team of caring professionals that are trained and experienced in sensitively supporting trauma victims – including several Masters-level social workers who serve as trauma-informed intake specialists on our team Often, our a team member of Crew Janci LLP’s may be is the first person the a survivor has ever told. Sometimes the call comes from the parent of a victim who is still a child; other times, the victim is well into adulthood. Sometimes, it has been decades since the abuse happened; other times, the call comes the same day.Some victims who contact us may ultimately decide not to pursue legal claims at all, and in those circumstances, we view it as our job– and an honor – to walk alongside, to listen, to suggest counselors or other resources, and to support them in their process of healing.
Lawsuits are a tough business. There is no “one size fits all” approach that works for every survivor. For many people, pursuing civil justice is an important and helpful step on the journey of healing and recovery from sexual violence and other crimes. It is our job to help survivors fully understand their options, the challenges and difficulties they will face, and what can be accomplished along the way – including monetary compensation and nonmonetary justice (like an apology, the release of particular information about a perpetrator, a policy change, or a similar goal).
