Sexual abuse occurs in numerous forms and affects many types of victims. Consequently, sexual abuse claims are extremely varied; parents may bring a claim on behalf of a child, or adults may file a claim relating to sexual abuse endured during childhood. No matter the details, sexual abuse claims are extremely sensitive in nature and require the attention of an experienced attorney. The Law Office of Michael D. Herman is dedicated to helping people all across California, including Contra Costa, Alameda, San Mateo, Santa Clara, San Francisco Counties to bring those responsible for the abuse to justice. If you or a loved one is the victim of sexual abuse, please contact The Law Office of Michael D. Herman. We handle all California sex abuse claims on a contingent fee basis. That means you do not pay attorney fees or costs unless we make a recovery for you.
When schools, churches, nursing homes and other organizations fail to protect children and vulnerable adults from sexual predators, the victims often suffer lasting emotional harm. Our team obtains compensation for victims of clergy sex abuse, child molestation, and other types of sexual abuse. In most cases, sexual molestation and abuse occur because an organization failed to take reasonable steps to protect victims. Often churches and other organizations ignore warning signs of sexual abuse — or worse, know about the abuse but do nothing to prevent it.
