Have You Been Sexually Abused?

Sexual abuse, also known as sexual assault, is unwanted sexual contact without that person’s consent. Sexual abuse, occurring at most any age, leaves an array of emotional scars that can last a lifetime and damage the victim’s quality of life.

Sexual Abuse Legal Actions

You should consult a Steamboat Springs lawyer experienced in sexual abuse civil cases. Your lawyer can form your case, determine the amount of past, present, and future damages for counseling and other treatments, punitive damages, and serve as your representative in negotiations with the perpetrator. If your perpetrator is convicted criminally, that can help your case.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney’s track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
