Assault by a Trusted Individual

Sexual Assault by a Trusted Individual

We Provide Compassionate Legal Support for Victims of Sexual Abuse

The trauma from a sexual assault can linger with the survivor well after of the assault has occurred. This trauma can make getting through everyday tasks an excruciating burden that keeps the assault victim from achieving any sense of normalcy.

Unfortunately, many perpetrators of sexual assaults are in a position of power. From doctors to members of the church, people in positions of power will sometimes exert their authority over their potential victims to coerce them into thinking that the sexual abuse never occurred.

At the Denver Trial Lawyers ®, we encourage victims of sexual assaults to hold their abusers accountable. Our team is dedicated to pursuing justice and compensation for the physical, psychological, and emotional pain that has been inflicted on sexual assault victims by people in positions of power.
