Sexual Abuse

Giving Sexual Abuse Victims a Voice

It takes an incredible amount of courage for a victim of sexual abuse or sexual misconduct to come forward and make the abuse public. While a perpetrator may go to jail, many people do not realize that the perpetrator is not the only person or entity that can be held accountable – a survivor can also have a civil lawsuit against parties who are responsible for not preventing the abuse, or not protecting the victim from the abuse.

For example, Founding Attorney Ray Dearie obtained an $8,000,000 verdict against the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services for its negligent investigation of the victims’ foster family and negligent placement of the victims with their foster family. Aside from the State and its agencies, the Dearie Law Group has also fought for sexual abuse survivors who were failed by school districts, counties and their agencies, among other entities.

The attorneys at the Dearie Law Group understand that a sexual abuse survivor’s healing involves so much more than a civil lawsuit or criminal conviction. We work to get justice for brave survivors of these acts, and fight to protect and advocate for victims.

If you or a loved one has been victimized by a sexual abuser, or been ignored by someone who was in a position to stop the abuse, contact the Dearie Law Group. We are here to fight for you.
