In Canada, 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 8 men will experience some sort of sexual assault in their lifetime. Coming forward takes courage and strength, but you are not alone. Let us help amplify your voice and reclaim your life.
Sexual abuse and assault can occur in many forms. It can happen to people of any gender, at any age, and in a variety of contexts. Some victims are chosen randomly or targeted by strangers or someone they have just met. Often, the perpetrator is known to the victim and is in a position of trust, such as a family member, teacher, coach, or religious figure. There are times when those who are responsible to protect us from harm and abuse fail to do so. Regardless of the circumstances of the assault or abuse, there are common elements, such as breach of trust, abuse of power, and victimization, which can have a devastating effect on survivors and their lives.
Our team collectively has decades of experience advocating for survivors of sexual assault and abuse. We understand the widespread emotional and physical harm it causes and the effect on all aspects of your life – relationships, work and education, health, and the overall diminishment of your quality of life. We know that recovery can take years of expensive therapy, medications, and other treatment. If you are a survivor of sexual assault or abuse, you are entitled to compensation for these losses. We specialize in guiding our clients through the legal process with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. Our expertise, skill, and professionalism allows us to fearlessly pursue the vindication, accountability, and closure you deserve.
