Abusing a child is a horrendous act that too often goes unpunished. Whether the mistreatment occurred recently or years earlier, victims often bear physical and emotional scars. At Thorley Defense Law in Seattle, I take effective action to obtain compensation from abusers so that clients can obtain a measure of justice for the harm they have suffered. I have experience litigating claims for plaintiffs throughout Seattle Washington and provide comprehensive support to victimized children and their families. Though I understand how difficult it can be to pursue these matters in civil actions, I will guide you with compassion at every stage of the legal process.
In many cases, numerous parties are responsible for abuse that is directed toward children. My firm conducts a thorough investigation of what occurred and works to hold all liable individuals and entities accountable, including:
No matter how complex these legal matters might be, I never forget the emotional aspect of these cases and deliver steady guidance as I work to resolve your claim.
Many victims are discouraged from filing child abuse lawsuits because the allegations can be very hard to prove. Whether the case involves a young witness or actions that occurred several years ago, defendants and their attorneys often take drastic actions to discredit testimony and evidence. As an experienced lawyer, I have a deep background in these matters and know how to counter these defense tactics. When it is useful, I bring in medical experts and other qualified witnesses to corroborate a victim’s account so that I can maximize the likelihood of a fair verdict or settlement.
