Trusted Personal Injury Attorneys Deliver Dedicated Legal Service If You Are Sexually Abused
Confidential, Knowledgeable Legal Team Protects Your Rights And Pursues Compensation On Your Behalf
Sexual abuse is a horrific crime that carries long-time consequences for its victims. With an established history of obtaining significant money damages for victims of sexual assault, Schochor, Federico and Staton, P.A. offers you the resources of a highly-reputable, trusted law firm that stands up to the individuals and institutions who commit wrongful acts and makes them pay.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in three women and one in six men will experience some kind of physical sexual violence during their lives. As people who have been victimized find their voice as a result of the #MeToo movement, our law firm has been on the forefront of the legal fight to obtain money damages for those who suffer sexual abuse.
Sexual Abuse In The United States—And In Your Community
Communities across the US are beginning to accept the stories told by victims of being inappropriately touched, assaulted, and raped by their teachers, clergy, and healthcare providers. As advocates for those who are injured by the negligence and harmful intent of others, our law firm has historically fought and won cases against those who harmed women, children, and others. Two of these cases involved physicians, including:
- Earl Bradley: This Delaware pediatrician was convicted in 2011 of sexually assaulting his former patients. Our class action lawsuit recovered $123 million for more than 900 child victims of sexual abuse. Dr. Bradley was sentenced to 14 consecutive life terms plus another 164 years in prison.
- Nikita Levy: An obstetrician and gynecologist at Johns Hopkins Community Medicine in Baltimore committed suicide after allegations of his abuse of patients came to light. More than 8,000 women were believed to have been abused during his 25-year tenure with the hospital. Heading the class-action lawsuit in this case, our firm achieved a $190 million settlement for his victims.
These high-profile cases and those currently in the news offer support to those who have quietly suffered rape, sexual coercion, assault, and harassment. Our law firm offers strong, seasoned legal support to children, women, and men who suffer this abuse.

If you have suffered sexual abuse, you may wonder about obtaining justice for the terrible harm done to you. When you take your concerns to the police, a criminal investigation is initiated. Our firm develops and pursues strong civil actions against the perpetrators who harm and abuse our clients.
These are civil personal injury cases and settlement or successful verdict in a civil case involves money compensation, not a criminal sentence. While a criminal investigation may yield jail or prison time for the person who harmed you, we fight hard for money damages for our clients to assist in the healing process and to help deter these painful crimes.
Sexual assault takes many forms and it can happen to anyone. The person who assaulted you may be someone you never thought would hurt you, and that no one would ever suspect. You may have been afraid to say anything for many reasons. The individual may have been connected to a school, church, or other organization that seemed too big for you to make a complaint. We understand and we can help.
