Representing Vulnerable Victims And Their Families
Schools should provide a safe environment for children to learn and grow alongside their peers. When this environment turns dangerous, offenders must be held accountable.
At TJC • ESQ, we have over 30 years of experience holding schools and other institutions accountable after children suffer sexual abuse while in their care. Leveraging our reputation as respected litigators, we can aggressively pursue a civil lawsuit to recover the compensation you deserve. With our considerable experience taking on high-profile cases, you can trust in our ability to maintain your privacy, guard your interests and mitigate media attention when necessary.
Pursuing The Best Interests Of Sexual Abuse Victims
Any sort of abuse to children can cause lasting damage. If you or your child suffers sexual abuse in school, we pursue the best interests of the child by:
- Pursuing compensation for the abuse endured
- Seeking appropriate treatment and recovery measures
- Holding all offenders accountable, including care providers and institutions
While a teacher may have committed the abuse, the school may have been negligent in employing the teacher or not adequately investigating previous complaints. We hold all liable parties accountable to seek the compensation and justice deserved, as well as to prevent abuse of other students.
Fighting For Victims Of Abuse Since 1982
Attorney Tim Conlon first represented children as an assistant public defender in 1982. During this time, he represented those alleged as wayward or delinquent in the Family Court. He then discovered that many of these children were victims of abuse. They were often uncooperative with the limited treatment measures provided to them, which then led to further punitive measures and a recurring sequence of events.
This led Mr. Conlon to prioritize putting the best interests of children first in any case involving abuse, whether physical, emotional or sexual. Now, the lawyers at TJC • ESQ uphold this perspective by seeking justice for victims of sexual abuse in civil court and by obtaining the proper treatment and recovery programs to help them move forward.
