Protecting Victims and Families After Child Sexual Abuse: Los Angeles & Nationwide
Sexual assault or sexual abuse of a child is a monstrous crime. Abuse as a child can cause life-long emotional, psychological, and even physical damage to the child. In most cases, crimes against children are committed by people in positions of trust–teachers, coaches, family members, etc.–rendering the acts even more abhorrent.

It’s Often the Adults Children Trust Most Who Commit the Worst Acts
Children are vulnerable. They are taught to respect their elders and listen to persons of authority. It’s an abhorrent truth, unfortunately, that those people in positions of trust are often those who abuse that trust most flagrantly.
At the Morris Law Firm, we handle claims of child sexual assault aimed at all manner of individuals and institutions, depending upon who committed the acts and whether an institution should have better protected the child against such conduct. We help victims of child sexual abuse and their families bring claims involving:
- Camp counselor abuse
- Boy Scout abuse
- Sex abuse in sports
- Sexual abuse by priests, pastors, and other clergy members
- Foster care abuse
- Parental or family member abuse
If your child has been subjected to abuse, you could have a claim not only against the abuser but also against the institution that was responsible for caring for and protecting your child. If your child was assaulted while under someone else’s watch, the responsible party should be held liable for the devastation their negligence or willful ignorance allowed.
At the Morris Law Firm, we’ll take all parties to task for their part in your child’s abuse, including:
- School districts
- Churches, synagogues, and other places of worship
- Clergy members
- Teachers, coaches, and other educational staff
- Athletic coaches
- Hospitals and medical networks
- Daycare centers
- Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts
