Were You Sexually Abused? You Deserve an Attorney Who Will Be on Your Side

Sexual Abuse in Private Schools

Trustworthy San Francisco Child Sexual Abuse Lawyer

Many parents assume that their children will be protected from harm if they are enrolled into a private schooling system. Unfortunately, such misinformation and assumptions have led to devastating trauma for many families. The fact of the matter remains that sexual abuse can happen anywhere and anytime, and sometimes it can occur within the walls of a private school.

Your trust has been breached, and most importantly, your child's innocence has been violated in an unforgiveable and unjust way. At The Matiasic Firm, we know how to work with clients who have not simply been harmed but who have had their lives completely turned upside down and disrupted. Our attorneys know that there are few things more valuable to your family than compassion, sensitivity, and trust. At this time, we can help you regain your footing and take legal action to address the harm inflicted on your child.

Advocating for Children in Any Type of Sexual Abuse Case

Our firm can be trusted to successfully guide you through the one of the most emotionally charged areas of law. Many instances of private school abuse go unreported due to an environment of secrecy, but we stand ready to advocate for the rights of individuals who wish to step forward.

We have represented families of children who attend various types of private schools, including:

  • Private schools owned or established by church organizations
  • Privately owned preschools or elementary schools
  • Privately owned junior high schools and high schools
  • Private all-girls schools and private all-boys schools
  • Boarding schools and orphanages

We understand the nuances and complications of the law and we know how to be successful advocates of our clients' rights. We can be trusted advisors, guides, and partners during complex cases. Because we are members of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum® and have extensive trial experience, our attorneys know how to win cases in the face of adversity and challenge. We can conduct thorough investigations into any San Francisco private school and maintain our relationship of client-attorney trust at a time when trust means so much for your family.

Do not be afraid to step forward! Reach out today!

Without a doubt, child sexual abuse in the private school system is one of the greatest acts of injustice inflicted upon society's most vulnerable members. We have been the advocates of children and adolescents who have been sexually abused and molested by trusted adults and authority figures. Taking a stand against abuse offers not only the possibility of moving forward from a traumatic chapter in your child's life, but opens the road up to recovery and helping others avoid a similar threat of abuse.

Our experience in litigating high-profile and highly emotional sex abuse cases in San Francisco and throughout Northern California has helped numerous clients move forward after unspeakable injustices have been committed against them.
