Massachusetts Sexual Abuse Lawyer
Each case is unique in the impact that it has on the lives of the people involved. This is particularly true in cases of sexual abuse. At the Boston, Massachusetts law firm of Brody, Hardoon, Perkins & Kesten, LLP, we represent victims of sexual abuse, sexual assault, campus sexual assault, rape, incest, clergy abuse and child sex abuse. On behalf of our clients, we have obtained multi-million dollar awards and settlements and forced countless institutions to improve maintenance, security procedures, and security equipment.
A sample of our sexual assault and abuse cases include:
- A male student at a residential school for troubled adolescents whose therapist had a sexual relationship with him;
- A dentist who fondled his patients’ bodies while they were anesthetized; and
- A young man raped repeatedly as a child by a local priest
Holding Responsible Parties Accountable for Sex Abuse
We seek recovery not only from the criminal, but also from other responsible parties — such as schools, universities, camps, youth centers, residential facilities, employers, property owners, security companies, and religious organizations — whose failure to adequately protect our clients helped the perpetrator commit the crime.
Led by founding partner Laurence Hardoon — a nationally recognized expert on sexual abuse and misconduct — an experienced former prosecutor, BHPK has compassionately represented hundreds of victims of sexual abuse.
The attorneys at BHPK are widely recognized as experts in the field of sexual abuse, having handled many high-profile cases. They and their cases have been featured in the news and on television and radio for such media outlets as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Dateline NBC, 20/20, 48 Hours, and others.
