What is Rape?

Rape is more than sex.

It rips apart lives well beyond the physical toll. Persons seeking justice are also trying to facilitate their emotional healing and get their lives back. Often they want to hold abusers accountable and make sure that others are protected so this will never happen to someone else.

When a child or adult is abused or sexually assaulted, the strongest, most experienced representation may be required in order to hold the perpetrators accountable. These are emotional and very complicated cases. The emotional scars from sexual abuse can last a lifetime. Financial compensation can never give a child, woman or man back their innocence. Financial compensation can provide recourses to regain confidence and sense of security and control. It absolutely can help people put their lives back together.  You cannot afford to entrust your case to an inexperienced lawyer or a firm without the resources to see the case to conclusion and zealously fight for you or your child every step of the way.

You control the process. Ask the question. See if you have a case.

We are very candid about the process. We tell you what to expect. No surprises . No pressure. We share likely outcomes. We share the challenges, highlight where we anticipate legal and emotional challenges. Ultimately, it is up to you to determine if you want to move forward at each juncture. We provide options and scenarios and are with you every step of the way.

Recent abuse verses abuse in the distant past.

Courts have recognized that people abused as children often need years to be in an emotional place where they have the cognition and maturity to pursue accountability for an abuser. Even if your abuse happened 30 years ago. Many states have increased the statute of limitations so that adults willing to speak out against child abusers have legal recourse to do so.


The team at Hall Law Associates provide compassionate, candid, legal guidance and determined representation to children and adults who suffer physical or sexual abuse now, and for adults who suffered physical or sexual abuse as a child and are now seeking justice against those who hurt them
