Sexual Assault

Me too.

A phrase uttered far to frequently.  Sadly,  1 out of 5 people will be the victim of sexual assault.    Odds of an assault are even higher if you or someone you love is disabled.  You never thought it would happen to you or your child.  Getting the care you need at this critical time is paramount to getting your life back.  We understand and we can help.

You likely have as many questions  as really powerful emotions.

Our clients have shared a few of their early thoughts… …

“I just want to know my options.  I don’t even know if I want to do this.  Do I have a case?  What would it be like to move forward and hold them accountable?

It was supposed to be a normal date.  I don’t sue- I’m not that person.   I didn’t do a rape kit so the police cant help me.  It was years ago… I was just a child.

Its not fair. They wont believe me.  I don’t want everyone to know.   I’m not strong enough to do a trial.”

We provide information on the law.  You control the process.  We don’t move forward without your understanding or permission.  You are an integral part of the team.

We are especially proud to wear the white hat for our clients .  Sometimes our  clients elect NOT to move forward with a case and that’s okay too. We understand and are honored to give you a voice as you ask the question.   Do I have a case…?   There is no charge for the consultation.  In fact,  you pay no fees or costs unless we win.

Our main goal is to offer compassion , hope and knowledge.  We will tell you exactly what to expect.  We can work with your medical team to help collect facts, build a case and determine a course of action that best fits your needs.   We believe in restorative justice.  We know that money will not erase this.

For some people…just asking the question is the first step in healing.  For others they want their day in court and to publicly hold a predator accountable .  But for most people justice is somewhere in the middle.  They are in need of help and money can solve some of their problems.  Money for therapy.  Money to reimburse you for needed time off to heal.    Our wins have included revocation of medical licenses,  sale of bad guys home,  recovery of monies for medical expenses,  lost time from work.  And compensation including pain and suffering.   We can file under Jane Doe status so that your identity is protected.

So how do you start?  Just ask the question…

We do initial consults by phone or where ever you are most comfortable.  Meetings can be in public places such as restaurants,  in your home with family members or here in the privacy of our offices with a member of our female staff present.   Text us at 860-961-7100


What is Assault? Assault is the infliction of bodily injury on a person with willful intent to hurt or injure that person. If you have been caused bodily harm, touched by another human being in a way that was unwelcome, or had someone enter your home with intention to hurt you, you need to seek justice on your behalf.  The law firm of Hall Johnson specialize in representing victims of abuse and assault in Connecticut and Rhode Island.

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 back its innocence or an adult back their freedom, but it may help victims of assault and abuse 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 fight for you or your child every step of the way.

The attorneys at Hall Law Associates provide compassionate 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.  Our attorneys understand how hard it is for victims to pursue legal action against those who molested, raped or abused them, but the team at Hall Johnson is trained in handling these emotional issues as delicately as possible, especially when children are involved. Because sexual predators are likely to be repeat offenders, you cannot afford to let your case go unhandled. Trust the Rhode Island and Connecticut Assault and Abuse Attorneys at Hall Law for your most sensitive claims.

Sexual assault, rape, date rape, indecency with a child or pornography are truly some of the worst violations against a child or adult.

Sexual assault inflicts a terrible toll on victims and on their families. The long-term effects of abuse include fear, anxiety, depression, hostility, inappropriate sexual behavior, poor self-esteem, tendency toward substance abuse, and difficulty with close relationships. Sexual victimization profoundly interferes with the developmental process, and the effects last well into one’s adulthood.

Sexual assault cases are filled with emotion. We build your case based on the facts. You are entitled to compensation for the psychological damages you and those close to you have suffered, and our firm can refer you to psychiatrists and psychologists who are experienced in both identifying and counseling victims of sexual abuse.
