Working With Child Sexual Abuse Victims And Families

In child sexual abuse cases, the well-being of the victim is our primary focus. The objective is to give victims a voice, see that justice is served, provide closure, and maximize compensation. Attorney Bartlett recently won a $2,750,000 jury verdict associated with child sexual abuse that occurred over forty years ago.  The victim said the trial brought her vindication, closure and much needed relief. She finally felt it was not her fault.

Perpetrators of sexual abuse often utilize authority positions and the status and trust associated with those positions to befriend and exploit innocent children. Whether at educational institutions such as the Indian Mountain Boarding School in Lakeville CT or Newington High School, religious institutions such as the Catholic Church or the United Church of Christ, or civic organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America, children are taught to respect those in authority positions.  Bartlett Legal Group has the experience to help adult victims of childhood sexual abuse. 

Unwanted sexual contact by a family member adds a particularly emotionally charged dynamic. Clients are encouraged to seek the treatment and counseling they need, either ahead of any legal action or running concurrently with a lawsuit.

We also represent clients with sexual abuse by Boy Scout leaders, priests, medical professionals, teachers and others.  For additional information on types of sexual abuse we specialize in please click on the following links.

CT Foster Parent And Family Member Sexual Abuse Lawyer

Foster parents wishing to open their homes to children should be thoroughly vetted prior to any licensure. Once a child is placed, Connecticut state agencies have the responsibility to provide a licensed and trained social worker to visit the home regularly. Part of that training involves identifying sexual abuse and molestation. Suspicion should lead to immediate investigations and possible removal of the child. Failure of the state’s representative to act not only allows the abuse to continue, but it also puts the state at risk of legal action along with the abusing foster parent.

At the initial consultation, clients receive immediate validation as we spend time with you to understand the events that led you to seeking legal counsel. In cases involving a family member, treatment and counseling is necessary for the victim, abuser and other family members. The focus is to hold the abuser and state agencies, when appropriate, accountable.  When abuse is committed by a foster parent or close relative, additional issues need resolution.  Preserving familial relationships are vital.  The future of a family unit is often at stake and requires attention as well.
