Sexual Abuse

No one should have to experience sexual assault or abuse of any kind, however, statistics show one in three women and one in six men will become victims at some point in their lives. Only 5% of those victims will report their abuse to the police.

We understand the emotional turmoil sexual abuse can have on both men and women, and just how difficult it can be to report abuse, much less take legal action against the abuser. Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible by working with you at every step.

Did you know we don’t have to involve the police, and you can bring a civil claim seeking a monetary award for the pain and suffering, lost wages and treatment costs instead? Even compensation for childhood sexual abuse that occured decades ago can still be pursued.

We represent many victims of institutional sexual abuse and have been successful in claims against the Nova Scotia government, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boy Scouts of Canada, school boards, and churches, among others.

If you are a victim of sexual abuse or assault and want to learn more about your legal options, call us to book your free consultation. There is no obligation and no upfront fees. If we take on your case, you only pay legal fees if we win.
