Compassionate Counsel. Aggressive Advocacy.
Sexual abuse is a devastating experience and a burden that many bear in silence. Unfortunately, the criminal justice system does not always successfully convict or punish the offenders, leaving the victims to suffer even further. In some cases, an attorney can intervene on behalf of the victim and pursue a civil claim against the offender and any other parties that may be held liable for compensation.
Is It Worth Pursuing My Case When It Seems Like So Many Walk Free?
Many sexual harassment and assault cases are settled before filing a lawsuit, so you may not even have to face your assailant directly. However, it is entirely up to you to determine whether you are mentally prepared for the possibility of facing your assailant in court.
At KMD Law, we operate on contingency, meaning our clients only pay us if we win. Our firm has a long history of success, but in the event we do not win your case, you will not suffer financially. We also promise to protect your privacy as best we can.
We represent clients on a contingency fee basis; if we don’t win, you won’t pay a single cent. Call our Los Angeles sexual assault lawyer at (833) 456-3529 to learn more about your options.

Sexual abuse takes place when the perpetrator participates in unwanted sexual activity with another while using threats or force, or taking advantage of someone who is unable to defend themselves or who does not give consent.
If you have been abused sexually, here are some things to keep in mind:
- Call 911 if you are in immediate danger. If you are injured or in danger, call 911 as soon as you can.
- Find a safe place. If you don’t feel safe, reach out to someone you trust to help you relocate to a secure location.
- Call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at (800) 656-4673. A trained member can help direct you to a health care facility that cares for sexual assault survivors and answer any of your questions.
- Report the crime. You can tell a medical professional that you wish to report the crime, contact your local police station, or visit campus law enforcement if you are in college.
- Get in touch with an attorney. Having a legal advocate on your side from the beginning is important. An attorney can help you evaluate your case and provide you with advice as you move forward.

Does It Matter When the Sexual Assault Occurred?
In California, and in every state across the country, there are statute of limitations concerning civil lawsuits for sexual abuse and sexual harassment. The limitations and the laws that control when and where you can file a claim based on sexual impropriety are seemingly changing every day. Don’t assume that because the abuse occurred years, even decades ago, that you cannot file a claim. We have recovered millions for our clients for events that happened as much as 30 years ago. Give us a call to discuss your case.
