Sexual Abuse Attorneys

Sexual abuse, as defined by the American Psychological Association, is “unwanted sexual activity, with perpetrators using force, making threats or taking advantage of victims not able to give consent.”

Sexual abuse could happen at work, in school, in your own home, in the church, in nursing homes – no place is off limits. No situation is off limits, either. Sexual predators can be in your family, your friend group, or your office space.

Often, these predators abuse from a position of power. They believe that they have power over you and can silence your voice. They are wrong.

If a sexual predator has affected you, you need to file a sexual abuse claim. The trauma and experiences that you have endured should not be forgotten, and the perpetrator should face consequences for his or her actions.

Our Memphis sexual abuse attorneys at The Chiozza Law Firm fight for you and stand beside you every step of the way. Together, we build a compelling case that includes warning signs, past problems, communication instances, messages, actions, and more. We want to support you while holding the predator accountable.

Sexual Harassment Attorneys

Sexual harassment includes unwelcome advances, requests or demands for sexual activities and can be either of physical, verbal or written nature.

Below are some fast facts on sexual harassment:

  • Sexual harassment violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
  • Sexual harassment includes requests for sexual favors, delivering explicit emails or texts, saying inappropriate jokes, and making sexual comments about a coworker.
  • Unwelcome touching, sexual advancements, and physical or verbal acts are forms of sexual harassment.

In many cases, sexual harassment occurs when the predator includes this harassment as part of the relationship – work, living environment, education, or inclusion to a specific group. He or she recognizes the power structure that exists and often chases those in subordinate roles to harass. This is never acceptable.

More often as of late, sexual harassment claims incorporate business and corporations because those operations either have a systemic pattern of sexual harassment or have a specific case that they must immediately deal with.

If you are a victim, contact your Memphis sexual harassment attorneys at The Chiozza Law Firm. Because of the lingering effects of that sexual harassment and dangers that it presents, we must act on this swiftly. If you feel that you have been the victim of sexual harassment, you need to fully understand your rights as an employee, as a citizen, and as a victim.

While we recognize that coming forward can be challenging and perhaps embarrassing, you have to come forward and specify the people that have physically, mentally, and emotionally harmed you.
