MORE LAWYERS OFFER HELP TO ABUSE VICTIMS
On September 23, 2016, Governor Eddie Calvo signed into law a bill that abolished the statute of limitations for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The new law means abuse survivors can now file claims against the people who abused them as well as the people and institutions that allowed the abuse to occur.
When a child survives abuse by someone in a position of trust and authority, the resulting harm and damage can last a lifetime. We are attorneys who can help survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and we understand that many child abuse survivors do not realize they are suffering until much later in life.
The lawyers featured on this website have a wide-range of legal experience, including some who have represented hundreds of abuse survivors with claims against the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts, the Mormon church, schools, and other youth-serving organizations that failed to protect their clients from sexual predators. Some of the lawyers are licensed in Guam, while others are licensed in other states but are willing to jointly represent abuse survivors in Guam given their experience helping people in other states.
