Defense of Sexual Molestation Claims

Overview

Sexual abuse claims and clergy, scouting, cruise ship, and school related misconduct cases raise unique concerns for insurers and their policyholders. To properly defend these claims, the firm must have a breadth of experience and understanding of the complexities and changing case law, strong negotiation, mediation, and trial skill while demonstrating compassion and sensitivity. Children and lapse in memory are often at issue, so the need to understand all the nuances of discovery in defending these matters is critical. MG+M offers the necessary knowledge and experience to defend these matters aggressively and fairly.

Our proactive approach

Our team provides a proactive defense to any alleged act of sexual misconduct. Our internal investigation process provides a future strategy model to prepare each case individually for a strong defense and the best outcome possible, while saving the insurers extensive costs. We protect the rights of the innocent in a variety of ways, including identifying and establishing due process violations, finding corroborating witnesses and evidence, and proving untrue accusations false.

Our fully-integrated team

Although we have partners located across the nation, we work collaboratively as a unified team. Our team approach ensures that the best-qualified attorney will handle each aspect of your case and that you are properly defended, with a clear roadmap of our approach and next steps throughout the process.
