Sexual Misconduct Claims Lawyer

Whenever someone uses their position or influence to gain sexual gratification at another’s expense, it can be a case of sexual misconduct. In most cases of sexual misconduct, the perpetrator is in a position of authority and uses that position to sexually harass or abuse others. Sexual misconduct can be physical, sexual or verbal harassment, in a work, school or medical environment. The common thread is that unwelcome sexual advances are made, often through intimidation. Crime victims can feel powerless to stop the behavior and may not know where to turn.

What Is Sexual Misconduct?

It is illegal to force someone else to commit unwanted sexual acts. Sexual misconduct is a broad term that covers a variety of sex crimes, including harassment, assault and intimidation. It is not just in a work environment, although boss/employee relationships certainly are a common sexual misconduct scenario. It can be teacher/student, doctor/patient or law enforcement/citizen relationships, where one person has the upper hand and requires the other to endure unwanted sexual attention.

With sexual misconduct, the perpetrator uses their position to control the situation. Victims may be afraid to speak up for a variety of reasons. They may be embarrassed because they consented to the advances or allowed it to continue. Often, victims are scared of ruining their reputation or future. The intimidation tactics used by their abuser keep them silent. What they need is someone who will fight for their rights and put an end to the sexual misconduct.

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
