School should be a safe place for students - sadly, this is not always the case.
As a survivor of sexual abuse in a school setting, you know just how tough it can be to get the justice you need to move on with your life.
Abuse Guardian's Jesse Forbes can help.
Jesse offers legal and emotional support for you and your family, as well as guidance on how you can get restitution for harm caused.
Jesse's legal services are part of Abuse Guardian’s continued commitment to offering advice for sexual abuse victims across the United States, including for cases that involve the distribution of explicit materials without consent in a private or boarding school environment.
According to statistics from RAINN, the distribution of explicit materials featuring minors is on the rise across the United States, with an increase in the number of cases that involve schools. Recognizing the severity of this trend and the irreparable harm that such abuse can cause, Jesse Forbes and his legal team at Forbes Law Office are committed to helping you get the justice you deserve. “Boarding school abuse is a distressing issue that has garnered significant attention in recent years,” says Jesse. “Pursuing legal recourse for private school abuse can be challenging due to varying statutes of limitations, which is why we specialize in representing victims of institutional neglect and abuse.”
Jesse advises victims on their rights and legal options, as he is well-versed in West Virginia state laws regarding sexual abuse and can provide representation throughout the entire process.
The legal team is knowledgeable about many different forms of abuse that can occur in a private school setting, including the distribution of explicit materials without consent, which can happen in the context of a peer group or between a staff member and student.
In addition to providing legal advice and emotional support for you and your loved ones, Jesse also fights to keep perpetrators accountable and prevent further harm. He helps you take advantage of extended statutes of limitations in WV to ensure the best possible outcome in your case and to get compensation for damages, including emotional harm and medical bills.
