School Rape Lawyer

School Rape Lawyer

The attorneys at The Fierberg National Law Group are among the nation’s best lawyers for school sexual assault issues, advocating for victims at K-12 schools and higher education institutions. We have the background and expertise that makes us uniquely qualified to successfully handle sexual assault and abuse lawsuits and other cases involving sexual or gender-based violence. Our attorneys understand the challenges that come with filing claims against institutions that are more interested in maintaining their reputation and often hide behind well-heeled lawyers who resort to blaming and shaming the victims.

We are passionate about not only making sure your rights are protected and perpetrators are held accountable but also ensuring judgments reached on behalf of our clients bring about meaningful and lasting change to protect the rights of all students. If you have experienced sexual assault while a student, our law firm has a school rape lawyer that is ready to walk with you and fight on your behalf.

I tried to file criminal charges against my rapist, but the charges were dropped.

If you took the necessary steps to report your assault and nothing came of it, we want to express our sincere condolences. It is unfathomable that victims of such traumatic crimes often have to prove that they are indeed the victim. It is our mission to not only pursue the perpetrators of such crimes but also to make sure that colleges and universities are held accountable for any role they may have played. This can be accomplished through civil litigation.

Attorney Cari S. Simon is a Title IX and Victims’ Rights Attorney who focuses on the civil representation of victims of sexual violence and other misconduct on campus and in K-12 schools. Ms. Simon has dedicated her life to fighting for women’s rights and is a leader in the national movement to address campus sexual assault. Ms. Simon pioneered rights for sexual assault victims.

Attorney Jonathan N. Fazzola was successful in obtaining clearance from the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit to proceed with a lawsuit filed on behalf of two female students who were sexually assaulted. At issue is the university’s unwillingness to investigate their rape claims because the alleged assaults happened off-campus – violating their rights under Title IX.

Title IX lawyer, Monica H. Beck, has 20 years of civil litigation experience in federal and state courts across the nation and focuses her practice on representing young victims of sexual violence, abuse, assault, and harassment, making certain their rights are protected and achieving justice for victims and their families. Ms. Beck represents children in Michigan and across the country in Title IX claims and other lawsuits to ensure that perpetrators and institutions, like schools and churches, that fail to comply with their obligations to protect children are held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.

Attorney Rachael Denhollander became internationally known in 2016 as the first woman to pursue criminal charges and speak publicly against USA Gymnastics Women’s National Team doctor Larry Nassar, one of the most prolific sexual abusers in recorded history. As a result of Ms. Denhollander’s activism, over 300 women—including numerous Olympic medalists—came forward as survivors of Nassar’s abuse, eventually leading to his life imprisonment. Ms. Denhollander’s courageous tenacity and ongoing advocacy helped trigger a complete upheaval at USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University. Ms. Denhollander was instrumental in helping secure a record-setting $500 million settlement with Michigan State University for Nassar survivors in 2018, and a further $380 million settlement with USA Gymnastics in 2021.

She also represents survivors of gender-based violence in the workplace and in cyber abuse cases. In 2020, Ms. Konidaris was appointed the Co-Chair of the New York City Bar’s Sex & Law Committee and was named a 2021 Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in Civil Rights Law.
