Child sex abuse is not only criminal but is a life altering form of personal injury
If you are a victim of child sexual abuse by an authority figure in your place of worship by a clergy member, deacon, visiting priest, elder or youth minister, at school by a teacher, coach or guidance counselor, at a residential treatment facility by a guard, staff member or clinician, at an after school program or Youth Development Program by a counselor, youth worker, activity specialist, supervisor, or staff associate, we believe this is something no child should have to suffer. Perpetrators are misguided in choosing their victims thinking that a child’s voice will not be heard, believed or acknowledged or they themselves are mislead in the belief that they will not be caught or escape the consequences of their actions.
Time has passed but the memories have not faded. As a child you were a victim. Now you are a survivor that deserves justice.

” Michele Betti is the best lawyer I have ever met. She only takes cases she cares about and it really shows. She was always available to talk to if I needed to and made sure that I had whatever I needed. I would have never been able to get through my legal battle without her help, not only in my lawsuit but my personal life too. She resolved my case with a better outcome than I could’ve ever expected. I consider her a close personal friend now and continue to recommend her to everyone I know.
