Kansas Attorneys Enforce Civil Liability for Child Sexual Abuse
Holding predators and negligent institutions accountable
Child sexual abuse is one of the most abhorrent crimes imaginable. Molestation robs children of their innocence, dehumanizes them and instills in them a crippling sense of shame. By taking legal action, a survivor can choose empowerment, which is essential to recovery. In our practice, we help victims of child molestation pursue civil remedies. These actions often come after a criminal trial has determined punishment against the immediate perpetrator. Our task is to recovery monetary damages, usually against a negligent institution that failed to protect the victim. If you or your child has been a target of a child molester in Kansas, Shelton Law Office can help you shed the victim label. We have the knowledge, skill and experience s to assert your legal rights and fight with you for justice.

Experienced trial lawyers manage the challenges of sexual abuse litigation
Child sexual abuse cases can be very difficult to prove. Child victims, though sympathetic, are rarely seen as credible witnesses. A successful case requires a great deal of corroborating evidence. The law does extend the statute of limitations for child victims of sexual abuse, so that they can bring civil actions as adults. But evidence often erodes with the passage of time. However, in choosing our firm to represent you, you get a determined team of legal professionals who are committed to building the strongest case possible.
