Our sexual abuse legal team believes you
Sexual abuse begins with a process called grooming. The perpetrator begins by targeting his victim and slowly begins to cross boundaries. It may be a tap to the rear, a hug, a massage, special attention, or gifts. The boundary-crossing continues until the perpetrator has the complete confidence of the victim and then proceeds to sexual abuse.
It is a challenge to reveal that you are a sexual abuse or sexual assault survivor. There is a shame, guilt, and embarrassment. And if you are a male, there is the issue of your masculinity being questioned. When a survivor does come forward, there is the issue of believability. And in many cases, there is the issue of the perpetrator making threats and facing the consequences from institutions protecting the predator.
