Personal Letter To Victims Of Sexual Abuse
If you are, or were, the victim of sexual abuse, I would like to help you.
Since 1991 I have represented more than 100 victims of sexual abuse and have consulted with hundreds more in Illinois and many other states. I have argued sexual abuse cases before the Illinois Appellate and Supreme Courts. I co-authored and successfully lobbied for the passage of the 2003 Child Protection Act.
I would like to help you if I can.
If you are still being sexually abused, and you would like to find out what options are available to you without committing yourself to a course of action, you can call me for a free consultation and I will try to help you figure out a solution. You can call me anonymously if you prefer and I will try to help you figure out how to escape from the situation you are in.
If the abuse has stopped and you would like to know what your options are, I will be glad to advise you. If appropriate I will assist you in seeking justice for the sexual abuse you suffered and I will try to find a solution you are comfortable with.
If you were abused in the past, I strongly urge you to discuss your options with an attorney that is experienced in handling sexual abuse claims. The issues are complicated and require a great deal of experience to explore all of the options including the possibility of filing claims in several states.
The biggest obstacle to obtaining justice is the passage of time. Most sexual abuse cases that are lost, are lost because the victim waited until it was too late and the statute of limitations had expired.
Part of the path to healing is in seeking justice.
If you would like to discuss your situation with me please feel free to call me.
Very truly yours,
Joseph G. Klest
