Protecting Victims Of Sexual Assault
Whether you or a loved one was recently abused or the sexual assault happened years ago, you deserve justice. I want to help you hold the perpetrator accountable by bringing a civil lawsuit against them. You may need to open up parts of your life that you’d rather not remember. Yet, if the end result is that a person who scared and violated you is held financially responsible, and deterred from doing it to someone else, isn’t it worth it?
That is a question that only you can answer. What I can tell you is that if you bring a claim, I will aggressively protect you, your medical history and your reputation every step of the way. I am Desiree O. Cox, an attorney with more than 30 years of experience helping people like you find justice.
I Will Aggressively Protect Your Rights
I will protect you from retaliation. From the get go, I will make it clear to the other side that anything threatening that they do to you or anyone involved in your case will lead to more damages or related legal action.
I will protect your privacy and reputation. As a female lawyer, I am sensitive to rights of privacy and confidentiality. I will not let any defendant delve into any unrelated or irrelevant medical, employment or financial records. These records are protected by law — a law that I know like the back of my hand.
I will protect your rights. I am very creative in pleading, and thorough in handling, cases, which allows me to seek the most damages and other important remedies that I can for you under the law.
