Sexual abuse is an epidemic in the United States. Statistically, more than one in ten people have suffered a situation that they considered to be sexual abuse or assault. Few people, much less lawyers, understand this type of trauma or the responses by victims of sexual trauma. We have represented victims of sexual abuse for a long period of time. We have several attorneys who represent victims or sexual abuse/assault on a daily basis. We have filed suit against churches, schools, universities, youth sports organizations and other entities. We have filed suit against apartment complexes and hotels for allowing dangerous conditions to exist that resulted in a sexual assault being allowed to occur. These cases cause devastation. Our goal as your lawyer in this type of matter is to advocate for you and maximize value to assist with your future health care and counseling needs.

Highly recommend this firm. Mr. Randy Hood was excellent. He took over my son’s birth injury case and I am so happy he did. He always answered my millions of questions and was always available for me to speak with him or Jessica. No email or phone call ever went unanswered. He always keep me updated with my case and what was going on. We would have been completely loss without Mr. Hood and his firm. We are beyond blessed and appreciative to have had him handle our case and get justice for my son. I would recommend them a million times over.

Thank you again Mr. Hood for all your hard word and dedication. He definitely cares about his clients and has their best interest at heart
