Serving Victims of Sexual Abuse Throughout The United States
We at James Vernon & Weeks, P.A. have represented hundreds of child sexual abuse victims. We understand. Our legal team of Leander James, Craig Vernon and staff offers compassionate, smart yet aggressive legal representation. We hold perpetrators and those who harbor them responsible. We help our clients heal. You are not alone. It was not your fault
Sex Abuse Thrives In Secrecy
We have years of experience in this area of law. We’ve learned that childhood sexual abuse thrives in secrecy. When institutions cover up sexual assaults against children, the crimes remain hidden; perpetrators go unreported, unprosecuted and are free to abuse again. As dedicated and compassionate advocates, we believe that taking legal action empowers our clients and helps them heal. It also helps to protect kids in the future by exposing perpetrators and institutions who cover up their abuse
Break The Silence, We Can Help
Abuse survivors endure emotional and psychological damages, and they often suffer in silence for years. We understand these sensitive personal and legal issues. Survivors who take action can help themselves and help protect kids from being abused in the future.
What happened was not your fault, and you are far from alone. Statistics show that over the course of their lifetime, 28 percent of U.S. youth ages 14-17 have been sexually victimized. That’s a sad reality that needs to change. When you are ready to choose an attorney, please give us a call or email us confidentially. Your privacy will be respected. Most often we are able to keep your identity confidential as we work through the legal process together.
At James, Vernon & Weeks, P.A., we are committed to helping people solve problems. Our attorneys, Leander James and Craig Vernon and other staff are committed to providing quality legal representation and superior service for each of our valued clients.
With offices in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and Seattle WA, we are positioned to help survivors regionally and nationally.
