We’re Here to Help

If you or someone you know was sexually abused as a child or teenager, we will stand beside you to bring you justice and hold accountable those responsible.

Our firms form a national team of attorneys and legal professionals dedicated to representing victims of sexual abuse. We help victims recover compensation they can use to help rebuild their lives. We take them from victim to survivor to thriver. Through these efforts, our broader goal is to change the broken systems that allow abuse to take place and prevent perpetrators from harming today’s children, teenagers, and adults.

Our team is composed of attorneys from James, Vernon & Weeks, P.A., and Noaker Law Firm LLC, firms that have years of experience working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Together, we have the resources necessary to confront large, well-financed organizations and get results, while providing individual client care.

Our Team

Leander L. James IV, James, Vernon & Weeks, P.A.:

Lee’s efforts on behalf of sexual abuse victims resulted in the $166 million Northwest Jesuit settlement, and his work has established institutional protections for children. He and his team members work closely with victims who are navigating the effects of child sex abuse as adults. A former teacher, Lee’s deep sense of commitment produces positive results for the victims with whom he’s worked, earning them justice and compensation.

Craig Vernon, James, Vernon & Weeks, P.A.:

A former Mormon and Boy Scout, Craig has a deep commitment to protecting children’s safety in the church and in BSA. Craig has prosecuted cases against the LDS Church, Mennonites, Boys Scouts and other large institutions, and both Craig and Lee have represented hundreds of American Indians victimized by abusers and the institutions who harbored them. Craig’s deep commitment to the cause of justice for survivors has sent him to all corners of the United States championing the rights of child sex abuse victims.

With decades of experience, Patrick has an expertise in bringing lawsuits on behalf of people who have been sexually abused.
