Attorney Thomas Cifarelli, of The Cifarelli Law Firm, LLP, files a lawsuit on behalf of an 8-year-old girl who was allegedly sexually abused by a dental assistant.

Child abuse victim’s attorney Thomas Cifarelli, founder and principal attorney of The Cifarelli Law Firm, recently filed a lawsuit (Case No. RG16823781, filed in Alameda County Superior Court) on behalf of an 8-year-old girl (plaintiff) who alleged she was sexually abused by a dental assistant at La Clinica Monument dental office in Concord, CA. La Clinica de La Raza, Inc., headquartered in Oakland, CA, operates the dental office and hired the dental assistant. The lawsuit filed by Cifarelli names La Clinica de La Raza and the dental assistant as defendants.

According to court documents, the dental assistant allegedly took photographs and video of the young girl while he allegedly abused her in late 2015 and early 2016. The dental assistant was arrested on April 2, 2016, on suspicion of molesting children at the Concord dental office. Court documents further state that the Concord Police Department searched the dental assistant’s home and found photographs and video recordings of him allegedly abusing multiple young patients during dental appointments.

The dental assistant has reportedly been charged with numerous felony counts related to the sexual abuse and child pornography. He is believed to have also worked as a dental assistant at Patino Orthodontics in Concord and at Western Dental locations in Concord and Antioch, CA. Based on the photo and video evidence, according to court documents, police believe there are additional victims. Questions about this matter should be directed to attorney Cifarelli at (949) 356-0126.
