As a society we, and particularly attorneys, need to do more to prevent child molestation and hold the enablers accountable for the pain and anguish they cause children and their families.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2012
The San Jose, California personal injury law firm of Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard announces the launch of a new website to serve victims of childhood molestation and their families in California and across the United States.
The new website, http://www.child-molestation-attorney.com, continues Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard's commitment to protecting the rights of victims of childhood abuse and their families. By empowering victims and their families, the law firm looks to create safer communities by forcing child molestation enablers to address the problem and prevent future abuse.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before their 18th birthday. "As a society we, and particularly attorneys, need to do more to prevent child molestation and hold the enablers accountable for the pain and anguish they cause children and their families," said Allard.
The new molestation victim website is intended to provide victims and their families with information about legal representation from a law firm committed to going the distance against enablers who many times cover up for pedophiles or just simply fail to report abuse for reasons ranging from the preservation of image, sheer laziness or monetary considerations.
"The criminal courts exist to punish predators. Civil courts, as utilized by my minor client in her claim for sexual abuse against USA Swimming, exist to not only to compensate victims and their families, but also to force organizations to change the way they deal with child molestation," said Allard.
Attorney Robert Allard, founding partner of Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard, was recently named 2012 California Lawyer of the Year for Public Justice for helping children and their families recover from sex abuse. He is currently working with California lawmakers and federal Congress members to strengthen child molestation mandatory reporting laws at both the state and national levels.
