Crime Victims

Holding Perpetrators of Sexual Abuse Accountable

The attorneys of Edwards Pottinger aggressively pursue perpetrators of sexual abuse and sexual assault. We also represent child victims and victims of child pornography where child molesters and pedophiles collect and share child pornography.

As a former prosecutor and dedicated victim’s rights advocate, attorney Brad Edwards, understands the criminal and civil justice systems and the impact each can have on crime victims. He has dedicated his career to helping crime victims by protecting their rights in court. Mr. Edwards represents victims of violent or sexual abuse crimes in civil lawsuits which focus on holding the assailant accountable for harm that they cause to victims. Mr. Edwards provides countless hours of his time speaking victims of violent or sexual abuse crimes and counseling them about the issues that crime victims encounter, including:

  • Payment options for emergency and medical expenses
  • Understanding the police investigation and/or criminal justice system
  • Resources available for counseling
  • How the pursuit of a civil lawsuit may hold the perpetrator accountable for the crime committed

Attorney Brad Edwards has represented hundreds of sexual abuse survivors across the United States in lawsuits against entities including large religious institutions, clergy, schools, daycare facilities, youth organizations, Boy Scouts of America, foster care homes, cruise ships, massage therapists, law enforcement officers, apartment complexes, and celebrities.

Giving Sexual Abuse Victims A Voice

Sexual Abuse victims are not alone and they have rights, if and when they are ready to pursue them. At Edwards Pottinger, we want to empower victims of crime to come forward, report crimes and hold perpetrators accountable; thereby educating the community and inspiring others to do the same.

Our firm is also a major advocate for victim’s rights.

We are also a member of the National Crime Victim Bar Association and pursue cases throughout the United States.

Our consultations with potential sexual abuse and sexual assault clients are free and confidential and can take place in the security of our office, or an area where the victim feels most comfortable. If you or a loved one was injured or a victim in an attack or assault by a third party on someone else’s land or premises, contact our sexual abuse/crime victim’s rights attorneys to discuss your legal rights.
