Lawsuits for Rape and Sexual Assault Civil Lawsuits

rape and sexual assault

Most people are aware that there are criminal penalties against the wrongful party in a rape and sexual assault in Orange County.  However, most people are unaware that there are civil penalties that may be awarded and given to the victims in these type of cases.  Many people are ashamed to consider a civil lawsuit for rape or sexual assault.  I can tell you from my experience in STD transmission cases and other sex related civil cases holding their attacker responsible in a civil lawsuit is the first step in recovering personal empowerment and strength.

My name is Rivers Morrell and after more than 40 years of experience in these types of cases I can tell you this is all about regaining your inner strength, confidence and esteem.  If you are unsure why you should consider a rape and sexual assault civil lawsuit I invite you to watch this video created by two of our former STD transmission clients.  Both women felt that working with our firm to hold their perpetrator accountable was the beginning of regaining their strength and internal confidence.

In many of these cases, especially those involving people of substance or authority who have abused your trust, the best way to get justice is to pursue these people where it counts the most to them – their wallet.  Furthermore, unlike in the criminal courts, where the standard for guilt is beyond a reasonable doubt, in a civil case, the standard of proof is much lower so it is easier to win.  Some prosecutors may not feel they have enough evidence to charge perpetrators of rape and sexual assault with a criminal offense.  I invite you to contact me or call 949-305-1400 to speak with me personally for a free, private and confidential consultation.  I will help to hold them accountable.

Due to the sensitive nature and rarity of rape and sexual assault civil cases not many attorneys have the extensive experience, resources or legal skill to manage these lawsuits.  However, at the Law Firm of Rivers Morrell we have successfully handled countless cases of this nature, and have the experience to properly advise you on the best legal strategies available for your claims.

If you have been attacked and suffered rape or sexual assault by a person of substance we can help.  There is no cost to you out of pocket as we handle our cases on a contingency fee basis.
