STD Attorney Newport Beach Mission ViejoThroughout California, the amount of sexually transmitted disease (STD) cases is on the rise. Even though STD education has become common and accessible to anyone, individuals are still engaging in sexual contact with others while knowingly having herpes and other STDs.

In our state, it is a civil violation for anyone to have intimate contact without telling his or her partner of the infection. If you have been transmitted with herpes by a partner who was infected and failed to disclose the information to you, I can help.  My name is Rivers Morrell and I have more than 40 years of experience handling herpes transmission and STD liability cases.

If you were transmitted an STD by a celebrity, athlete, business owner, professional, executive, clergy or any other substantial individual, I can and will help.

Helping my clients to move from a place of hopelessness to a place of empowerment is one of the most important and fulfilling aspects of my work as an STD transmission civil attorney.  My clients enjoy the easy, direct access to me through texts, emails and cell phone calls – or a visit to my offices.  They appreciate the manner with which I protect their dignity and privacy, while resolving their case to provide the financial resources needed to manage the impact of herpes and move forward positively with their life.

I invite you to review some of the successful verdicts and settlements I have achieved at trial and in settlements as well as the strong recommendations of our clients our peers, and the legal industry.   These may help you to know you have found the right attorney to handle your sensitive and complex legal case for STD transmission.

If Someone Gave Me Herpes, Is It Possible to Sue and Win?

If you have discovered that you have herpes and believe that you acquired the virus due to a sexual partner’s failure to disclose his or her infection status, it is possible to file a lawsuit and win. I have done so on behalf of numerous clients.

We can take anything the defendant said to you, such as referring to any inability to ever prove that you got herpes from that person or that you sleep around too much to tell who you got it from, and use it against them in court. These statements are untrue and just another way of attempting to intimidate or shame their victim into silence. Do not believe these threats or that it is simply your word against theirs. I can help you to regain that sense of hope and empowerment and how to hold the negligent person responsible for knowingly giving you an STD.
