Legal Services for Sexual Harassment & Assault in the Greater Toronto Area
We help victims of sexual assault as well as innocent defendants who have been wrongfully accused of sexual assault
How we help +
One of the most important issues that most law firms fail to consider about sexual assault cases, is the nature of their severity on the victim and defendant. Both parties are generally in a position where they simply can’t continue functioning at their maximum capacity in other areas of their life. This is because of the life changing impact that sexual assault has on the victim, as well as the potentially life changing impact it has on wrongfully accused defendants.
This is why Kevin Marshall’s legal team takes great care to approach your sexual assault and harassment case with an empathetic and gentle approach. We make sure to understand your complete life situation. This includes everything from the financial, to the psychological and social factors that are being impacted. This allows us to help you navigate this case in a way that helps you feel as comfortable as possible, and help you to stay as productive as possible.
Providing clarity to sexual assault victims and accused defendants.
Many times victims of sexual assault come to us with uncomfortable, sometimes ongoing situations. They often feel like they don’t even know if they are being sexually assaulted, or if what they are experiencing cannot be stopped. Sometimes this includes subtle but consistent verbal sexual advances from coworkers, bosses or employers. Other times, these advances are more physical, but the victim feels ashamed or scared that they may lose their job if they complain, so they don’t know how to handle the situation.
Other times, people accused of sexual assault come to us in a complete panic, completely surprised or unaware that they were committing any sexual assault or harassment. These clients are often both confused and incredibly scared about the potential consequences to their career, social status and criminal record.
Whatever side of the sexual harassment dispute you find yourself on, we can help you fully understand what legal situation you’re in, and what we can do to help you. If you reside in the Greater Toronto Area or anywhere in Ontario, we’ll give you the clarity you need about your situation.
We help resolve your sexual assault disputes as quietly and privately as possible.
We also understand that your reputation, entire social life and even professional career can be impacted by a single sexual assault case. This goes for both victims and accused. This is why we take all the necessary precautions to ensure that any and all investigations, paperwork, correspondence and court appearances are always carried out in a way that respects your privacy.
We can also help advise sexual assault victims about what they can and should do to keep themselves safe from further attacks if they’re dealing with an ongoing threat. For defendants who have been wrongfully accused, we’ll help guide them to avoid future accusations, which is especially important while the legal dispute is ongoing.
