Standing Up For The Rights Of Students

No child should endure sexual abuse anywhere, let alone at school. Schools, whether at the elementary, middle school, high school or college level, should provide a safe and educational environment for all.

Yet, whether due to negligence, improper background checks or insufficient supervision, sexual abuse can occur. At J. Lewis & Associates, APLC, we hold both perpetrators of sexual abuse and the institutions that enable or ignore such crimes accountable. We are a husband-wife lawyer team. Leveraging our teamwork approach and family values, we fight for you and your child to seek the justice you deserve.
