Unfortunately, many sexual assaults go unreported for numerous reasons. Often, survivors are afraid, embarrassed, or ashamed to come forward. Additionally, many people don’t know what actions to take after they’ve endured sexual assault or abuse. They may have questions about where they can turn, who they can trust, if they should press charges against the offender, if they need a sexual abuse lawyer, etc. The emotions, trauma, and reality of it all can make taking the next steps feel impossible. While these feelings are understandable and valid, know that you deserve legal justice, and you are not alone in this.
