We Represent Victims And Families In Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York
The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) reports that each year there are more than 200,000 victims of sexual assault in the United States. Underreporting of sexual assaults most likely means this statistic is much lower than reality.
Unfortunately, many sexual assault survivors do not know their rights, especially if they were assaulted by a person in a position of power such as an employer, teacher, priest or doctor. The perpetrators may have legal support from the school, church, hospital or workplace, leaving the victims feeling alone and powerless.
With representation from an experienced crime victim’s attorney, however, you can fight back. At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., we help sexual abuse and rape survivors get justice and hold offenders accountable for their actions. We will explain your rights and help you stand up for them. When there are liable parties, we can file a civil suit against them for compensation to cover your past, present, and future losses.

Compassionate Representation For Children And Adults
Children are at risk of child molestation and sexual abuse from adults whom they are supposed to be able to trust. We have represented children who have survived sexual abuse. For example, attorney Jeffrey Fritz represented some of the alleged sex crime victims in the Penn State/Jerry Sandusky case. Mr. Fritz is a charter member and past president of the National Crime Victim Bar Association, an affiliate of the National Center for Victims of Crime.
We can assist your family with cases involving:
- Clergy and the church
- Youth organizations
- Coaches and sports
- Teachers and schools
- Incest and foster care

There are statutes of limitations for filing civil suits in child and adult sexual assault cases. We recommend speaking with an attorney as soon as possible to learn about the deadlines for filing your case.
