Boca Raton Crimes Against Minors Attorney

What to Do If A Minor Has Been a Victim of a Crime

Eltringham Law Group in Boca Raton offers crimes against minors legal services to individuals in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Plantation, Boynton Beach and West Palm Beach. Crimes against minors can vary from sexual molestation to assault, and can encompass other types of intentional actions. When a minor you love has been victimized and/or injured due to any type of crime, it’s an especially emotional situation; it’s important to get justice. Child victims are among the most vulnerable types of victims, no matter what the crime, and cases involving minors must be handled with compassion and specific knowledge of minors’ rights.

Pursuing a legal case involving a minor can be a difficult task. On the one hand, depending on the age of the child, it can be challenging to obtain the information necessary to proceed with the case. On the other hand, as a parent or guardian, there is a natural tendency to want to shield minors from the legal process and from having to appear during legal proceedings or be in the company of the assailant. The personal injury attorneys at the Eltringham Group, however, have decades of experience in handling injury cases. During that time, we have developed the knowledge necessary to effectively and compassionately represent minors who have been victims of crimes.

Crimes Against Minors Include:

  • Sexual assault or molestation
  • Assault
  • Child abuse
  • Robbery
  • Exploitation

5 star review

I usually never leave reviews, good or bad, but for this instance, I most definitely had to. David and Marnie were both AMAZING. They made me feel comfortable and confident in their ability to resolve my case. I was walking in a crosswalk and was hit by a vehicle resulting in having to go to the hospital. I sustained injuries from this that I am still in the midst of dealing with. I contacted the firm and was able to speak with them via zoom immediately. I decided to sign with them on a Monday evening (3 days after my accident) and by Tuesday afternoon (the very next day) my case was settled. And settled for the very max that was able to be obtained. I attribute a lot of this to not only the expertise of the firm, but the relationships that Marnie has built with her experience working as a lawyer within a major insurance provider, which just so happened to be the insurance provider involved in my case. This is incredibly atypical for a case to be settled this quickly, especially with this outcome. It has been two weeks to the day today that my accident has happened and my case has already been resolved. I am blessed and more than happy that I decided to hire this firm. Every case is different, but I can bet that this firm will handle your case with care and the utmost professionalism. I pray I never have to go through a situation like this again, but if I did, I wouldn’t hesitate to call this law firm. Thank you guys very much!!

I highly recommend Eltringham Law Group to anyone seeking legal advice after having a car accident. David Eltringham and his entire staff gave me the personal attention I needed during a very difficult and painful time. David took the extra steps needed to ensure that I received the medical care I needed as well as the financial compensation I deserved. Harold Torres, Paralegal updated me every step of the way. Thank you Eltringham Law Group!
