It’s difficult, stressful and scary. You don’t just need an sexual assault lawyer, you need someone with specific experience in the realm of sexual violence and a delicate understanding of the feelings of victims.

Sexual Assault Court Cases

At Eltringham Law Group, we understand the concerns held by sexual assault victims as they head toward court proceedings. Our work with both adults and children has helped us to develop a very specific knowledge of the unique pressures that come with working through sexual assault cases. Whatever questions or concerns you may have about the process, we’re here to help:

  • How much of my information will be made public?
  • What can my attorneys do to balance my right to privacy with my desire for legal redress and justice?
  • What sort of legal liabilities do I face in regard to medical expenses?
  • Am I going to get the best possible legal service for an issue that’s deeply important and personal?
  • What are the various options available to me in terms of legal repercussions for the offender?
  • What is the difference between criminal and civil court and why does it matter to me?

You Are Not Alone

We know that these are hard questions. We know that after an assault you can feel depressed and worried, and sometimes would prefer to avoid the issue than have to sit in a courtroom and stare down the offender. That’s why we offer a safe, supportive environment in which you can receive all the legal information you need from a staff with experience and passion.

What’s most important in this process is for you to remember that you are not alone. In Florida, nearly 42% of women have been made victims of some sort of sexual violence. However, only around 18% of rapes are ever reported—a staggering difference. At Eltringham Law Group, we know that the lack of reporting often comes as a result of the victim being unaware of the available legal options. We work hard to ensure you know exactly what you can do to find justice. We’re more than just an injury lawyer in Boca Raton—we’re a group of victims’ advocates willing to fight for your rights in the courtroom.

We’re not the type of law firm that takes any case we can find to make a quick buck. We carefully research every situation in order to be certain there’s a valid, legal case to be made before we agree to participate. This ensures that we can always deliver on our promises, and helps us maintain our reputation as one of the best law firms in the area. We’re not in this for the easy fix—we’re here to make an impact in our clients’ lives by giving them the results they deserve and ensuring they have a caring, knowledgeable advocate in the courtroom.

What to Expect When You Are a Victim of Sexual Assault

When you choose the Eltringham Law Group to represent you when you have been a victim of sexual assault, here is what you can expect to happen:

  • We offer free consultations so you can get all your questions answered and can spend time talking directly with an experienced attorney about your rights and expected outcomes.
  • Leave all the work to us. We will be in contact with doctors, hospitals, witnesses, police, attorneys and anyone else necessary to settle your case. We will thoroughly investigate, and build a solid case on your behalf.
  • You focus on you. Whether you are recovering from injuries, seeking aid to process your trauma, or dealing with stress and anxiety, now is the time to focus on your own needs. Leave the details of your case in the hands of experienced attorneys that will get the job done right.
  • We work on a contingent fee basis. This means that you don’t need to lay out any money up front in order to have our attorneys work on your case. We don’t get paid unless we recover a financial settlement or jury award for you.
If you’ve been made the victim of a sexual assault or molestation, remember that there are people willing to help; you do not have to go through the legal process on your own. We are here to make things better and easier. Call us today at 561-338-0420

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!!


5 star review

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!

I had such a great experience with Eltringham Law Group! I was always kept in the loop and the experience was so personal. I was always in close contact with Teresa who was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend Eltringham Law Group again and again – I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!!!
