Our Lawyers Are Experienced In All Types Of Rape Cases

Most rape allegations involve issues of consent between people who already know each other, either as acquaintances or as family members. Date rape is one common example. It is less common to hear about rape or child molestation allegations that involve strangers.

An alleged rape victim may claim that the sexual contact was not consensual, but the individual being charged may have thought otherwise. In many cases, alcohol, drugs or misleading behavior are involved. This can easily lead to a violent rape charge.

Third parties (such as the victim's family members) may also be the ones pressing charges, rather than the victim alone. They may be working to justify behavior that the victim willingly participated in or seek punishment for behavior they do not approve of. This is common in statutory rape cases, where the so-called victim is simply under the legal age of consent.

As attorneys, our job is to uncover the origin of these allegations and craft arguments to challenge them to the fullest extent of the law. We take a strategic approach to defense. Every case we handle is analyzed for multiple outcomes, and we take the time to determine which strategy is most likely to achieve a favorable result.
