Many cases have been coming forward with people claiming that they have been the victim of harassment, sexual harassment and/or hostile work environments. These cases can be very difficult and should be handled expeditiously and should not be ignored. Whether the case is civil or criminal in nature, it must be attended to. With the wave of people seeking to get an upper hand in civil actions through the prosecution of a criminal case, any kind of a plea agreement will render you civilly liable in an action brought after the criminal case. This is why it is imperative to take all of these matters very seriously and meet with competent counsel who has experience handling sexual abuse cases, sexual harassment cases and both civil and criminal cases of this nature in both state and federal courts. Young and Young is a firm that has been in business for 25 years and has handled these matters many times in both state and federal court, criminal arenas and civil arenas. In fact, this firm handled these types of cases 20 years ago when many other attorneys didn't want to be involved in them. Do not hire a firm that has recently decided to jump on the "me too" train and learn how to defend these types of actions on your good name and reputation. Only seek counsel from a firm that has the experience in handling these matters for many years.
