Sexual Abuse Litigation Defense Attorney
Representing Our Clients In New England & Beyond
Melick & Porter, LLP has decades of experience defending sexual abuse claims. We provide pre-trial, trial, and appellate representation throughout New England to individuals and organizations, including private day and boarding schools, businesses, and non-profit organizations. We have served as trusted regional counsel for a national scout organization for over 25 years, and we were the only defense firm to provide arbitration services in connection with the global resolution of the Catholic Church sexual abuse crisis achieved by Commonwealth Mediation.
Decades Of Service To Our Community
Our work in the sexual abuse area resulted in one of the earliest appellate decisions on the applicability of the statute of limitations in sexual abuse cases, Phinney v. Morgan, 39 Mass. App. Ct. 202 (1995). As the law in this area has evolved, our practice has grown as well. Over the years, we have built a network of trusted experts to assist with our case evaluations and trials.
Our attorneys have also developed professional working relationships with many, if not most, of the prominent plaintiffs’ counsel who handle these types of claims. We are committed to using these invaluable resources and relationships as well as our legal expertise to help insurers, insureds, and uninsured obtain fair and expeditious resolutions.
Our sexual abuse defense attorneys provide effective solutions for complex legal matters.
