Sexual Assault/Rape Victims in South Jersey

Our accomplished trial lawyers have handled cases of rape by a stranger, as well as date rape or sexual assaults by a co-worker, boss, acquaintance or person in position of trust or authority. For example, we won damages for a woman who was assaulted by her doctor during an exam. We also handle cases involving molestation of vulnerable adults (such as mentally handicapped adults) by a caretaker.

We understand that in certain cases, a criminal conviction for sexual assault or rape is just not enough to hold someone accountable for what they have put you through. We pursue a civil lawsuit against the perpetrator - going after his or her personal assets. We fight for compensation to cover the costs of counseling for emotional pain and suffering, physical injuries or sexually transmitted disease. Our civil litigation attorneys also pursue any additional claims against employers, organizations or property owners for negligence that enabled the sexual assault to occur. For example, a mall or hotel could be liable for negligent security.

Child Molestation Victims in South Jersey

Shivers, Gosnay & Greatrex represents the interests of children who have been sexually victimized by a teacher, day care provider, coach, troop leader, doctor, priest or clergy member, or other adult. We will directly sue the molester for damages, as well as any organization or public entity that enabled the assault through negligent hiring or policies that put children at risk. Our attorneys have also brought cases against the Department of Youth and Family Services (DFYS) for negligence in placing foster children in a home where they were sexually abused.

Our hearts go out to victims of sexual assault, and our legal team is dedicated to holding the guilty parties accountable for the devastation. Gregg Shivers led a team of prosecutors and investigators in forming New Jersey's first Child Advocacy Center in 1987. He has been representing and advocating for victims ever since.
