Seikaly, Stewart & Bennett’s Experience with Student Protection Law
Seikaly, Stewart & Bennett, P.C. has been representing victims of student abuse for 18 years. We have front-line, successful experience in advocating for your child’s safety regarding sexual harassment and abuse in schools. We have represented numerous victims and their families and have obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients. We are equally proud, however, to have played a part in making schools safer for children.
Advocating for your child’s safety is important. We want you to know that, although public schools and their personnel are protected by many state and federal laws, there is something you can do when your child has been victimized. Parents and family members of those who have suffered sexual abuse at the hands of teachers and other school administrators are often confused by student protection laws and do not know what to do. While these laws are indeed complex, we believe that they do not have to deter victims from pursuing their rights.
We have many years of experience litigating these cases, and we hope that by sharing this experience, our clients and potential clients will be able to cut through the fog and better understand their rights. If you have questions, we will do our best to explain existing student protection laws in plain English and provide guidance about when, how, and where victims of sexual abuse and their families can seek justice in the courts.
