Q: Hello my name is Hannah. I need to find an attorney for a lawsuit against the courts for allowing my father to molest me
I was told my my moms old attorney that this is a big lawsuit and that it would be best for me to sue them because it has caused severe PTSD and other major depression. Courts had all the evidence and paperwork that my father was molesting me and still ignored it and allowed my father to have custody of me as a child. I have all the proof of everything through court paperworks and criminal records of my father. Hes currently in prison because he was later caught when i had to run away at the age of 15.. This judge was already sued for the same reasons by someone else. I want to sue these people for allowing my father to physically and sexually abuse me. Where do i start? What kind of attorney do i need?
A: It's not as easy as it looks. You would not be suing the Court directly but likely child protective services.Look for an attorney who has been involved in one of the church molestation cases.Russ Rilee of Bedford would be one. He works with attorney Charles Capace of Boston. Try them.
