I consulted with Brooke and found her to be genuine, informative, knowledgeable and a person who would advocate for me. Her demeanor and compassion made it very evident that should I ever need further assistance, she is truly the one I would hire.”
I just want everyone to know that I had Brooke represent me after a big box firm treated me like just another paycheck like I was nothing. I’m glad I made the swap.”
Brooke gave me her cell number and usually returns my call that day or the next if I don’t reach her. Brooke is the type of lawyer I want in my corner!”

    The signs of child sex abuse often go unnoticed. It is possible that your child’s behavior or demeanor has changed or that an adult – such as a teacher or coach – has seemed to take an interest in your child. These signs are subtle but it is important to carefully assess them so that abuse can be stopped and abusers can be held accountable. Boy Scout sexual abuse has come to the forefront in recent years in terms of sex abuse scandals. There are countless survivors that still need to have their stories told and they also deserve compensation to help pay for necessary expenses such as therapy. Our Boy Scout sexual abuse attorney is here to help these survivors tell their stories, have their abusers held accountable, and receive compensation for their abuse.

    At Goff Law Group - West Hartford, our child sexual abuse attorneys take these cases extremely seriously and will remain relentless in our pursuit of justice on your behalf. Remember: you don't have to go through this alone. Allow our compassionate yet aggressive team of legal professionals to take on your case and protect your child.

    What Constitutes Child Sexual Abuse in Connecticut?

    Connecticut maintains strict sexual abuse laws, which are particularly strict when the crime involves children. The abuse can come at the hands of a close relative, friend, coach, or another contact. Throughout Connecticut, boy scout and girl scout sexual abuse claims have been on the rise. Goff Law Group - West Hartford is the girl & boy scout sexual abuse attorney you can trust to represent you throughout the entire process.

    Examples of sexual abuse of a child include but are not limited to:

    • Taking or distributing photos or videos of a child that are sexual in nature
    • Making sexual requests
    • Exposing genitals to a child or forcing a child to expose themselves
    • Forcing a child to view pornographic videos or photos
    • Any sort of sexual act performed with a child

    These acts are, unfortunately, far too common. At Goff Law Group, we are dedicated to representing the innocent victims who have endured these forms of abuse.

    Sexual abuse of children can occur anywhere, but often occurs at:

    • Schools
    • Sports events
    • Youth agencies and organizations, such as the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts
    • Religious institutions
    • Daycares
    • Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts
    Negligence in Child Sex Abuse Cases

    Aside from the perpetrator, you may also be able to seek damages against others who acted negligently by allowing the abuse to occur or failing to keep your children safe. For instance, you may hold a school accountable for a teacher who committed sexual abuse.

    Potential Damages in Your Case

    Because sexual abuse is a crime, there will be a criminal case against the abuser. However, you also have the right to file a civil case against him or her. A civil case can help you recover damages for expenses resulting from the incident(s) as well as punitive damages.

    You may be able to seek compensation to cover:

    • Medical bills
    • Pain and suffering
    • Psychiatric treatment
