We are ready, willing and able to go to battle for you, whether against a school, employer, church or temple. No defendant is too big, and no battle too long, when it comes to obtaining justice for victims of sexual assault and molestation. Wites Law Firm has represented injured people and their families since 2001.
Our consultation is FREE. If we accept your case, we will prosecute your case on a pure contingency-fee basis, which means that you will not be obligated to pay us any attorney’s fees or reimburse us for the costs incurred in your case unless we obtain money for you.
We understand the courage and bravery required for a victim of sexual assault to come forward and seek justice. We will put forward an equal amount of dedication and commitment to fight for you.
We will protect your dignity and privacy, while at the same time fighting aggressively in court to obtain justice for you. This may include monetary damages for your pain and suffering, and for medical expenses such as the mental health counseling you need to heal.
While some sexual assault cases are resolved confidentially, others require lengthy and difficult court battles. We have the experience to do both.
By way of example, we fought a school board on behalf of several young girls sexually assaulted by their elementary school teacher. We fought the school board for many years. We took dozens of depositions, filed motions to obtain documents and information from the school board, and fought appeals all the way to The Florida Supreme Court.
In the end, we obtained a record breaking multi-million dollar settlement for our clients, who had reached adulthood by the time the case was over.
If your sexual assault case cannot be settled for a fair and reasonable amount you need a law firm that is experienced in court and jury trials. At the Wites Law Firm, we don’t just settle cases. We fight as long as it takes to obtain the right result for our clients.
If the defendant won’t treat you fairly, we will go to court, and we will take your case to trial. If the defendant appeals, we will fight for you in the appeals courts, too. We will be at your side and fight for you and with you to obtain the justice you deserve.
Sexual Assault Victim consultations are confidential and private. Our attorneys are ready to discuss a wide range of topics over the phone or in our office.
Therefore, we invite you to contact someone in our office for a one-on-one consultation with Marc Wites.
You can still bring a civil lawsuit for money damages. It is not necessary to report a crime to the police in order to bring a civil lawsuit for money damages.
If the plaintiff is a minor child, they will be identified in the lawsuit as “Janie Doe” or “Johnny Doe” to protect their identity. If the plaintiff is an adult, the adult plaintiff will most likely have to use their full and real name in all court proceedings.
Maybe. In civil lawsuits, each party, including both the plaintiff and the defendant, has a right to attend each party’s deposition, the mediation, and the trial. However, in cases involving minors, courts will often enter orders that provide that the defendant cannot attend the minor child’s deposition, and other protections may be afforded by the court to protect the child and their family.
Yes . You will have to testify. If you hire our law firm, we will do everything reasonably possible to prepare you for your testimony, and we will be sitting by your side during your testimony.
Without the help of Marc Wites (my attorney), I believe I would no longer be alive. Marc did not have to represent me, but I think he realized what had happened to me when I was eleven years old was more than a crime; it was horrific. He believed me, not everyone that I told about what had happened did believe me, (my parents, really did not entirely believe me, or they did not want to believe). Marc gathered the evidence so thoroughly. Marc realized that when I had to confront what had happened, one could become suicidal, and Marc took great care, to insure, that I would be better off if the truth was revealed, then to hide from it for the rest of my life. Marc freed me from a self-inflicted prison, I was lost, set adrift, and he let me control the fate of where my law case was going to go. I think Marc is fantastic, he went right for the jugular vein, he knew exactly what to do, and again, I think he is a great person and attorney. I thank Marc for helping me, as I know the outcome of my case would not have been the same without him.Robert M.
Our family has known Marc Wites for almost 10 years, and we have come to know him in a professional and personal capacity during this time. Marc was instrumental in winning significant awards in regard to a car accident case and a personal injury case for us. Marc’s experience and expertise goes beyond those areas. I benefited immensely from his advice recently in resolving another thorny issue. Marc quickly grasped what needed to be done and resolved the problem quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend Marc for his integrity, knowledge, and experience. Marc is a professional attorney you can trust.Joe F.
Marc Wites was referred to me after our home was destroyed in a fire. My only regret was that I waited 4 months to contact Marc thinking that the insurance company would take care of our claim in a timely manor! In a situation like this you need a Professional who is the expert in representing the consumer! Marc Wites and his staff handled the entire process to our complete satisfaction! I highly recommend them!Jack
