Thank you for standing by me and believing in me. You never gave up on me. When the odds were against me and I felt I didn’t have a chance, you kept reassuring me not to give up hope. I still can’t believe the amount after the deposition. I felt I didn’t stand a chance. You are the most amazing person and I am indebted to you forever! To my hard working attorney

Leonard Law Firm went beyond the norm to ensure our case was settled. He was an exemplary lawyer whose services were a nice welcome considering all the aggravation my wife and I would have gone through had he not covered all aspects of our case. We are so thankful to him and his office. His knowledge of the case set our lives at ease. He was relentless until the case was fully settled and all was in our favor. Thank you so much. We highly recommend his office to anyone.

We Handle Sexual Assault Injuries and Sexual Abuse Cases
What is Sexual Assault and Sexual Abuse?
Sexual assault or abuse is defined as any form of unwanted sexual advance, such as inappropriate sexual touching or contact by force, or threat without consent. It is also sexual activity deemed improper or harmful, such as between an adult and a minor or with a person of diminished mental capacity. These situations can cause lifelong pain, suffering, and feelings of shame and worthlessness. Instances of sexual assault or sexual abuse can include:
Sexual abuse is unacceptable and its perpetrators must be held accountable. You may be unsure of where to turn for help after you or a loved one becomes the victim of a sex crime. Our attorneys have decades of experience handling these sensitive matters and understand how long-lasting and scarring they can be.
Why Work with the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm?
Attorney Todd Leonard handles personal injury claims and fights hard to protect the rights of victims. For example, we have represented people who were victims of:
We believe our extensive experience is extremely valuable when we provide legal help to sex abuse survivors. From a legal perspective, part of the challenge in a sex abuse lawsuit is translating the harm done to our client into a dollar amount. We have successfully filed lawsuits against employers, school boards and schools, police departments, camps, and the clergy and church.
Our New Jersey sexual assault attorneys have filed lawsuits in both federal and state court depending on the facts and circumstances of the sexual abuse or assault to obtain justice for our clients. Pursuant to 42 USC 1983, sexual abuse victims have rights to receive compensation for injuries resulting from the deprivation of their civil rights provided under the Constitution. For example, the Due Process Clause provides that a state shall not “Deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”
Experienced Sexual Abuse Attorney Helping People Like You
Civil sex abuse cases can be complex because proving allegations of sexual abuse is challenging, especially in cases where there is little or no physical evidence, or where the abuse occurred in the past. The New Jersey sex abuse attorneys of the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm have tremendous experience representing victims of sex abuse in civil lawsuits seeking to recover financial compensation for the harm done to them.
We are an experienced sex abuse law firm that practices discretion and compassion when we work with survivors of sexual abuse. You will find our skilled attorney to be protective towards you and extremely aggressive towards the perpetrator. We will also work with local police and county prosecutors throughout any criminal proceedings against perpetrators and will take the appropriate steps to obtain key discovery materials, which often requires our sex abuse lawyer to file a motion with the Court.

We have tremendous experience working with experts in the fields of medicine, mental and physical health care, school boards, and other necessary fields. Our relationships with respected experts in these fields allow us to build strong and convincing arguments on behalf of sex abuse survivors who seek to file civil suits.
