Sexual assault, physical and school/institutional sexual abuse

No win, no fee

At Koffels, we believe that everyone should have access to justice, regardless of their financial situation. That’s why we offer a “no win no fee” arrangement for our professional legal fees when we believe that your case is reasonably likely to succeed.

This means that, with the exception of “out of pocket expenses” such as records and reports, you do not have to pay our professional legal fees unless you are successful in your claim.

We know that pursuing legal action can be stressful, which is why we aim to make the process as simple as possible for our clients. Our dedicated team will be with you every step of the way, keeping you informed and supported throughout.

Get in touch with Koffels today to discuss your institutional sexual abuse claim with one of our expert lawyers.

The settlement of custody and property division will require a practical, realistic, and empathetic approach to reach the best possible outcome for all parties. Because many of these issues will have legal complications, it’s best to enlist the services of a family law specialist who is trained to handle the negotiation and settlement.

The process of divorce is challenging and complicated. When you are going through a divorce (or even thinking about getting one), it requires you to have a solid base of legal information and assistance that can help you make the best decision possible.
