A specialized group of attorneys in our Litigation Department provides representation, counseling and other litigation services to schools, educational institutions, religious corporations, mental health facilities and foster care agencies. In addition to general tort actions arising out of premises liability and improper supervision, attorneys in this unit are highly experienced in handling complex tort claims involving alleged Federal Civil Rights (42 U.S.C. § 1983) violations and claims based on allegations of physical and sexual assault and abuse brought in the State and Federal Courts. These sensitive claims raise complex liability and insurance issues with which we are well versed. Our experience in defending these cases, while always mindful of the special considerations each party deserves, has thus enabled us to resolve these claims successfully, efficiently, and economically to our clients’ satisfaction.
