Sexual harassment cases are particularly troublesome because they are no doubt very embarrassing and frightening to Los Angeles-area victims, so much so that many victims may decide not to even report the issue to their human resources office.
Moreover, these cases are also extremely difficult to prove in many situations, as they often involve one person's word against that of another. In other cases, proving sexual harassment may mean having to describe specific instances in detail which may, standing alone, seem innocent enough but, taken as a pattern of behavior, show sexual harassment.
Our law office understands why many people might not want to file a sexual harassment case, even if they feel that thy have been wronged. While we understand the reluctance, we also make clear to our clients that we are willing and able to do what we legally can to advocate for them and get them the justice they deserve.
In addition to giving our clients sound advice and honest opinions about the strength of their case, we also pride ourselves in taking prompt action at the outset of a case by an immediate and independent investigation in order to get a full understanding of what happened. In other words, we do not simply take what is in the official employment records as gospel truth, knowing that these records are often created with avoiding a lawsuit in mind. Seeking an experienced attorney can help those in such situations proceed with a solid plan of legal action, ideally leading to the justice that is deserved.
