Childhood Sexual Abuse Victims
The law firm of Kosnoff Fasy is located in Seattle, Washington, but its practice extends across the United States. Our attorneys exclusively represent childhood sexual abuse victims.
We're frequently asked: Why do your attorneys have so much experience in this area of law?
Very few lawyers have had the opportunity to litigate the kinds of cases in the volume that Kosnoff Fasy has handled and is currently handling.
Our experience stretches back many years. That’s because the Washington state Legislature passed the child-sexual-abuse "discovery" statute in 1989. It was the first state in the country to pass a special child sexual abuse statute of limitations.
It provided that a victim of child sexual abuse could bring a civil action based upon child sexual abuse within three years of the victim a) recalling the abuse; or b) discovering his or her emotional and psychological damages; or discovering the causal link between the childhood abuse and the injuries incurred.
The effect of this law was to give sexual-abuse victims, who were past the personal injury statute of limitations (age 21), to bring suit. This allowed thousands of victims abused in Washington state to hire an attorney and sue their abusers and their institutional enablers.
By contrast, most statutes of limitation in other states have barred these claims.
The attorneys at Kosnoff Fasy have been successful trial lawyers collectively for nearly 40 years. They have the experience and resources to take on virtually any opponent. Because they handled so many large-scale lawsuits, they frequently appear on television and in the news. They often use the opportunities afforded by media coverage to shine a light on sexual predators and their protectors, while publicizing the terrible societal and individual costs that childhood sexual abuse has on survivors.
