The SGGH team of abuse lawyers represents students and former students around the country who were victims of sexual and physical abuse. If you or a loved one suffered sexual or physical abuse while enrolled at a private boarding school, you may be entitled to compensation. 

The SGGH team of abuse lawyers represent students and former students from the following boarding schools:

  • Lord’s Ranch in Arkansas;
  • Timber Ridge in Arkansas;
  • Feather River Prep in California;
  • St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy in Wisconsin;
  • A boarding school (confidential) in the Northeast region of the United States

These cases have involved physical and sexual abuse of students who are enrolled at boarding schools and away from their families. Many survivors who were abused years ago as children, have recently learned about institutional cover-ups, and are coming forward now as adults to seek justice, accountability, and closure.

SGGH continues to fight vigorously for survivors in both pre-suit proceedings and resolution processes, as well as in active litigation. In cases where lawsuits had been filed, clients have had the choice to pursue their case using their legal name or a pseudonym (being referred to in the complaint and litigation as “John Doe” or “Jane Doe” to protect their identity from the public). In recognition of the sensitive nature of these types of cases, most jurisdictions have laws or procedures in place that provide additional protections to survivors of sexual and physical abuse.

Our attorneys and trial lawyers have decades of experience litigating and obtaining verdicts and settlements for clients all across the country for those who have been injured or abused. Lawyers at SGGH have assisted in cases recovering more than $2 billion in verdicts and settlements for injured individuals. 

Some of these results are record-setting in Illinois and around the country. 

Sexual and physical abuse is a grave matter that typically results in a lifetime of struggle and permanent psychological and physical changes.

While we can’t undo what happened to you or your child, we can help you get compensation to help you meet the challenges you face. If you or a loved one believes you experienced sexual abuse or physical abuse, please Contact SGGH Today for a Free Consultation at (312)728-7444 or contact us online.
