New York Teacher Student Sexual Abuse Attorney

Aggressive Legal Representation for Children Abused By Teachers & School Personnel

We send our children to school thinking and believing that they are safe. However, this may not always be the case. There will always be an imbalance of power in a relationship between a teacher and a student. For this reason, New York has enacted special laws to protect students from sexual abuse at the hands of teachers and other school personnel. Any sexual relations between a teacher and a student are prohibited and illegal. School officials are required to report incidents of sexual abuse or any other abuse of students by teachers, coaches, counselor and other school district employees.

Teacher Student Sexual Abuse AttorneyThe New York teacher student sexual abuse lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. are dedicated to holding all school district employees accountable for harming, abusing or mistreating children. We are aggressive, yet compassionate, in fighting for the rights of our young clients and will take every step possible to protect the legal rights of our clients and seek monetary compensation from those individuals who harmed your child and the school districts that allowed it to happen.

Teacher and School Child Abuse: A National Epidemic

Although there has been increase in awareness, sexual abuse of children by teachers remains a serious national problem. There are 3 million public school teachers nationwide, most devoted to their work. However, the number of abusive educators – approximately three for every school day – speaks to a much larger problem in a system that is stacked against victims. Sadly, thousands of students become the victims of sexual abuse by educators each year. The vast majority of these cases go unreported.

If you suspect that your child has been harmed or abused by a teacher or other school employee, you should immediately call law enforcement authorities. You should also call a child abuse attorney to protect your child’s legal rights. At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., our legal team understands the delicate nature of these schoolteacher child abuse cases. While we are sensitive in dealing with our young clients and their concerned parents, we are also aggressive in holding the school employees who caused harm accountable.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city.
