Sexual Assault Lawyer
Everyone deserves to feel safe. But when an attacker sexually assaults a victim, any feeling of safety is taken away. We help victims become fighters who can hold their attackers responsible.
Too often, attackers assume that their victims will remain silent. We help victims speak out in the courts and even in Georgia’s legislature. We have represented victims who were sexually assaulted in apartment complexes, school classrooms, and churches by criminals, teachers, and pastors. Many times, sexual assault cases settle confidentially before anyone goes to court. Other times, our clients have chosen to file a sexual assault case and confront their attackers in the court system.
Our firm has also fought for victims in the Capitol, where Georgia’s laws are made. We have gone to the Capitol to push for tougher laws that protect victims of rape and sexual assault, hold attackers accountable, and make it easier for victims to come forward.
Victims of sexual assault need help and support, not interrogation and indifference. We’re here to make a difference.
Premises Liability Lawyer
Some apartment or hotel owners choose profit over safety and instead of keeping their tenants or guests safe, they skimp on security measures. That allows criminals onto the property. Predictably, the tenants or guests pay the price—they may become victims of shootings, robberies, sexual assault, and other crimes that would have been prevented if the owner had done the right thing.
Poor security measures can turn innocent people into victims. When a business knows about dangerous activity and has the ability to stop it, the business should do that. If the business doesn’t, the owner or manager may be held liable if another crime—such as a shooting, robbery, or rape—occurs on the property.
The attorneys at Butler Tobin know how to fight back against property owners who break their bargain and fail to provide security. If you or someone you care about has been a victim of a crime that should never have happened, call us or contact us through our website.
An apartment complex has a duty to protect tenants and their guests from foreseeable crime. In this case, an apartment complex failed to provide adequate security, and our client was shot. In this video, we ask the apartment manager HOW MANY violent crimes would have been enough to force the apartment to warn tenants and their guests about the danger.
