A special focus on protecting children

Every sexual trauma story is different, and every survivor deserves justice. But there is something especially heinous about sexual assault crimes committed against children. We routinely handle high-profile claims involving:

At Taylor & Ring, we are especially attuned to the trauma that discussing and litigating sexual abuse and assault cases can cause for children. Our firm has represented numerous teenagers and pre-teenagers who have been abused by teachers, or who have suffered due to the neglect of schools and school districts throughout California.


A powerful voice for sex abuse victims

There are at least 2 million survivors of rape and sexual abuse in California right now. Conceivably, that number could be much higher, as “The Bureau of Justice Statistics estimated in its 2016 National Crime Victimization Survey that only 23 percent of rapes or sexual assaults are likely to be reported to law enforcement.”

At Taylor and Ring, we understand how horrific and tragic any type of sexual misconduct is. For most of our clients, the physical trauma and emotional suffering have been debilitating. Many of our clients need help and counseling for years after the assault or abuse. If you or a loved one has been sexually abused or assaulted, please know you are not alone, and you are not powerless.

We represent clients in a range of areas, including:

Whether you are an adult survivor of abuse, or your child has come forward to speak truth to power, we want to help.

Representing victims of USC and Dr. George Tyndall

As of right now, at least six women have filed lawsuits against the University of Southern California and former gynecologist George Tyndall, for sexual misconduct, abuse and harassment. Taylor & Ring is proud to represent one of these brave women, whom we’ll call “J.C.,” in her quest for justice. [Read More]

Resources for victims of abuse

The National Domestic Violence Hotline reports that “On average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States — more than 12 million women and men over the course of a year.” Intimate partner violence – rape or assault perpetrated by a partner, spouse, or known loved one – is one of the most common forms of abuse in this country.

Because of that, it is imperative that survivors have access to the tools, services, and organizations dedicated to protecting them, and their families. Our California sexual abuse attorneys know how critical this help can be, especially for people who have been assaulted by loved ones; in some cases, it can be a matter of life or death. To that end, we are committed to providing our clients with the resources they need in order to protect themselves before, during, and after their case.

$14 Million Settlement

Two adult women sexually abused by their middle school teacher recovered the largest “per victim” settlement in the nation: $7 million each.

Sexual harassment in the workplace

Sexual harassment at work encompasses many different types of improper behavior – verbal and emotional as well as physical. Conduct by the employer or coworkers that creates a hostile work environment is sexual harassment. Workers should not be afraid to come to work, to voice their opinions, or to choose who they socialize with. When employers fail to respect that employees are entitled to make work-related decisions free from any sexual pressure, the employers should be held accountable, so the harassment stops and so the person who was harassed is compensated.

We guide sexual harassment clients through the state and federal laws that govern conduct at work. Our California harassment lawyers handle complex claims involving retaliation and wrongful termination, as well as sex and gender disclination claims. We fight for financial justice for our clients who should see work as a place where success is based on improving the company’s profits and serving the community – instead of how others behave.

We were referred to Taylor and Ring, by a trusted friend who worked for another law firm, as we were looking for someone who was adept with lawsuits against Public School Districts. Taylor and Ring was very professional in agreeing to pursue our case. They were very thorough and accessible throughout our 3+ years in the legal process. David Ring, and his Associates, seemed to genuinely care, not only about our lawsuit, but for our entire family. Their professionalism, diligence, and attention to detail, resulted in a life changing award for our daughter, at the expense of those that harmed her. We couldn't have made a better choice, and we recommend this firm enthusiastically!
