A powerful voice for sex assault and rape victims

There are about 8.6 million survivors of sexual violence, and at least 2 million female survivors of rape, in California right now. Conceivably, that number could be much higher. According to the Rape, Abuse & Incent National Network (RAINN), only one of every three sexual assaults are reported to police.

At Taylor & 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.

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 cases involving childhood sexual abuse:

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 minors who have been abused by teachers, counselors, staff, and even other students, or who have suffered due to the neglect of schools and school districts throughout California.

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

Fighting for the civil rights of victims of police brutality & misconduct

The number of officer-related shootings and attacks is increasing, and antiquated, dangerous policies place more value on the lives of officers than on the lives of the people they hurt. If your civil rights have been violated by a local, state, or federal law enforcement officer or agency, Taylor & Ring is prepared to help. Our Los Angeles police brutality attorneys have secured millions of dollars on behalf of victims of law enforcement. We also represent families of men and women whose loved ones have died in police shootings and while in custody in wrongful death lawsuits.
