At Pasic Law, we are specially trained in the niche area of litigating both adult and child sexual assault and abuse cases. We represent survivors. We sue both individual offenders and organizations responsible for fostering environments that allow sexual assault to occur; covering up perpetrators' misconduct; negligently hiring, retaining, and supervising perpetrators of sexual crimes; and failing to protect victims through inadequate policies and procedures. We make sure survivors are heard and wrongdoers are held accountable financially. We pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, psychological and emotional damages, and punitive and treble damages.

We are experts in California's groundbreaking legislation, the California Child Victims Act (AB 218), which:


  • Opened a three-year window, beginning on January 1, 2020, for survivors of childhood sexual assault of any age to file claims against their perpetrators and the institutions that protect them, regardless of when the abuse occurred

  • Expanded the definition of childhood sexual abuse to include sexual assault, and

  • Increased the statute of limitation for commencing an action for recovery of damages as a result of sexual assault or abuse to the age of 40 or within 5 years of the date the survivor discovers psychological injury or illness occurring after the age of 18 was caused by the childhood sexual assault, whichever is later

We also represent adult survivors of sexual abuse (that is, where the sexual abuse occurred in adulthood). Generally speaking, adult survivors of sexual assault have 10 years to file a claim in California, or three years from the date the survivor discovers or should have discovered that the injury or illness resulted from the sexual act.

In addition to representing survivors of sexual assault, our mission at Pasic Law is to move away from a culture where sexual assault and abuse are all-too-common and toward a future of zero tolerance for such misconduct. In that regard, we advise and counsel private and public organizations on how to prevent, identify, and respond to grooming behaviors and sexual offenses through training and implementation of thorough and up-to-date policies and procedures.
