Our Commitment to Victim Advocacy

Girard Sharp has substantial experience in class action and other complex litigation on behalf of sexual abuse survivors. Our Sexual Abuse and Women’s Advocacy attorneys have a track record of successfully taking on some of the world’s largest corporations and institutions on these issues. We believe that people who were subjected to sexual abuse deserve to have their cases heard, to be fairly compensated, and to have tenacious and ethical legal representation.

Our attorneys have built a strong track record of recovering compensation for victims of sexual abuse and misconduct, while remaining sensitive to client confidentiality and concerns at all times. We served as co-lead counsel in a class action against the University of Southern California and campus gynecologist George Tyndall on behalf of women who were sexually abused by Tyndall during his long tenure at USC. The settlement established a $215 million fund and gave every survivor a choice in how to participate, as well as requiring USC to adopt and implement procedures for identification, prevention and reporting of sexual and racial misconduct. Our lawyers also filed a class action lawsuit against UCLA on behalf of women treated by UCLA gynecologist James Heaps, who was charged with sexual battery and exploitation of patients while working as a staff gynecologist at UCLA, a position he held for almost thirty years. The UC Regents agreed to resolve the claims for $73 million, plus injunctive relief measures similar to those obtained in the USC case. Both the USC and UCLA sexual abuse settlements were approved as fair, adequate and reasonable by federal courts.
