The attorneys at Penn Law specialize in the following types of cases:
• Sexual abuse – These cases require a specialized skill set and level of expertise involving applicable Georgia law. At Penn Law, we recognize that these cases have long-reaching impact that lasts for a victim’s entire life and not just the life-span of the case.
• Sex trade – Sex trafficking is the equivalent of modern day slavery and imprisons hundreds of thousands of people each year. What is worse, these individuals are typically females from other countries outside of the U.S. between the ages of 12-14 years old. Unfortunately, Atlanta has become one of the fastest growing hubs for human trafficking. Recent Georgia laws have gone into effect to protect victims and bring criminal charges against the perpetrators.
• Rape and sexual assault – The attorneys at Penn Law handle rape, statutory rape, and sexual assault cases. Rape is defined as carnal knowledge of a woman forcibly and against her will. Statutory rape is defined as intercourse with an individual under the age of 16. Sexual assault requires a person who has supervisory or disciplinary authority over another and engages in any sexual contact with that person.
