Civil / Criminal Defense of Sexual Abuse Allegations


Being the victim of a sexual assault or abuse is truly one of the most devastating things that can happen to anyone at any time.  Likewise being falsely accused of a sexual assault, rape, sodomy, or abuse crime is equally as devastating.  These types of cases require absolute experience and legal expertise in every aspect of the allegations, investigations, and prosecutions.  Unlike other crimes, and contrary to very basic notions of criminal justice, persons accused of sexual assault crimes more often than not must actively pursue proof of their innocence rather than simply rely on the presumption of innocence.

Attorney Judy Barganier’s knowledge of and expertise in investigations and prosecutions of sexual assault crimes and her experience in evaluating forensic interviews of sexual abuse allegations all prove invaluable to her clients, who are faced with proving their innocence in these types of allegations and crimes.

Sexual assault allegations can have a devastating impact on individuals charged with these crimes or against whom such claims are alleged.  The negative effects spill over into the person's family life; they affect their livelihood, and the negative effects to a person’s reputation are usually devastating.

As a former prosecutor of sex crimes against adults and children, Judy H.  Barganier has a thorough working knowledge of the laws, investigation of facts, misunderstandings, prejudices, and other aspects of sexual offenses, and she understands and can evaluate the evidence to provide aggressive legal defense of your rights.

However, that same spouse might experience great difficulty in recognizing his or her own shortcomings, particularly in properly caring for his or her own child. Such a spouse may simply assume that in the absence of any illegal ...

Closed Door Family Law Courtroom and the

Integrity, like character, is often defined by doing what's right even when no one is looking.
