Advancing & Enforcing Victim Rights

L.L. Dunn Law Firm zealously advances and enforces victims’ rights in campus, criminal, and civil systems nationwide through survivor-focused and trauma-informed legal services.

Practice Areas

Campus

Our Firm keeps K-12, college, and graduate campuses free from sex- or gender-based harassment and violence by serving as advisors during sexual misconduct proceedings. We help victims file complaints, obtain safety measures and academic accommodations, navigate the investigation and adjudication process, and file appeals as needed.  

Criminal

Our Firm can assist victims in accessing and enforcing their rights during criminal proceedings in Maryland, Virginia, and D.C.  This includes support filing a complaint, communicating with law enforcement and prosecutors, and advancing rights during proceedings.  Our Firm also serves as co-counsel to defend victims facing charges for false reports nationwide.

Civil

Our Firm can undertake civil litigation on a contingency-fee basis to aid survivors in holding both perpetrators and enablers, such as educational institutions, accountable.  In addition to helping victims recover damages, we often work with our clients to ensure policies and other changes are made to keep campuses safer for the next generation of students.
