Driven by Values

Survivor-Focused

Survivors come first here. When parents, advocates, and other third parties contact our legal team, we immediately center the survivor and form a privileged attorney-client relationship grounded in trust and transparency.

Trauma-Informed

As a survivor-founded law practice, we know firsthand the toll sexual abuse can take, so our work focuses on mental, emotional, and physical safety during ongoing legal processes so that our clients can heal while seeking justice.

Non-Partisan

As a DC-based firm, we oppose political polarization around the issue of campus sexual violence and advocate that all institutions firmly reject sexual misconduct while ensuring a due process before holding perpetrators accountable for the life-long harms that they inflict.

High-Impact

While our legal team unwaveringly supports survivors’ right to seek justice through means that ensure their privacy, our team is known nationwide for taking on high-impact cases where survivors engage media and student advocacy to create much needed social change.

Let's Work Together!

I could not be more pleased with the work that Laura Dunn did in my case. She was dedicated, responsive, and attentive to not only the details of my case but to who I was as a person and survivor. She diligently addressed every single one of my concerns and questions, making sure that I was educated and comfortable at every step. Laura’s survivor-focused and professional approach ensured that I secured justice in my case and received the closure that I needed. I am positive that without Laura’s expertise and support, I would not have made it through such a daunting and difficult process. I highly recommend Ms. Dunn to all survivors seeking justice!” ~ Becca
