School and Institutional Abuse Attorneys | Romanucci & Blandin

Schools and other institutions should be safe spaces for whatever their specific function is. If lines are crossed and abuse does happen, the attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin have had significant experience in handling these cases to ensure victims get the justice they deserve.

What is school and institutional abuse?

School and institutional abuse is a form of sexual abuse perpetuated against minors when a teacher or any other staff member uses their power and position to exploit or sexually abuse a member(s) of the student body.

This form of abuse is a highly dehumanizing occurrence that can cause psychological and emotional damage that can last a lifetime.
