A Note From Paul Mones
Thank you for visiting my website. Since around 1980, I have dedicated my professional career to protecting children. Through my decades of working on behalf of victims of sexual abuse, I have developed a keen understanding of not just the immense strength and courage it takes to acknowledge the devastating harm caused by sexual abuse, but the emotional and psychological obstacles faced by those who seek to hold their abusers and the institutions in which they work or volunteer accountable in a court of law. Filing a lawsuit will not erase a victim’s memories of abuse or the years of pain he or she has had to endure, but is the best way society has to help insure that a victim receives some measure of justice. Vigorous advocacy for survivors of sexual abuse can also help prevent other children from becoming tomorrow’s victims.
Although each case rises and falls on its own merits, the testimonials below reflect Paul’s hard work and dedication on behalf of his clients.
“Paul worked diligently on my case which resulted in an outcome that I could not be more happy with. His passion for helping abuse survivors has allowed him to enter a world of much sorrow and pain. His courage in fighting through that world in order to reach me is what ultimately saved my life. Pulling me out of the darkness of my past and leading me into a bright future, Paul has helped restore my life.”
- Abuse Survivor from New York
"For years I was torn, fearful and ashamed to tell the truth about what had happened to me at the hand of someone whom represented an organization I trusted and admired. This truth has also provided me the opportunity to feel freedom from a situation that was never of my own doing, my wishes or part of my plan. There is a responsibility that victims of abuse share...their truth can perhaps save another young person from the burden of a similar fate of consequence. If it helps only one beside myself, then it was worth it.
Only Paul's steadfast support and his understanding devotion to seeing the correct and right thing through...gave me the strength to bring mine into the light. I will be forever grateful to him for standing beside me."
