The Legal Team Fighting for OSU Strauss Survivors

Experienced and award-winning sexual abuse attorneys


Experience with sexual abuse cases

A dozen attorneys from around the country have joined forces to fight for the legal rights of Ohio State alumni sexually abused by Dr. Richard Strauss.

The legal team stands out in that the lead attorneys have committed their practice to protecting sexual abuse survivors and holding institutions accountable for their actions.

As a result of working with sexual abuse survivors for years, the attorneys have a unique understanding of what this insidious crime does to the physical and emotional well being of the individual.

A unique understanding of the harm caused by sexual abuse

Our legal teams gets it. This is not a case of groping or fondling. This is a case of rape.

There is no doubt that more than a thousand OSU alumni were sexually violated in the worst of ways by Dr. Richard Strauss while the university allowed this to happen.

In our experience, the harm caused by sexual abuse lasts a lifetime. It may result in broken relationships, a loss of trust, missed professional opportunities, alcoholism, drug use, or suicidal thoughts. We fight for compensation for what OSU's actions did to you, and not so much based on the sexual act performed by Strauss. The case is about ensuring that you get fair compensation for the harm that has been inflicted upon you the last 20+ years and for the rest of your life.
