Sexual Assault

Supporting Survivors, Restoring Peace & Power

While we fully understand and appreciate the delicacy and trauma associated with acts of sexual violence, we want to be firm in saying nobody, under any circumstances, ever deserves to have their bodily autonomy and peace taken from them. We believe in this fully and will stand by anyone who needs our help affirming this belief.

Sexual assault survivors are the bravest among us. At Hunter Law Firm, we wish there was no need for our services in these cases, but we also understand that there are some who wish to ignore boundaries and attempt to leave others feeling powerless.

Tennessee law defines sexual assault (referred to as battery in the law) under Code § 39-13-505 as “unlawful sexual contact with a victim by the defendant or the defendant by a victim.” These acts include but are not limited to:

  • Rape or attempted rape
  • Unwanted touching
  • Forcing a victim to perform sexual acts through coercion, intimidation, or fraud

We want to use our experience and expertise through the law to get you the outcome you deserve after being assaulted. Contact Hunter Law Firm and work with an attorney who will lead your case with compassion and care.
