Dordulian Law Group believes your story. Our Los Angeles rape victims attorneys are standing by ready to help – without judgment, without skepticism, and with a compassionate ear. Your voice deserves to be heard. At Dordulian Law, we’ve been fighting for rape survivors’ rights for years, bringing powerful and swift justice to those who would commit this unspeakable crime against another person.
Lead attorney and firm founder, Sam Dordulian, is a former deputy district attorney who spent the first decades of his career putting rapists behind bars in Los Angeles. Now, he’s ready to fight for your right to be financially compensated for what you’ve been through.
Simply put, California law defines rape as sexual intercourse that occurs without the consent of one of the parties involved.
It’s estimated that less than a third of rapes are reported to the police. This tragic figure represents how far we have to go as a society before we stop excusing the terrible behavior of others and start believing victims wholeheartedly when they come forward.
It can be very hard to get a felony conviction against an accused rapist – some data puts the conviction rate around 1%. That’s where a civil trial can come in to provide some semblance of justice served, when the criminal options can feel limited.
2,455 rapes were reported to police in California in the year 2017 alone. In every single one of those cases, it was the attacker’s fault – not the victim’s. It is not your fault.
Rape victim statistics from the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) provide sobering insight into where and how these attacks are occurring. Over two thirds (67%) of rapes occur in or near the victim’s home, or a relative’s home. About 25% of rapes occur in a public space, either enclosed or open. And finally, a full 8% of rapes occur at school.
Dordulian Law Group Is Uniquely Qualified To Represent Rape Survivors
There are few law firms in Los Angeles that can stand on the kind of record that Dordulian Law Group has when it comes to representing victims of rape and sexual assault. We’ve made it our primary area of urgent focus, and the team we’ve constructed to aggressively pursue these cases is uniquely qualified to do so.
As mentioned earlier, Sam Dordulian is a former Deputy District Attorney for Los Angeles, specializing in prosecuting rape and sex crimes. His decades of work in this area has resulted in the successful prosecution and imprisonment of countless dangerous criminals who no longer walk the streets.
In addition to Mr. Dordulian, we’re pleased to have Moses Castillo as our chief investigator on staff. Detective Castillo spent nearly 30 years on the LAPD as a senior detective in the sex crimes unit, with an incredible track record of relentlessly pursuing justice for victims.
If you’re considering filing a civil suit against your attacker, it may be because some statistics show that less than 3% of rapists will actually go to prison. This upsetting statistic is rooted in many different types of societal dysfunction, including a general “blame the victim” mentality, unclear laws, and other problems.
