Once you have made the difficult decision to take legal action against a school, church, athletic program, or other institution for the harm done to your child, your next challenge is finding a firm with experience in this highly specialized area of the law. No matter where the abuse took place, our Kansas City law firm will listen to your story and help you find the justice and closure you are looking for.

What We Do

When your child is the victim of sexual assault, harassment, bullying, hazing, or racial discrimination, you want to hold the institution that allowed the abuse to happen responsible. From our suburban Kansas City office in Leawood, KS, we will explore all of your options for taking legal action against any of the following types of institution:

  • Military schools
  • Boarding schools
  • Private day schools
  • Public school districts
  • Athletic teams
  • Daycare centers
  • Churches
  • Summer, day, and religious camps
  • Colleges and universities
  • Bus companies

After experiencing abuse, your child may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, or have other psychological symptoms. We unfortunately also represent parents whose children have committed suicide in the aftermath of abuse. Our legal team is sensitive to these kinds of injuries and losses, and we know how to place a value on these damages to make the institution pay for what they allowed to happen to your child.

You Can Trust Us to Fight for You

You have probably been told that you can’t take on a school or church—that they have immunity from prosecution. Don’t believe it. There are ways to hold even public schools responsible when abuse occurs under their supervision. At DRZ Law, we will look into Constitutional violations, such as discrimination under Title IX and Title VI, and civil rights violations.

You do not have to live in Kansas or Missouri to hire our legal team. Contact our office by phone or by filling out our contact form to find out how we can help—no matter where you live or where your child attends school. If you are in the Kansas City area, we have provided directions to our office below. We look forward to hearing from you!
