The DiPietro Law Firm Has Experience Representing Victims of Robert Hadden

One of the first things you need to look for in a lawyer is experience handling cases similar to your own.

Not every lawyer can represent your sexual abuse case effectively.

You need a lawyer who is knowledgable about your case, and also about the laws concerning sexual abuse in New York City, where Hadden practiced as an OBGYN for over 20 years.

If you need one sign that you’ve got the right lawyer representing you in your lawsuit against Columbia University and Robert Hadden, it’s the lawyer’s experience in representing clients in sex abuse cases.

The best way to determine your lawyer’s experience is to ask questions about the lawyer’s track record in cases, number of years they’ve been in practice, and how their firm’s staff handles their clients.

Anthony T. DiPietro has been practicing law for over 20 years, and has committed his career to representing victims of sexual assault and medical malpractice.

Founding The DiPietro Law Firm in January 2003, Anthony has represented clients from all walks of life and has secured several significant verdicts and settlements.

The DiPietro Law Firm’s Proven Track Record in Sexual Assault Cases

Besides experience, your lawyer must also have a proven track record of representing clients in sexual assault cases.

Your attorney should possess a respectable track record showing that they’ve won settlements in and out of the courtroom.

The DiPietro Law Firm has a stellar reputation in representing victims of sexual assault and medical malpractice.

Our law firm has secured millions for victims of these crimes, and we have been the leader in civil litigation for Hadden sexual abuse since the beginning.

In two settlements, The DiPietro Law Firm has secured over $236 million in compensation for women and girls abused by Hadden.

Our Law Firm Has Past Success Out of the Courtroom

Once you’ve seen your attorney’s track record, your research will have to branch into successes in the courtroom and successful cases outside of it.

Begin with your attorney’s out-of-court success rate.

Federal trial proceedings — while necessary for actions against the predatory former Columbia University gynecologist Robert Hadden — are lengthy.

Worse yet, these proceedings can be expensive, especially with federal prosecutors involved.

If you want a quicker and more affordable settlement, your best option would be an attorney who has success winning settlements outside the courtroom.

An experienced sex abuse attorney can establish that abuse occurred, develop your case, and win you a settlement that doesn’t involve a judge, jury, or a panel of defense attorneys.

Accused of sexually abusing many patients, Hadden has already been convicted of sexually abusing patients.

Nevertheless, there’s significant evidence that Columbia University and administrators of prestigious Manhattan hospitals are complicit in Hadden’s heinous crimes.

This means that a scenario where you may face resistance against these hospitals isn’t far off.

With these in mind, you’ll need an attorney who can win on your behalf against Hadden and these hospitals.

Anthony T. DiPietro is the attorney for the job.

Reach out now if you need an attorney who can win you a settlement out of the courtroom in New York.

The DiPietro Law Firm is Ready for Trial if Things Escalate

The former Columbia University gynecologist Robert Hadden has been criminally convicted of sexually abusing patients.

While Hadden will probably be in prison for the rest of his life, we shouldn’t forget the involvement of other parties in his routine sexual abuse of patients.

Columbia University and its affiliated hospitals have been involved in Hadden’s heinous crimes since the very beginning.

High-profile institutions like the New York Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University’s Irving Medical Center knew of Hadden’s sexual crimes since at least 1994 but did nothing to stop it.

Hadden cruelly lured women to his medical offices for years in these hospitals, and was allowed to see patients in private with no chaperone.

In these hospitals, Hadden assaulted dozens of female patients, including multiple minors.

Columbia even let Hadden continue to see patients in private after he was arrested in their offices for licking a patient during a bogus exam.

These instances of abuse occurred for years without the intervention of Columbia University and the hospitals.

Columbia University silenced women who spoke out about the abuse they suffered and refused to notify law enforcement.

Why is this important?

Institutional involvement is crucial to consider in cases of sexual assault by a doctor.

Institutions want to protect their public image, and they will exhaust every option to discredit anyone who files a lawsuit.

Besides paying off victims under the guise of compensation and reparations, these institutions can opt for a trial.

When they do, you need an attorney who’s also ready to represent you in court, with a respectable track record representing victims of sexual abuse in court.

The DiPietro Law Firm Treats Every Client Respectfully and Uniquely

No two cases of sexual assault, personal injury, or medical malpractice are exactly alike.

Each case will be as unique as the people involved in them.

The circumstances surrounding the abuse a person has suffered may dictate how much a person can recover in compensation.

With this in mind, you must choose an attorney who treats every case uniquely.

It’s not easy to find a dedicated and experienced New York City sexual harassment lawyer who does this.

However, you can look at certain behaviors or actions that can prove their attention to your specific situation.

Your attorney should always be attentive to your needs as a victim, answering any question you have and being reachable at the moments you need them most.

Attorney Anthony T. DiPietro represents victims of sex abuse and has secured compensation for over 200 women involved in civil litigation against Columbia University and its affiliates.

Despite handling hundreds of cases, Anthony T. DiPietro never ceases to treat each client respectfully and uniquely.
