LAWSUITS

Robert Hadden Sexual Abuse Cases

Robert Hadden, a disgraced Obstetrician-Gynecologist (OB/GYN) who worked for Columbia University and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, was criminally convicted in 2016 of sexually exploiting and abusing patients under the guise of medical care.
Hadden used his position of authority and trust to sexually exploit women and girls for nearly 25 years as a Columbia University physician.
All the while, Columbia University and New York-Presbyterian Hospital administrators turned their backs and ignored reports of Hadden’s abuse, gaslighting patients and the public.

Darius Paduch Sexual Abuse Cases

Evidence continues to emerge regarding Darius Paduch’s patterns of performing inappropriate and medically unnecessary “diagnostic techniques” that included digitally raping men without gloves, medically unnecessary follow-up appointments designed solely to allow Paduch to further sexually abuse patients, and grooming minor patients over text messages. While pretending to be a urologist at a well-known medical institution in New York City, Paduch used his power and position of trust in order to sexually exploit and abuse victims under the guise of medical treatment.
Paduch is now facing a federal criminal prosecution, as well as 60 years in prison. Since the first lawsuit was filed back in December, dozens of more patients have now come forward to join the civil lawsuits.

  • Other Utah health care providers; and
  • He also had adverse action taken against his medical license back in 1990.

Frequently Asked Questions

We only work on a contingency basis. That means you don’t pay anything unless we win. If we don’t win, then you don’t owe us anything.
If you’re speaking with a lawyer, and they ask you to pay money upfront for things like court fees or the cost of an expert to review your medical records, run! You don’t have to come to me. But go to someone else. No lawyer worth their salt will charge you anything out of pocket to handle a case like this. And that’s important for two reasons. If a lawyer is willing to take your case on a contingency fee, it means: (1) they believe in your case, and (2) they believe in themselves. In order for us to get any legal fees, we have to win your case.
I understand how difficult it can be when trying to come to terms with what happened. Because of this, our firm is the first law firm in the nation to hire psychologists, therapists and social workers to help clients cope with these challenges. What’s even more important is that we’re offering these services at absolutely no cost to you.Regardless of whether you want a little help completing one of the forms, or if you’re interested in regular therapy appointments, we’re here to help you navigate this process. All you need to do is just call and ask.

Our Founder Anthony T. DiPietro, Esq. was recently selected as one of the Top 10 Trial Attorneys in the Country in cases involving Women’s Rights. He’s also one of the nation’s Top 100 Litigators amongst all legal specialties. Mr DiPietro personally handles all of our cases for litigation, settlement negotiations and trials. When you’re searching for a law firm, make sure to choose one that actually litigates and tries cases. So many firms out there are nothing more than “mills” that are adverse for cases but then send their clients out to other law firms to do the work. The reason they do this is that they make money off of referral fees and not actually doing legal work. If you end up with one of those firms, you’ll never know who will actually be working on your case or what their lawyers’ level of expertise is. Over the past two decades, our attorneys have been dedicated to representing victims and survivors of sexual exploitation and abuse, as well as patient safety. We keep all of the cases “in house” and never refer them out to other law firms.
