Boston Therapist Abuse Lawyers

Protecting Abuse Victims Nationwide

Mental health practitioners have the power to inflict great harm as well as good on their patients. Their position of authority combined with the vulnerability of their patients creates the potential for countless forms of abuse, exploitation and misconduct. The damage inflicted on patients through such misconduct can be lasting and irreversible.

The Law Offices of SJ Spero & Associates is dedicated to advocating for the rights of victims of therapist abuse. Our Boston-based lawyers have more than three decades of experience representing hundreds of abuse victims across the nation. We devote our practice exclusively to this niche area of law.

We understand the significant harm that stems from therapist abuse, and we know firsthand the doubts and difficulties that victims of such abuse face. We work diligently to help clients obtain justice and closure.

In addition to representing clients in Massachusetts, we also serve as consultants for cases involving abuse victims nationwide.
