Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking Lawyer in Houston

Representing Trafficking Victims Throughout Texas

Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs proudly takes the fight to wrongdoers and abusers who enable, participate in, or actually conduct human trafficking in Texas. Our attorneys know everyone deserves a safe, comfortable life. Human trafficking flies as an affront to this basic human right, and we hope to help bring it to an end through our tenacious, hard-hitting representation for human trafficking survivors.

We are here to advocate for victims of human trafficking by pursuing compensation from the individuals who treated them with such cruelty. The National Institute of Justice defines human trafficking as “the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons by improper means (such as force, abduction, fraud, or coercion) for an improper purpose including forced labor or sexual exploitation.”

If such an act has happened to you or someone you love, to even minimal degrees, justice must be dealt and pursued. Reach out to our law firm right now for legal counsel and moral support.

Why Do You Need to File an Injury Claim?

For many survivors of human trafficking, the thought of going to court in pursuit of damages can seem initially overwhelming and possibly confusing. Many believe that they should be automatically given restitution after their abuser or trafficker was arrested and convicted. However, the criminal justice system stands separately from civil courts, meaning you have to pursue an injury claim on your own.

The compensation you are owed can cover many types of damages, like:

  • Medical costs
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Therapy for traumatization
  • Lessened enjoyment of life
  • Financial instability due to difficulty keeping employment
  • Legal costs associated with criminal and civil proceedings

If you or a loved one has suffered the abuse of human trafficking, do not hesitate to reach out to our firm.
