Sexual Assault in College

Campus Sexual Assault Attorneys

Sexual assault on our nation’s college campuses is high. 11.2% of all college or university students experience rape or sexual assault at some point in their collegiate life. Among undergraduate students, 23.1% of females and 5.4% of males have been sexually assaulted. On campus, sexual violence is one of the most prevalent crimes but it is not often reported. Many students believe that they were somehow responsible for the assault, because they were intoxicated or because they were dating their attacker at the time. Others believed that they would not be believed or that there was nothing anyone could do to help. If you or someone you love has been a victim of sexual assault in college or university, the campus sexual assault attorneys at the Gold Law Firm can help you bring the people responsible to justice.

Universities have a Responsibility

Sexual assault flourishes on campuses where administrators and educators deny there is a problem. Unfortunately, universities don’t often take the side of the victim and many do not adequately investigate the incidents when reported, over fear of bad publicity. When sexual assault victims do finally come forward, there are frustrating and unclear college disciplinary systems that they must navigate. Even when disciplinary action is eventually taken, it is often light or nonexistent, allowing the culture of sexual violence on campus to continue growing, unchecked.

Drugs & Sexual Assault in College

62% of all sexual assaults on college campuses are facilitated by drugs or alcohol. Alcohol is the number one “date rape drug” on campus, however other drugs are often used as well. Rohypnol or GHB is a banned substance but it is often referred to as the date rape drug. Other drugs include Valium or Ativan or even pain medications, such as Vicodin. When used, these drugs render the victim helpless and unable to give consent. Without proper consent, any form of sexual activity is considered sexual assault and should be reported.

Effects of Sexual Assault in College

Victims of sexual assault in college may endure years battling depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. This can have a ripple effect on their lives, and can make it difficult to complete their education or maintain relationships. Among rape survivors who stayed on campus, one in three had academic problems and one in five considered dropping out of school. Survivors of sexual assault may turn to drugs or alcohol to numb the pain and repress the horrific incident, further complicating their future.

I have worked with Greg Gold and his attorneys on a number of personal injury cases for our clients. His law firm is very creative and extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a car accident, insurance dispute, or catastrophic injury claim.

Jessica Yates -


The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -


This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!

Cannot speak highly enough about the Gold Law Firm. My case was turned over to them when the original firm and the insurance firm reached an impasse. Michael took on the case and stuck with it until an additional settlement was reached. My children have a stress free start in life thanks to the efforts of the Gold Law Firm.
