The unfortunate reality is that crimes occur every day in and around the San Francisco area. Most people tend to focus on the perpetrator of the crime, but victims are the ones that suffer. Not only do victims of crimes sustain physical and emotional harm, but these events also affect the lives of the victim’s family. At Okabe & Haushalter, our San Francisco victim representation attorneys believe that crime victims deserve compensation and closure for what happened to them. We are ready to help if you or a loved one have been victimized by a criminal act. Let us stand by your side, investigate your case, and secure the compensation you need through a civil lawsuit.

Criminal charges and prosecution are the responsibility of state authorities. If a person is found guilty of a crime, this could result in them spending time in jail or prison, paying fines, and having to pay restitution to victims. Unfortunately, victims of crimes rarely receive any closure or compensation at the conclusion of a criminal case.
At Okabe & Haushalter, we help victims hold perpetrators of crimes accountable for their actions through civil lawsuits in court. Our attorneys regularly help crime victims of the following types of crimes:
The goals of our San Francisco victim representation attorneys revolve around ensuring that you, as the victim of a crime, receive restitution and closure for what happened to you. That is why we regularly seek compensation for any medical bills you incurred, coverage for any pain and suffering you have endured, the replacement of destroyed property, and even punitive damages against the offender.
We also understand how important it is to maintain your privacy throughout the entirety of your case. As a victim, we will not require you to give a deposition or answer questions under oath before the court or in front of your offender. Our goal is to protect your identity from the public and the media to ensure your safety and the safety of your family.
