Multiple media outlets have launched investigations into a string of alleged sexual assaults at popular massage chain, Massage Envy. These allegations span several years, revealing a shocking history of misconduct.
In December 2017, a Thornton mother shared her story of alleged misconduct involving her daughter with Denver 7, after she reported “Massage Envy staff and corporate did nothing to investigate or prevent it from happening again.”
The allegation is one of many. A November 2017 investigation by BuzzFeed News revealed, “More than 180 people across the United States have filed sexual assault lawsuits, police reports and other sexual misconduct complaints against Massage Envy spas, their employees and the national company.”
Unfortunately, some state and local laws are set up to protect massage business owners rather than victims. Denver 7 reports, Aurora community leaders are now “taking action to protect victims of sexual assault at massage spas….The city’s new ordinance would make it mandatory for massage therapy business to report any alleged sexual assaults to police, while also cracking down on prostitution and human trafficking through required licensing.”

Choosing the Right Attorney
Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.
Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!
You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:
– RULE 7.3, ABA MODEL RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT.
If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.
Contingency Fees Disclaimer: “Contingent attorneys’ fees refers only to those fees charged by attorneys for their legal services. Such fees are not permitted in all types of cases. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client.”
