How Sexual Assault Lawyers Can Help Rape Victims Trapped In Their Leases

Rape and sexual assault are terrible things for anyone to go through. Imagine if the experience was dragged out because you had to live near your abuser.  This is something that has happened in Arizona, and until recently women who were assaulted had no real option for getting away in that kind of case. One Arizona woman who was raped by a neighbor, then unable to move because she was still held to her lease, worked with Arizona lawmakers to change the statute that requires a tenant to pay a fee to break a lease. In some cases, that fee […]
