Sex Trafficking Litigation

Sex Trafficking litigation holds vicious traffickers and those that profit from trafficking accountable for their actions. The Department of Justice defines Sex Trafficking as:

  1. a commercial sex act induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age; OR
  2. the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, obtaining, patronizing, or soliciting of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act through the use of force, fraud, or coercion.

According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), there are more than 40 million people around the world who are victims of human trafficking. Over 80 percent are forced into marriages or labor against their will, one-quarter of which are children. Seventy-five percent of the victims are women and girls. Globally, human trafficking represents a $150 billion industry. Twenty percent of that revenue is generated in the U.S.

At Parlatore Law Group, we are passionate about advocating for victims of human trafficking to receive justice. There are many people involved in the trafficking and exploitation of victims, other than the traffickers themselves. Unfortunately, companies like airlines, hotels, rental car agencies, eating establishments and truck stops have at best ignored or at worst been complicit in victims being trafficked. Our team of talented lawyers is passionate about going after these companies that put profit over humanity and allow traffickers to use their services for this heinous crime. 

Types of Matters We Handle:

  • Victim advocacy
  • Litigation against companies who are required, but fail, to provide sex trafficking training, awareness, and education to their employees
  • Litigation against companies and individuals who profit from sex trafficking
  • Coordination of training, education and awareness for service industry employees, managers, and owners to recognize the signs of and to act against sex trafficking in their industry.
