Suing the doctors that provided your gender-affirming treatment is one of many options to help you find support and amends in this deeply personal journey. We believe that you have a right to advocate for yourself, and hold accountable those that have wronged you.

Know you are not alone. There is an increasing number of individuals that have de-transitioned, meaning they have stopped hormone therapies or reversed their gender treatments. There are resources for you to find support in your detransition journey as well.

If you believe you received gender-specific treatment that was not appropriate for your condition, you may be eligible to pursue a legal claim against your medical providers. Please contact our team with your story for further analysis.

Proceeding with a lawsuit is a lengthy and risky process. There are a number of steps to consider, including but not limited to, filing the lawsuit, conducting fact discovery, potential mediation or settlement processes, and even potentially undergoing a jury trial. While this process may sound daunting, if we take your case, we have tremendous experience in each and every one of these steps. We only take cases that we believe have a legitimate claim. If you are interested in discussing the benefits and risks of a lawsuit, please contact us.

We cannot guarantee that you will receive compensation, or how much you would receive. However, we will pursue the maximum amount of compensation you may be legally entitled to. There are a variety of factors that could influence your recovery, including the cost of your treatments, including future therapy and post-operative care; the extent to which you have suffered physically and emotionally; and the ability for you to work or have a family in the future. Please note that this list is not exhaustive.

Medical malpractice claims are generally handled on a contingent fee basis, meaning the lawyers are only paid if you recover.

If you wish to proceed anonymously, our legal team can attempt to file the lawsuit using a pseudonym. However, it is ultimately up to a court as to whether your suit can proceed anonymously or not.

Whether the harm occurred to you or your child, we want to hear your story.
