Sex Trafficking on Social Media Platforms

Lieff Cabraser is investigating reports of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation occurring on social media platforms across the country, including on Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp, OnlyFans, Facebook, Backpage, and Craigslist. Our investigation has revealed that such companies knowingly permit and financially benefit from sexual abuse that occurs daily on their websites, including by ignoring requests to remove posts that advertise trafficked people for sex and/or solicit and distribute pornographic images of children and other vulnerable people.

We understand that talking to anyone, let alone a lawyer, about these kinds of cases can be difficult and daunting. We also understand that every survivor brings a different level of comfort to the facts of their individual case. While the law does require victims to file suit sooner rather than later, we encourage you to take the time you need to marshal your emotions and gather your energy before using the secure, 100% confidential contact form on this page.

Nationally-Recognized Sexual Assault Lawyers

Lieff Cabraser represents survivors across the U.S. who have been victimized by sexual violence and sexual abuse. We treat every client with care, respect, and compassion as we bring our comprehensive legal skills forward on each case. We have a dedicated team of lawyers, nurse consultants, and paralegals experienced in working with and listening to survivors who work individually with every client in every case to see that justice is won.

If a school, church, sports team, hospital, or another institution failed to protect you from abuse, we may be able to help you hold that institution accountable, and possibly seek compensation and practice changes to prevent that failure from happening again to you or others. We urge you to contact a survivor’s rights lawyer at Lieff Cabraser today about your potential case and recovery.

If you were the victim of abuse unrelated to a larger institution, representation by our firm may not be the best option for your situation. We encourage you to consider representation by other attorneys, as well as support from resources like (another resource for male survivors),, and
