Patton and Patton raise awareness and fund the fight against child abuse in Topeka
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – The law firms Patton and Patton have answered the call of LifeHouse Child Advocacy Center to raise awareness and raise funds to fight against child abuse in the capital.
Patton and Patton, lawyers say on Wednesday, July 27, the LifeHouse Child Advocacy Center challenged 15 men to raise money and awareness about child sexual abuse.
“We chose 15 men because our statistics show that almost 90% of child molesters are men. So we wanted to take the opportunity to highlight that there are good men out there,” LifeHouse Executive Director Kelly Durkin said.
And Topeka’s attorney, Mike Patton, said the appeal was heard.
“We accept the challenge,” Patton said. “We are all excited about the momentum of the LifeHouse Child Advocacy Center.”
Patton said he relishes the opportunity to help LifeHouse achieve its mission.
“They help some of the most vulnerable people in our community who have suffered and endured the worst kinds of harm and survived,” Patton said. “Lifehouse provides common sense services to these victims. LifeHouse has built a team of highly professional people who care deeply about helping the most vulnerable among us. We love the fact that we have the opportunity to help them achieve this mission.
Patton noted that he started his career after graduating from Washburn Law School and his offices are based in the capital. He added that the company also has branches in Lenexa and Wichita.
Patton said the firm provides client service in a variety of legal areas, including personal injury, nursing home negligence, estate planning and long-term disability insurance claims.
