Dallas trial lawyer Charla Aldous represented Jane Doe who filed suit against the Episcopal School of Dallas, based on the fact that an ESD teacher had involved her in a sexual relationship when she was only 16. Charla won a jury verdict of $9.3 million in that case.

Charla Aldous: The ESD case kind of took a life of its own, and I never envisioned that happening. I took that case because I had to - I could not have lived with myself if I had not taken Jane Doe's case. That little girl and her family, I can remember like it was yesterday, the first time she came to see me she was broken. Her world had been shattered, and she had suffered things a young lady should never have to suffer through at her tender age.

To see the way that she evolved because she had a voice and because people who had wronged her had been held accountable was one of the most rewarding things in my career. I do think it's because I did see her when she was broken, and I see her now. I see not only did she have a voice, not only is she stronger because of what she went through, but she has been a voice for sexual abuse victims everywhere.
