Vincent T. Nappo

Senior Associate

Vincent fights hard for survivors of childhood sexual abuse to obtain justice against abusers and the entities who facilitate such atrocities.  The effects of childhood sexual abuse are devastating and long-lasting on the victims and their families.  Most survivors live for many years in shame, afraid to confront the trauma they experienced.  For too long, powerful entities like the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts of America marginalized and ignored victims, leading to a culture of secrecy.  Vincent devotes the bulk of his practice towards empowering and providing a voice to these men, women, and children, and, for years, has successfully litigated claims against individual perpetrators, the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts of America, school districts, daycare centers, the Department of Social and Health Services, and the State of Washington, among others.  In recent years, Vincent has expanded his practice to represent survivors of human sex trafficking, including children sold for sex on the Backpage.com website.  In addition to his work on behalf of abuse survivors, Vincent’s practice includes complex injury cases involving civil rights violations, government liability, and medical malpractice.

Outside of the office Vincent is involved in a number of community activities.   He served on the Board of Trustees for the KCBA Young Lawyers Division, and currently serves as Secretary/Treasurer of the WSBA Litigation Section Committee.  Additionally, he volunteered for the King County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) on behalf of abused and neglected children, and worked with the Northwest Immigrants’ Rights Project to bring U-Visa petitions on behalf of undocumented victims of domestic violence.  Vincent continues to remain active in community and lobbying efforts to protect children through sensible public policy and law initiatives at the federal and state level.
