We have nearly three decades of experience working with survivors of clergy sexual abuse. We have litigated cases nationwide against Catholic dioceses and religious orders, protestant religious organizations, and individual offenders. In each case, we strive to work directly with the survivor to empower him or her to regain their dignity and recover their power.
In recent years we have helped expose the problem of sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts of America. Abuse by Scoutmasters and Scout Leaders of young boys participating in community Boy Scout programs is a tragic example of sexual abuse committed by close and trusted mentors. Our work with survivors of sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts revealed thousands of pages of internal Boy Scout “perversion” files and led to the exposure of dozens of Scout leaders who have been accused of abuse.
Our experience litigating sexual abuse cases includes cases of abuse by teachers and coaches in schools across the country.
For too long, the entertainment industry has intentionally covered-up the sexual abuse of children and adults. From models, actors, and musicians to executive assistants and designers, workers in the entertainment industry have been abused and silenced by powerful, high-ranking professionals. Survivors no longer have to stay silent. It’s time to pave pathways of power for survivors. It’s time to transform laws and social attitudes. It’s time to cleanse the entertainment industry of sexual predators and those who cover up their crimes.
Abuse by Individual Offenders
We have handled a number of cases of childhood sexual abuse involving individual offenders. Whether abuse by a teacher, coach, family member, community leader, friend, or stranger, each case is unique and requires special attention and consideration.
