Catholic Clergy Sexual Abuse: Protecting the Flock from the Shepherds

An increasing flood of reported Catholic clergy abuse and the lengths to which the Church has gone to conceal and protect child sex abusers has shocked the nation and the world. Finally, after decades of ignored allegations against clergy, changes are being made so the survivors of this abuse can speak out to seek justice.

A common thread running through many reports of Catholic sexual abuse is a pattern or "playbook" used by the Church to repeatedly and deliberately conceal horrific acts against children. This pattern includes a systematic process of shuffling accused priests from one parish to another following allegations, a track record of defending 'predator priests' over innocent children, and repeated, deliberate attempts to conceal this malfeasance to prevent "scandal."

The nationally recognized trial lawyers at Janet, Janet & Suggs, LLC have helped thousands of survivors of sexual assault—many of them minors—get the justice they deserve. Our Sexual Abuse Division is led by preeminent sexual abuse attorney Richard M. Serbin, one of the first legal advocates for victims of abuse by clergy in the US.
