Delivering Justice for Survivors of Clergy Sexual Abuse in New York

Like many other clergy sexual abuse survivors, our clients Diana, Keith, and Stanley thought no one would believe their stories about what predators had done to them—the church was above reproach. They suffered in silence. But now there is a reason to speak up.

Sexual Abuse Survivors

For a limited time, the New York Child Victims Act revives legal claims of many adults who, as children, were sexually abused by clergy in New York. Many survivors now have the opportunity to seek compensation and to hold their abusers and the church that protected predator priests accountable. We would welcome the opportunity to help you seek the justice you deserve.

Time is of the Essence

Contact the sexual abuse lawyers at Janet, Janet & Suggs to find out if you are eligible to bring a claim for the torment you have endured, and are continuing to endure. It is imperative that you act without delay, as the New York window of opportunity will close in August 2020.

File a Claim Now

JJS would welcome the opportunity to help you bring a timely and persuasive lawsuit, if this is the best choice for your case. Our goal is to help you achieve a full measure of justice and the peace of mind that goes along with it.

Many dioceses have established compensation funds from which survivors can be compensated, but they have been short-changing survivors with small settlement offers that are designed for people who can’t pursue a full-scale litigation. With the revival window, survivors now have the leverage to be compensated with the amounts they deserve.

Whatever avenue you want to pursue, JJS can help you present your claim in the most powerful way possible.

"The shame, embarrassment, feeling of low self-worth, and scores of 'labels' we give ourselves are not fitting. He was a big man, I was a little boy."

Confidentiality

All communications with clients are confidential and privileged. While some survivors are comfortable sharing their names publicly, others may prefer maintaining privacy in these matters. If we were to file a lawsuit on your behalf, we could identify you only as a Jane Doe or John Doe.
