Victim of Dr. Levy
“Our trial started 1 year ago today. I can't believe it's been a year. I remember it all like yesterday! We think of you all often and especially today.
A lot of change is happening around Taylor's life. We built an addition with attached garage. The project is about to be finished up. We are very excited. It is amazing to load Taylor in a heated garage instead of the cold, pouring rain! Just amazing. Taylor now has a large bedroom on the main floor (lower windows, light switch etc). We will get her moved in in the coming weeks. She will also have an accessible bathroom. All hallways are now 4 ft wide for her wheelchair. We've installed an elevator so she can access all levels of the house. We will also have a therapy room downstairs. We've purchased a side by side vehicle so she is able to access the farm. She absolutely loves this.
Please know Taylor's life (and ours) have truly been changed. We will forever be grateful that our paths crossed.”
“My sister saw an 800 number advertisement on the TV, said hey give them a call, and they led me to Janet, Janet & Suggs, LLC… they found there was over 11 mistakes made throughout the whole first 19 days of Nathanial's life, and so they went after it… They always kept in touch. They always called. They always made sure that we knew what was going on… A lawsuit is a long, drawn out process. It takes a lot of patience, a lot of time, you know, but it's your child. It's worth it."
"I doubt I would have had the success (and no amount of money will ever make up for what I lost) that I had without the guidance and protection of Richard Serbin. He advised me and did the “heavy lifting” regarding my case. He argued for me and sat with me during the interview that was to establish the worthiness of my compensation.
It was hard for me to deal with all the emotions that came up and I want to say that I am so glad I had Richard do the brunt of the communication and interfacing with the Diocese. I’m glad I had someone who could guide me. All I had to do was tell the truth in my testimony, written and verbal. He did the rest.
The RC Church has many, many good lawyers and lots of financial backing…I wanted someone who could “speak their language” and who would speak for me.
My case had a favorable outcome and I am very happy that I had Richard on my side to help make that happen.
The pain and anguish suffered by every victim that stays silent and by every victim that tries to speak up is without comparison. There is so much unfairness and injustice in the world for a victim/survivor. Loss in self esteem, self respect, courage, life goals, wages, relationships, mental health. There is so much hurt involved at so many levels that it is still – even after 25 years of recovery – overwhelming at times."
“No one can realize the hard work, timeless hours and years devoted to a case where victims lives are changed forever physically and emotionally. Anguished with fear and nightmares, searching for facts from so many people involved. Justin Browne and Team always had time to answer our many questions, and answered our phone calls in a reasonable time, and kept us informed about current news affecting our case. They never put us on the back-burner. We are very pleased with the result! “Settlement”
We will always recommend your law firm, 1st for superior service and excellent results! We will never use anyone else!
We realize that our best interest was always put 1st. You handled us with patience and understanding and good care always!
Your legal team represents true professionals! Your receptionist “Saunoha,” with her warm smile, politeness, and accuracy, is a great asset to your law firm!”
HARRIET AND JERRY C.
"On Thursday night when I got a sort of relief that the lawyers are, at least to a point, where we going to meet. where the judges are going to meet with the lawyers and sign off for a settlement, took it to a level that I can't even explain what kind of level. So it was a victory, yes that the lawyers represented us. But it's a dark place that I can’t really explain in so many words, but I had to look at the faces of everybody around me and see that for the first time, to talk about it, but then to see that I thought I was alone in it so I just left it alone, but for the first time, I see that it’s a whole army working."
VICTIM OF DR. LEVY
"I would like to thank you and your firm for providing exceptional and informative services to me during the past year pertaining to my claim of abuse by a priest who has not faced repercussions for his immoral acts.
One of the key factors in choosing you specifically was your many years of experience helping victims abused by “trusted” priests through the lengthy court processes, while being compassionate and positive. You provided truth that the law was not on the side of the victims, but gave hope that the laws on limitations could and should be changed. You have tirelessly advocated for these changes and continue to give hope. You have gone out of your way to help me and others and I feel you have given all of us a strong voice against these priests and the Catholic Church. I feel you are truly on the side of the victims by your honesty and determination.
Again, thank you for helping me through this ordeal and keeping me informed on what has been happening with the laws and processes for the abused."
"Over the past 50 years I have attempted to bury an unthinkable event that transformed my life.
Then I met Richard Serbin.
I knew instinctively the moment I spoke to Richard that I could share my story with him, which I had I only ever shared with my husband.
Richard Serbin is a Survivor’s Advocate, a highly knowledgeable Attorney, and, more importantly, Richard is a humanitarian. Richard is a compassionate man.
What needs to be understood is the embarrassment I had to share would cause extreme emotions on a grand scale. Yet, Richard’s demeanor and his genuine concern made sharing feel natural.
Richard reminded me from our first conversation that I must remember that “THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT BONNIE.”
With those words I knew that Richard Serbin has the experience to work with survivors. Because that one aspect of self-blame has affected all of the survivors. I needed to hear those words."
"I would like to thank the lawyers. I appreciate them listening to us. I would like to thank the judge for thinking about the 9,000 women, and then some."
VICTIM OF DR. LEVY
“I was injured when an underage drunk driver jumped the curb and hit me while I was walking my dog. I am very thankful a friend referred me to JJS. They went all out on my behalf; they took an appeal and changed the law, which allowed me to bring a claim against the adult who provided the alcohol to the underage driver. This firm is relentless.”
Lisa: "Well I had a teacher friend I worked with that just put in, just picked my brain and little bit and said did you ever think about getting her records? And I said, no, why? She’s like, maybe you should go get her records. When I did get what I thought was a complete set, the woman that gave them to me said I shouldn't tell you this, but these were under lock and key."
Damon: "I was working full time. Lisa was working full time. We didn't have the resources available to go and to track these things down, and the lawyers did. And the attorneys, they were very good and diligent in getting these answers."
LISA AND DAMON VIELE
"My sister, she told me, Donna maybe you should seek, you know, some legal help. And we wasn’t even thinking about lawsuits… Just to find out the truth about what happened, 'cause you do need to know. They have the knowledge and you put your hand, you trust them to take care of you, and that’s what we did. And it’s not so much as I'm gonna get you for doing this, it's we need help with her now that, you know, something was wrong. We need help raising her… By having the settlement, it's helped a lot with Tiara's surgeries, her doctor visits, all the special equipment that she needs… Because of the lawsuit, the community hospital did make changes, and that’s the whole thing, it, you know it, because of things happen to Tiara, you know, other children don't have to go through what she went through."
"I came in contact with Mr. Serbin this past year. As a victim of child sexual abuse, I was looking for closure. Mr. Serbin was highly recommended. I am a suspicious, highly anxious and at times difficult person to work with as a result of my PTSD from the abuse. I never thought I would find somebody I could work with or understand the importance of my case. Before contacting Mr. Serbin, I “checked him out” and was not only impressed with his credentials, but more importantly to me, his humanity. From my research he really seemed to care about his clients.
I found Mr. Serbin to be very professional, intelligent, patient, kind, and supportive. He was more than understanding of my situation and understood the emotions and devastation I felt at times. He was always honest with me, explained everything in detail and told me to call or email at any time and he would soon get back to me, and he did. He gave me hope for closure when I had none in the past.
Mr. Serbin prepared me and calmed my fears when it came time to speak of my trauma. He was prepared in every aspect of my case, able to keep my anxieties in control and everything resolved in a very good outcome. He cares about his clients, does a tremendous amount of research to reach a beneficial solution and is always very gracious. Mr. Serbin cares about his clients and wants them to have justice through the legal system and have the perpetrator pay if at all possible.
I would recommend Mr. Serbin to anyone who wants a lawyer who will work with them not just because of a settlement, but because he understands and wants justice. He and his assistant Maryanne, who has been with him for many years, are a wonderful team. They both are the best at their job, caring, available, and get results. I am very thankful and will always appreciate the work and help they gave me."
