We've Helped Victims of Clergy Sexual Abuse

Clergy Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Many people look to the clergy as spiritual leaders. We put our trust in them to help us understand faith and live our best lives.

Unfortunately, there have been countless violations of this trust by members of the clergy. Many of these violations came in the form of sexual abuse. Compounding the issue, the Catholic Church has a long history of protecting clergy it knows to be sexually abusing parishioners. Clergy sexual abuse is particularly egregious, and the abusers and the people who protect them need to be held accountable.

The Catholic Church has long since gained a reputation for protecting child-molesting priests from prosecution. For decades, advocates criticized the Church for not doing enough to protect young parishioners from abuse. The issue has reached a breaking point as states all around the country investigate dioceses and their clergy members for allegations of sexual abuse.

Fifteen different dioceses across Texas have released lists of clergy members who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing minors, which we have provided at the bottom of this page. It is not enough for the Church to release the names of priests accused of child sexual abuse. Victims deserve justice.

Clergy Sexual Assault Victims Can Get Help

While law enforcement can sometimes criminally pursue clergy for sexual abuse, victims can also seek their own justice through a civil lawsuit. Coming forward can be incredibly difficult for sexual abuse victims. However, doing so can give them a voice and help them regain control of their lives. While no amount of money can undo the trauma that has been done, it can help relieve financial pressures. Compensation can pay for the cost of ongoing mental health treatment.

Feldman & Feldman Has Helped Clergy Sexual Assault Victims In The Past

The clergy sexual abuse lawyers at Feldman & Feldman believe no one pursuing their faith should have to endure sexual abuse from their religious leaders. We fight aggressively for victims of clergy sexual abuse because they deserve justice. In the past, we have represented clergy sexual abuse victims against churches including the Second Baptist Church and the Community of Faith Church.

Feldman & Feldman is appalled at the number of priests who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing children, and we are ready to help victims and their families. We offer free consultations, and we only work on a contingency fee basis. You won’t owe us anything unless we help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
