Clergy Abuse Lawyers in Walnut Creek
Millions Won Since 1979 by Our Compassionate Team
Clergy abuse is well documented in the media and in the legal record. In recent years, the Catholic Church in the U.S. has paid out millions in settlements to victims of sexual abuse by priests. However, priests are not alone in taking advantage of children who trust them. Ministers, pastors, rabbis and other religious workers have been charged with sexual assault or other sex abuse crimes by their victims.
The law allows individuals to file lawsuits for damages caused by abusive clergy. Because many of these cases are prosecuted many years after the child molestation occurred, proving liability can be challenging. It is important to have the representation of attorneys with experience in developing this type of child abuse case. Casper, Meadows, Schwartz & Cook has helped victims of clergy abuse recover $20 million.

Proving a Claim of Clergy Abuse
These cases are particularly difficult because children have every reason to trust a clergyperson. When that trust is violated, the victim suffers psychological, emotional and sometimes even physical scars that may never fully heal. We help victims of these hideous crimes secure financial retribution from the offenders. The compensation they receive helps them pay for psychological and medical treatment so they can rebuild their lives.
Our attorneys work with medical and psychological specialists to determine the extent of the damage caused by clergy abuse. We consult with investigators to find witnesses and evidence. We use our years of experience and our determination to obtain justice to build a strong case for our client.
