– Anyone who’s suffered abuse by a priest or other member of the
clergy, obviously has concerns with regards to the way their
case is gonna be handled. We understand one, the
strength that it takes for a survivor to come forward at all. But specifically understand
how to litigate cases against the archdiocese
and against the church. We’ve a history of representing
survivors of priest abuse against the archdiocese here
and have been successful in doing so. Some of our successes in
that regard have been priests where there have either been a decision not to press charges against criminally, or there having criminal charges pressed that have resulted in no conviction. We’ve been successful in making sure that that priest and the
archdiocese in the church is held responsible at the end of the day. We have intimate knowledge with regards to legality of these cases
such as certain immunities that the church may bring up to try to get out of
accepting responsibility for abuse to somebody. Including religious immunity
and things that are asserted in these types of cases. But I think specifically
what we offer most to survivors of clergy and priest abuse is an understanding. We know how to, to work with survivors. I’ve been a former prosecutor
handing these types of cases and now I’m dedicating my
life to handing these cases from a civil aspect. We know how important it is to tell the story of, of the survivor through our litigation and that’s what we try to do. (Soft percussion music)
