California Clergy Abuse Lawyers
Have You Been Sexually Abused by a Person Working in a Religious Institution?
Organized religion is considered one of the world’s most sacred institutions, resulting in the respect and trust of millions of people in search of spiritual guidance and community. Unfortunately, allegations of sexual abuse in houses of worship have been a consistent, disturbing occurrence. The children who were abused by clergymen now struggle with mental anguish and emotional scars for the rest of their lives. The damage inflicted by these abusive clergymen to thousands of young lives is devastating.
The following are common types of religious workers named in civil lawsuits:
- Church staff
- Other religious workers

Not only can our California personal injury attorneys help you send a message that this abuse can and will not be tolerated, but also help you recover financial compensation for your injuries.
Seek Legal Remedy with Our Firm
Child members of the congregation admire the clergy and other religious leaders. Children are often taught to respect and trust their adult members of the church, especially priests, ministers, teachers, and other clergymen. In many cases, the kids are under the constant care and supervision of such religious members, making them vulnerable to be “groomed” for abuse by sexual predators.
Despite the traumatic damage done by these heinous individuals, the legal system provides an opportunity to confront the perpetrator and finally punish the person who abused you when you were young and powerless. Our California personal injury lawyers can help you sue for the emotional and financial damages caused by the abuse, such as lost earnings and money spent on therapy. Furthermore, we want to protect other children from the same abuser.
