Our goal is to achieve the largest settlement possible for you and help you with your road to healing. Money does not erase harm or make you whole again. However, settlement money can help you pay bills, get necessary treatment, and provide future financial security for your family and loved ones. Making a claim holds the church accountable and may help prevent this from happening to someone else.
We offer free, confidential, no obligation consultations. There are no legal fees or costs to you unless you receive money at the end of the case. You have nothing to lose. Making the call is sometimes the hardest step, but it is often a necessary step on the road to healing and justice.

The Pennsylvania Diocese Victims Report (often referred to as the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report) "serves as the holding ground for the results of a two-year grand jury investigation into widespread sexual abuse of children within six dioceses of the Catholic Church in Pennsylvania and the systemic cover up by senior church officials in Pennsylvania and at The Vatican." It began in 2016 and investigated sexual abuse in the Dioceses of Allentown, Scranton, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, Greensburg and Erie. A total of 301 priests were accused of sexually abusing children.
