Fighting For Victims Of Church Sexual Abuse
Some of the most well-publicized and disturbing acts of sexual assault have occurred within the Catholic Church and other religious organizations, where a trusted priest, pastor or clergy member has sexually assaulted one or more children.
We will not stand for this betrayal by the very adults who should be looking out for young people. We take every allegation of sexual assault by someone in the church seriously and pursue these cases aggressively to seek justice for the survivors and their families. Attorney Eugene K. Hollander and his team have taken on the Archdiocese of Chicago on multiple occasions and won, generating millions of dollars in relief and a measure of justice for the individuals harmed by priests and other clergy.
Sadly, when child sexual abuse allegations arise against the Catholic Church or another religious institution, all-too-often there is more than one survivor. We will list ongoing cases here in case other victims choose to come forward about suffering sexual assault in the church and wish to pursue justice and compensation.
It is worth noting that as of 2019, Illinois does not have a statute of limitations on sex abuse claims, regardless of the age of the victim. There is no time limit for coming forward.
