Furthermore, by holding the abuser accountable publicly, it can help prevent further incidents of sexual abuse happening within the walls of the church.

The Devastating Impacts of Sexual Abuse

Sexual molestation of children or young adults by members of the clergy is one of the most harmful acts someone can inflict on another. Religious leaders are supposed to be trusted members of your community, and people that you look up to for guidance in your life. The impacts of sexual abuse are devastating, and victims may b entitled to substantial damages for how they were impacted physically, emotionally, and mentally. Here are just a few signs that your child may have been the victim of abuse at the hands of a priest or other religious individual:

  • They are spending more time with this person alone without parents
  • They are exhibiting behaviors that are unlike them, such as personality changes, anger, irritability, depression, or mood swings
  • They are withdrawing from friends and family and don’t participate in social activities

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
