Priest Sexual Abuse Lawyers Washington DCOur Priest Sexual Abuse Lawyers Washington DC families trust at Cohen & Cohen understand that as a parent, realizing your child may be enduring abuse is a horrific thought. Tragically, incidents of sexual abuse happen and we want parents to know that we take our role very seriously in seeking justice for your son or daughter. If you suspect something just isn’t quite right, then you may want to listen to your gut and get a consultation so you know what your options are.

Abuse by the hands of a priest or church clergy is one of the most traumatizing and dehumanizing experiences a person can be subjected to. Not only does it violate the victim, but it can cause a lifetime of suffering that is difficult to recover from. We can do everything within our legal power to obtain a sense of justice for your children.

Consequences of Priest Sexual Abuse

Children and young aduts that are sexually abused can have lasting injuries that may never entirely heal from. Most abuse victims are ashamed and terrified to come forward out of fear of not being believed. Victims may attempt to hide their pain and don’t seek the help they need. The priests who abuse children are aware of what they are doing and know they may be too afraid to say anything about it. An abuser rarely hurts just one child. So as a victim comes forward, chances are others will too.

The most tragic consequence of priest sexual abuse is mental health struggles. Children tend to feel alone in their experience, have loss of self-esteem, no longer have fun with their hobbies, and may withdraw from loved ones. The justice system is here to punish those who take advantage of others, especially those who are naive and innocent. If your child is exhibiting the following behaviors, we encourage you to consider getting a consultation with our Washington, DC Priest Sexual Abuse Lawyers as soon as possible:

  • Sudden changes in behavior, such as being clingy, aggressive, trouble sleeping, and wetting the bed
  • Avoiding a certain person and seems afraid to be left alone with them
  • Displaying inappropriate sexual behavior, as children who are abused are more likely to engage in ways that are sexually explicit at a young age
  • Problems at school due to difficulty concentrating and learning
  • Dropping hints and clues that sexual abuse may be happening without saying it verbally outright

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.
