Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Priest Sexual Assault Lawyers MD

Priest Sexual Assault Lawyers MDAt Cohen & Cohen, our Priest Sexual Assault Lawyers MD families trust are ready and prepared to represent your case. When a place of religion is worshipped, parishoners reasonably assume that it is a safe environment for them and their family. Unfortunately, incidents of sexual misconduct between church members and religious leaders happen all too often. And tragically, the victims may be left with emotional and physical injuries that they will have to manage for the rest of their lives.

If you or someone you love is the victim of priest sexual abuse, please know that you deserve financial compensation for what happened. And while we cannot undo the abusive events, we can advocate for your behalf so you can obtain a sense of justice and healing in the matter.

Signs of Sexual Abuse in Children

If you have a young child and aren’t sure whether sexual assault is happening to them, you may not be sure what to do next. Ultimately, the decision to file a case against an individual and/or religious entity is up to you. What we can do is assess evidence and the situation at hand, and advise you on how to proceed. Remember that signs of child sexual abuse often aren’t obvious, and it may take some serious investigation to figure out. But, there are some common physical and behavioral signs that may mean sexual abuse is happening to your child:

  • Bruising or bleeding near the genital area
  • Urinating frequently, with or without associated pain (may be a sign of urinary infection or STI)
  • A change in how your child stands, sits, or walks
  • Expressed pain or itchy in the genital area
  • Personality changes that happened suddenly
  • Fears of being touched
  • Bathing in excess or not at all
  • Grades dropping when they normally perform well in school
  • Behaviors of self-harm or talking about suicide
  • Wetting the bed
  • Being overly sexual or making sexual comments that are inappropriate

Your Legal Options

Filing a lawsuit against the religious entity that enabled the abuser to harm others can send a message that lies and attempts to cover up incidents will result in financial repercussions. Survivors that come forward are brave and not only achieve justice for themselves but help reveal the extent of these horrific offenses. If you are considering your options or want help filing a lawsuit right away, call our Priest Sexual Assault Lawyers in Maryland today for immediate assistance.

If you, your child, or loved one was the victim of sexual abuse at the hands of a church leader, you may want to know your legal options. Many survivors of these incidents are afraid to come forward and share their story. They may fear they aren’t believed, or they may feel so overwhelmed with coming to terms with what occurred that they question whether it really happened at all. For many, seeking support from a therapist and lawyer can give them the strength and information they need to decide if filing a lawsuit is best for them.

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.
