Clergy Sexual Abuse Victim
Have you or some one you know been a victim of sexual abuse from a member of the Clergy? Sexual abuse occurs in numerous forms and affects many types of victims. Sexual abuse can come in the form of one exposing one’s self, the performance of lewd acts, or even the showing of pornography. As a result, clergy sex abuse claims are extremely varied; parents may bring a claim on behalf of a child, or adults may file a claim relating to sexual abuse endured during childhood. No matter the details, clergy sexual abuse claims are extremely sensitive in nature and require the attention of experienced attorneys.
Even if the abuse happened many years ago, it may not be too late to file a claim. In many circumstances a claim can still be made against the church.

At the Boston Law Offices of Altman & Altman, LLP., our experienced lawyers understand that sexual abuse is always a devastating crime as it may have lasting effects on a child that will continue into adulthood, such as alcoholism, drug addiction, depression, anxiety and other mental issues. Sexual abuse is especially appalling when it comes from a member of the clergy. Recently, more and more people have come forward to report the abuse they have suffered from the hands of the clergy. In many cases, the church leadership knew that their clergy members had a history of sexually abusing children and made the conscious decision to cover up these incidents by dismissing the allegations altogether or even worse by moving the members to less affluent communities where they were allowed to continue their horrible crimes on children.
