Those Who Abuse Their Religious Authority To Hurt Children Should Be Held Accountable

The lawyers at Horowitz Law have been representing survivors of clergy abuse for more than 20 years. In nearly every state across the United States, our lawyers advocate for sexual abuse victims by Roman Catholic priests and other clergy.

Sexual abuse by a member of the clergy is a breach of trust at the highest level. The attorneys at Horowitz Law are among the most experienced attorneys in the country in representing persons sexually abused by priests from the Catholic church and clergy of many other faiths.

Taking On Some Of The World’s Most Powerful Religious Institutions

Since 2000, the attorneys of Horowitz Law have handled thousands of clergy sexual abuse cases involving various religious institutions, including:

  • The Roman Catholic Church
  • The Baptist Church
  • The Episcopal Church
  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons)

These cases have involved incidents in religious schools, churches/parishes, seminaries, religious counseling, retreats, schools, the confessional, and during other activities sponsored by religious institutions.  Our clients include religious school students, altar boys, and parishioners and congregants of all ages.

The Experience To Handle Complex Abuse Cases

Horowitz Law has prevailed on complex issues in clergy abuse cases involving the statute of limitations, the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, and the legal issues surrounding the disclosure of “confidential” records that the Catholic Church has tried to conceal for decades. In fighting these battles, Adam Horowitz and his team have become familiar with the church’s unique hierarchy, record-keeping policies, terminology, and defense tactics. Most importantly, we have become familiar with the unique pain experienced by survivors of clergy sexual abuse, and the effects that it has on their faith, their relationships with family members, and their mental health.
