Were you sexually abused as a child in the Archdiocese of Baltimore?  We can help.

If you have been sexually abused by a priest – or anyone else working in the Archdiocese of Baltimore in Maryland – you may have a limited time to seek justice due to the expected passage of a new law suspending the statute of limitations in child sexual abuse cases in Maryland temporarily.  Horowitz Law is now evaluating legal claims for anyone sexually abused by a priest, brother, nun, teacher, coach, or other lay employees of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Contact us at 844-598-2376 or [email protected] to learn more.

Maryland lawmakers are expected to pass a new law that opens the courthouse doors to sex abuse survivors seeking justice and accountability for the lifetime of hurt and shame caused by their abuse.

When the new law is passed, the courthouse doors will open to everyone sexually abused as a child regardless of when their abuse occurred, but only for a short time.  For many people born before 1981, their statute of limitations previously expired at the expiration of their 21st birthday.

The new statute of limitations “window” will allow anyone sexually abused as a child in Maryland to file lawsuits against their perpetrators and the institutions that protected and enabled the abusers, even if the statute of limitations had previously run out. Once the window has expired, many clergy sexual abuse claims will be forever barred. Therefore, it is very important that you contact us today to determine your legal options against the Archdiocese of Baltimore and anyone else who has hurt you.

Our lawyers are among the most experienced in the country in cases of clergy sexual abuse – and experience matters when church leaders have some of the toughest lawyers in America working to keep their secrets.

Sexual abuse by any member of the clergy is an egregious breach of trust. Adam Horowitz is 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.  Since 2000, the lawyers of Horowitz Law have handled hundreds of clergy sexual abuse cases involving various religious institutions, including the Archdiocese of Baltimore. These cases have arisen in religious schools, churches/parishes, seminaries, religious counseling, retreats, schools, and other activities sponsored by religious institutions.

In these cases, the lawyers of Horowitz Law have often prevailed on complex issues involving statutes of limitations, the First Amendment, and the discovery of “confidential” records that the Catholic Church has tried to conceal for nearly a century in some cases. In fighting these battles, our attorneys have become very familiar with the church’s unique hierarchy, record-keeping policies, terminology, and defense tactics and are often called upon by colleagues to consult on these matters.

Most importantly, we have become familiar with the unique challenges and needs of survivors of clergy sexual abuse – and their families – during the legal process.  Your safety and well-being are always our first priority.

Through our own investigation, we have identified 201 clergies in the Archdiocese of Baltimore who have been accused of sexual abuse and misconduct.

Truth is power.  Through our own efforts, our lawyers have compiled what we believe is the most comprehensive list of priests and other clergies who have worked in the Archdiocese of Baltimore, and the list is expected to grow as more survivors come forward to speak their truth.  So far, we have identified a staggering 157 clergy and employees publicly accused of sexual abuse and sexual misconduct. In many cases, the people listed below were merely transferred from parish to parish after allegations arose and left a long trail of victims across the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

Horowitz Law is a law firm representing victims of sexual abuse in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Our lawyers are now offering free legal consultations to discuss a potential lawsuit and your other options as a survivor of sexual abuse by priests and other employees of the Baltimore Archdiocese.  Your chance to pursue legal action may soon be over.  Most victims of abuse will never be able to recover damages if they miss the temporary window to file a lawsuit, so please contact us to discuss your case today.
