The Diocese of Rockville Centre is creating a compensation program for survivors of child sex abuse by priests in their diocese. This program comes on the heels of similar programs established in the Archdiocese of New York and the Diocese of Brooklyn, both of which provide a confidential settlement process for qualifying survivors.
We are Lawyers Helping Survivors of Child Sex Abuse, a national team of attorneys dedicated to representing victims of sexual abuse. We help victims recover compensation they can use to help rebuild their lives. Through these efforts, our broader goal is to change the broken systems that allowed abuse to take place in the first place and prevent perpetrators from causing more harm.
Our team is composed of attorneys from Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. — an almost 500-person law firm with three decades of experience — as well as Noaker Law Firm LLC, and James, Vernon & Weeks, P.A., firms that have years of experience working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Together, we have the resources necessary to confront large, well-financed organizations and get results.
