Clergy Sex Abuse

New York Clergy Sexual Abuse

Civil Attorneys Representing Victims of Child Sexual Abuse

  • Abuse by clergy is not just a Catholic problem. Clergy sexual abuse is not to be tolerated. Eisenberg and Baum understands the need for closure after a sexual molestation case and will work tirelessly to protect your interests.
  • Unfortunately, as we’ve all come to learn, sexual abuse by members of the clergy happens all too often. Safe within a religious organization, the sexual predator is given the means, opportunity, and an implied sense of trust to “groom” a child. This violation of confidence is particularly harmful to the young victim.
  • Parents, caregivers, and even the religious organization itself regularly teaches young congregation members to admire, respect, and trust Church leaders and the clergy. Often, children are under the direct care and supervision of ministers or priests, and it’s within this framework abuse takes place. These silent victims and their families are unaware of the risks involved, often encouraging their young children to participate in church events, or become altar boys.
  • All too often the case, complaints of abuse will cause the religious organization to relocate the minister to another community, thereby hiding any past accusations of wrongdoing.
