Victim of Church Sexual Abuse

Our firm had the privilege of representing a young woman who was groomed and abused by her church’s youth pastor when she was a minor.  The abuse began after she took a leadership role in the church youth group.  Church leadership knew about the abuse and failed to protect our client.  The church fought us vigorously, including filing a motion to dismiss the case.  Due to extensive investigation, we were able to prove the church was responsible for failing to protect the client and secured a large settlement for her.
