Boston Clergy Abuse Lawyers

Few cases are more devastating than those involving clergy abuse. Members of the clergy, such as priests, pastors, rabbis and imams, hold powerful positions of spiritual authority. Their parishioners and followers trust in them for guidance on foundational spiritual and life issues. When a clergy member violates that trust, the victim often suffers lifelong ramifications ranging from damaged self-esteem to loss of faith to a lasting inability to sustain normal, trusting relationships.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of clergy abuse, you may feel reluctant to come forward. You may feel ashamed or afraid. You may feel like everyone has betrayed you and you will never be able to trust others again. However, you are not alone.

Dedicated Legal Advocates Who Understand Your Situation

At The Law Offices of SJ Spero & Associates, we understand what you are going through. Our attorneys have dedicated their careers to helping abuse victims obtain justice and closure. Over the course of more than three decades, we have represented hundreds of clergy abuse victims — both children and adults — across the country.

Based in Boston, our lawyers handle clergy abuse cases nationwide. We protect victims' rights in cases involving all types of clergy abuse, including:

  • Sexual abuse of children and adults
  • Financial exploitation
  • Sexual exploitation of a child
  • Negligent hiring and retention of clergy
  • Fraudulent or negligent concealment
  • Failure to adequately supervise clergy

Dedicated To Seeking Justice And Preventing Further Abuse

We understand that justice in these cases is about far more than just obtaining financial compensation for your suffering. It is also about holding the abuser and the church or faith organization accountable as well as getting a predator off the street so that no other potential victims will have to suffer.

Our attorneys understand how to achieve these objectives. We know how to bring to light the negligence of the church in its failure to detect and prevent such abuse. We are experienced in employing effective strategies to ensure that the abuse is not simply covered up and the abuser transferred to another parish or location. We work diligently to meet our clients' individual needs and goals.
