$475,000 Sexual Abuse Settlement
Sexual Molestation By An Archdiocese Priest
So much trust is placed in those people that help guide us through life. Whether they are coaches, teachers or clergy, we often blindly assume that these people are always looking out for our best interests. But unfortunately, this is not always true. In this case, we were contacted by a man who had been molested and sexually abused over a long period of time by a priest in the employ of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Even though this abuse occurred well over 10 years ago, we were still able to help this man. Through extensive negotiations, a fair and just settlement in the amount of $475,000 was reached to help our client in his ongoing recovery and to avoid the necessity of testifying about this dark chapter in his life at trial.
