IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING COVID-19

Seeking justice for child sex abuse survivors

New state laws now allow adult victims of child sex abuse to seek justice and compensation. For too long abusers have hidden behind vestments and badges of honor, but no more. We are a leader in child sexual abuse litigation, and we have the in-depth experience and steadfast commitment to see every claim through until justice is done. Find out why Waters Kraus & Paul is the right firm for you.

Child Sex Abuse

States are responding to the uproar over childhood sexual abuse committed by adults in authority in the Catholic Church, Boy Scouts, schools, and other trusted institutions. While some victims came forward in their youth, many were ignored or silenced. Some were even time-barred when reporting abuse later as adults. Still, other victims in their 50s and older suddenly recall repressed childhood sexual abuse. Survivors are finally making the connection between years of psychological distress, alcoholism, bad relationships, and other destructive behaviors stemming from long-forgotten or suppressed abuse.

Waters Kraus & Paul can help surviving victims seek justice and compensation. We collaborate with experienced sex abuse attorneys across the country. Contact is discreet and kept confidential.

If you are an adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse, contact us to speak confidentially with a member of our Childhood Sexual Assault Legal team.

Advocates for Victims of Child Sexual Assault
Waters Kraus & Paul is a long-time advocate for victims of child sexual abuse and assault, annually donating resources to local organizations that investigate, prosecute, and provide healing services.

Our national Childhood Sexual Assault Legal Team offers an enhanced level of victim support and discretion. Coupled with our accomplished and seasoned trial lawyers, we work with experts who know the Catholic Church and are also survivors of abuse by Catholic priests.

Survivors are getting a renewed chance at justice. New state laws are allowing victims to seek legal action and compensation. In New York and New Jersey, even victims who may have been previously time-barred from suing abusers or the institutions they represented now have the opportunity to file a lawsuit. Survivors can bring a claim even if the abuse occurred decades ago, or if a prior lawsuit was filed but dismissed as time-barred.
