Catholic Church & Other Religious Organizations

The lawyers at Horowitz Law have been representing survivors of clergy abuse for more than twenty years. In cases across the United States and in almost every state, our lawyers advocate for sexual abuse victims by priests and other clergy.

Sexual abuse by a member of the clergy is a breach of trust at the highest level.   Adam Horowitz and the other attorneys at Horowitz Law are among the most experienced attorneys in the country in representing persons sexually abused by priests from the Catholic church and clergy of many other faiths.  Since 2000, Horowitz Law has handled hundreds of clergy sexual abuse cases involving various religious institutions, including the Roman Catholic Church, the Baptist Church, the Episcopal Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons), and Judaism.  These cases have involved incidents in religious schools, churches/parishes, seminaries, religious counseling, retreats, schools, the confessional, and during other activities sponsored by religious institutions.  Our clients include religious school students, altar boys, and parishioners and congregants of all ages.

Horowitz Law has prevailed on complex issues in clergy abuse cases involving statute of limitations, the First Amendment, and discovery of “confidential” records that the Catholic Church tried to conceal for decades.  In fighting these battles, Adam Horowitz became familiar with the church’s unique hierarchy, record-keeping policies, terminology, and defense tactics.  Most importantly, we have become familiar with the unique pain experienced by survivors of clergy sexual abuse.

In addition our work on clergy abuse cases in Florida, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and California, we are currently handling sexual abuse cases involving priests and other clergy in the following Catholic Dioceses:
