Archdiocese of Los Angeles

Los Angeles Cathedral Horowitz Law

Have you been sexually abused by a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles? 

We can help.

If you have been sexually abused by a Catholic priest in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles you may have an opportunity to seek justice and compensation due to a new victim compensation fund created by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.  Horowitz Law is now evaluating legal claims for anyone sexually abused by anyone associated with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Contact us today at (888) 283-9922 or at adam@adamhorowitzlaw.com to learn more.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has established a voluntary compensation fund for survivors of sexual abuse, but you must act soon.

Recently, the Archbishop of Los Angeles, Jose H. Gomez, announced that the Archdiocese of Los Angeles will participate in a confidential, voluntary compensation settlement fund for victims of sexual abuse by clergy in the State of California.  The fund, which is modeled after similar funds in New York and Pennsylvania, will compensate victims in a shorter, more cursory process than full-blown litigation. Respected attorney Kenneth Feinberg, who administered the New York and Pennsylvania claims and other high profile, sensitive claims like the 9/11 Fund, and his business manager, Camille Biros, will review each claim as a neutral third party and award compensation.  We have extensive experience handling claims in the compensation funds and are very familiar with the process and expectations of Mr. Feinberg and Ms. Biros.

There will be a deadline by which all claims must be filed with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, so it is important that you act today to protect your rights under the fund.  Contact us today to discuss your options.

Therefore, it is very important that you contact us today to determine your legal options against the Diocese of Albany and anyone else who has hurt you.  

Through our own investigation, our team has identified a monumental 410 clergy in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles who have been publicly accused of sexually abusing minors.

Truth is power.  Through our own efforts, our lawyers have compiled what we believe is the most comprehensive list of priests, nuns, and brothers accused of sexual abuse of minors who have worked in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, and the list is expected to grow as more survivors come forward to speak their truth.  So far, we have identified a staggering 410 clergy who worked in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles who have been publicly accused of sexually abusing minors. In many cases, the men listed below were merely transferred from parish to parish after allegations arose, and left a long trail of victims across the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
