We can help.

If you have been sexually abused by a priest – or anyone else working in the Diocese of Burlington in Vermont – you now have additional time to seek justice due to the recent passage of a new statute of limitations law that will allow anyone to file a lawsuit against the Diocese of Burlington.  Horowitz Law is now evaluating legal claims for anyone sexually abused by a priest, brother, nun, teacher, coach, or other lay employee of the Diocese of Burlington.

Our lawyers are among the most experienced in the country in cases of clergy sexual abuse – and experience matters when bishops have the toughest lawyers in America working hard to protect their secrets.

Sexual abuse by any member of the clergy is an egregious breach of trust.  Adam Horowitz is 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, the lawyers of Horowitz Law have handled hundreds of clergy sexual abuse cases involving various religious institutions, including Roman Catholic dioceses and religious orders nationwide. These cases have arisen in religious schools, churches/parishes, seminaries, religious counseling, retreats, schools and activities sponsored by religious institutions.

In these cases, the lawyers of Horowitz Law have often prevailed on complex issues involving statutes of limitations, the First Amendment, and the discovery of “confidential” records that the Catholic Church has tried to conceal for nearly a century in some cases.  In fighting these battles, our attorneys have become very familiar with the church’s unique hierarchy, record-keeping policies, terminology, and defense tactics, and are often called upon by colleagues to consult on these matters.

Most importantly, we have become familiar with the unique challenges and needs of survivors of clergy sexual abuse – and their families – during the legal process.  Your safety and well-being are always our first priority.

Through our own investigation, our team has identified 48 clergy in the Diocese of Burlington who have been publicly accused of sexually abusing minors.
