Chicago Sexual Abuse Lawyers

Where sexual abuse is involved, too often large institutions such as the church and the Boy Scouts have chosen to protect their reputations at the expense of innocent children. Victims of child sexual abuse often suffer for a lifetime, blaming themselves for the criminal behavior of another. Many victims are unaware that the organizations they trusted knew about the abuser, did nothing to stop him and in some cases covered it up.

Read the Archdiocese of Chicago Secret Files. The Archdiocese of Chicago has released “documents relating to the sexual misconduct of thirty priests of the Archdiocese.” We have made them available for you to read. Click here to read the files on each priest.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of sexual abuse, you may be entitled to compensation.

HM&M has the experience and resources necessary to get justice from the large and powerful institutions that too often failed to prevent or stop the abuse. Even if the abuse took place years ago, the law can permit you to seek damages from those institutions.

HM&M pursues cases against all sexual abuse. Contact us today for assistance with all types of malpractice cases.
