In light of recent revelations by watchdog groups, a concerning veil of secrecy within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cleveland has been brought to public attention. These groups have accused the diocese of a lack of transparency regarding clergy sexual abuse claims, demanding the addition of 50 clergymen to the diocese’s list of those with substantiated allegations.

At Lowe Scott Fisher, we stand with survivors of childhood sexual assault, advocating for their right to justice and healing. The courage to come forward and the pursuit of accountability is a pivotal step in the healing process. We understand the complexities and sensitivities involved in these cases and offer a compassionate, confidential environment for survivors to share their stories.

We urge anyone who has suffered abuse at the hands of a clergy member to reach out. You are not alone, and your voice deserves to be heard. It is important to note that survivors have 12 years from the date they turn 18 to bring a claim involving childhood sexual assault. This time frame is crucial for taking legal action and we are here to guide you every step of the way.

For a free case evaluation and to learn more about your rights and options, contact us at 216-781-2600 or email us at [email protected]. Together, we can seek the justice and closure you deserve. You can also submit your information through our website contact form found here.
