Attorney James S. Rogers was quoted in a recent Seattle Times article in which staff reporter Lewis Kamb reports that of the 77 Catholic clergy members named by the Seattle Archdiocese as likely abusers of children; only five have been charged.
The Law Offices of James S. Rogers have been seeking justice for the victims of clergy childhood sexual abuse for over two decades, and while the firm’s victories are many, the vast discrepancy in these numbers make it clear there is much work to be done. It is of utmost importance that victims of abuse come forward. The Seattle Times has a searchable list of likely offenders on its webpage. If you or someone you know is a victim, please contact our offices and share your experience with a team that brings a proven track record of success in cases of institutional abuse. Each person’s case is unique as to those circumstances, and we are available to provide advice and counseling.
