California Clergy Abuse Attorney

California clergy abuseSexual abuse by clergy members has received a lot of media attention recently and rightly so. In many cases, the abuse has continued for decades and profoundly and negatively affected the lives of thousands of children. It is unconscionable that members of the clergy use the inherent trust and respect of their positions in their community to leverage silence from their victims. They also use their position as clergy to discredit the few victims who come forward and attempt to speak out about their abuse.

The reputable Los Angeles clergy abuse attorneys at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas have the experience, passion and resources to help abused victims recover the full compensation that they are entitled to under the law against the responsible parties. We fight to make sure innocent victims are compensated for the abusive acts of sexual clergy offenders.

Abuse At the Hands of the Clergy

The clergy and other church leaders are most often well admired and revered by the young members of their congregations. Most often, these younger congregants are under the constant care and supervision of the priests and ministers. Sadly, it is under this framework that many young children are “groomed” for abuse.

In most cases, families are either unaware or choose not to believe the risks their children may face. Families, welcome members of the clergy into their home, unknowing that this may very well be the same person who is abusing their children.

In most cases, when victims or their family members come forth with a complaint of sexual abuse about the clergy member, the response is to merely relocate that clergy to another community. Unfortunately, the members of the new congregation are never notified about the clergy’s past accusations.

The Legal Remedy to Devastating Clergy Abuse

Clergy abuse is a particularly difficult category of sexual abuse because children are taught at a young age to respect and trust their priests, ministers and other members of the clergy. It is with much difficulty that these fragile victims identify the abuse and come forth to seek help and assistance.

The sympathetic and passionate legal team at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas understands the pain and emotional toll caused by clergy abuse. We are sensitive in the way we approach these delicate matters. We take the time to get to know our clients and will take every step possible to ensure that we hold every party responsible for the pain and sorrow caused by their horrible actions.

From the start of my untimely and horrific fall at the most unsafe flight of stairs. Which was in a privately owned complex, where by the way, the owners truly believed they were, as they say, “above the the law”. The MOST WISE DECISION I MADE WAS TO CONTACT THE HABBAS LAW FIRM! This firm from the initial meeting (they came to me!!) Photos were taken of all aspects of this poorly kept complex and a promise I shall never forget! They promised to take great care of me with medical professionals, fully inform me of all the correspondence with the opposing party/insurance company. Most of all have me compensated for the pain and misery the on site owners daughter put me and my daughter through! True to their word, SAM HABBAS AND ASSOCIATES LAW FIRM DID JUST THAT! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FIRM TO ANY AND ALL PERSONS WHO NEED A TRUSTWORTHY PROFESSIONAL LEGAL TEAM!!! From the initial meet and consultation, the scheduling of medical appointments, the medical professionals, the wonderful receptionists at HABBAS LAW FIRM, my paralegal SUMMER, and of course my team of THE BEST OF THE BEST LAWYERS! 5💫 rating! By the way, settlement negotiations came and in a matter of minutes HABBAS LAW FIRM upped and secured a handsome settlement. Thank you 🙏 to all the most amazing team whom I shall always recommend, and appreciate! P.s This poorly managed complex was forced to make all repairs and changes to meet safety code!👍🏼Amanda Inland Empireread more

I was in a terrible wreck back in October. I had multiple broken bones and a severe concussion. I started searching for lawyers immediately and after interviewing 5 different lawyers. I felt Samer was going to do the best to represent me and he did. Samer, Mike, and Jazmine went above and beyond to make sure everything was in order from dealing with insurance companies to getting the medical treatment I needed. They answer their phones and if they do miss your call they actually call you back in a timely manner. They made sure I was taken care of, the service they provide to their clients is unrivaled. I hope nothing like this ever happens to me again but if it does Samer and Mike have earned my business for life. They are hands down the best personal injury attorneys ever. I highly encourage anyone who has been in accident to go with Samer and Mike if your hurt or injured there is no firm better than this one. Thanks again Samer I appreciate all the work and help you and your team have done so i can get through this! :)read more
