Attorney Paul Mones helps victims of sexual abuse by a Catholic priest, deacons and nuns bring their abusers to justice and seek the compensation they need to heal. Paul Mones is an experienced and respected sexual abuse attorney and he is ready to help you if you are a victim of sexual abuse in the Catholic church.
Sexual abuse by leaders and priests of the Catholic Church has gone on for decades. It is vile, it is disgusting, and it is time for it to stop. Paul Mones helps victims get the justice they deserve.
Abuse in the Catholic Church Is Widespread
Sexual abuse is reprehensible. It goes against all of the Catholic church’s teachings. And yet, sexual abuse in the Catholic church was and is widespread. Too often, abuse was or is swept under the rug; a problem that the church hierarchy rationalized that could be ignored.
How We Will Help You with Your Case
Our firm has seen first hand the good that can come from one brave soul stepping forward and telling his or her story.
Our clients are always in control of their own case. We are there to guide them, and help them use the law to their advantage no matter what sort of path towards healing they intend to take. Our main goal is to help you seek the justice you so rightly deserve
You Are Not Alone
One of the most heart-breaking things we hear from our clients is that they thought they were alone. Until they saw a story on the news about others who were abused by their priests, or something in their mind clicked, they thought they were the only one who went through what they did. Some spend years thinking they did something wrong instead of blaming the predator that hurt them, and the church that failed them.
We are here to say you are not alone, and you are not the one at fault. We are here to stand with you. We are here to spread the word that victims are not to blame. The Catholic church and the abusers it sheltered them are the villains in this story.
Whether you were abused recently, or decades ago, it is time to hold those who are responsible accountable — both abusers and the church. Every victim deserves the opportunity to have their story heard so they can begin to heal.
The Just Compensation You Deserve
Seeking just compensation for the abuse that you endured can help you move on in ways you never anticipated. It can also send a message to other victims that they are not alone. The Catholic church must be held accountable for abuse at the hands of its staff and volunteers, and abuse that occurs at its facilities.
Paul Mones has over 30 years of experience representing victims of sexual abuse. He has helped many of them seek compensation and expose the hypocrisy at the heart of organizations that are supposed to be dedicated to the greater good.
In 2010, he and his co-counsel won the largest verdict ever — $19.9 million — against the Boy Scouts of America, and spearheaded the subsequent release of documents that disclosed just how much the BSA knew about the abusers it supported or employed.
Paul Mones has also represented numerous victims of Catholic clergy abuse throughout the nation. In 2000, he and his co-counsel tried the first sexual abuse case to a jury against the Archdiocese of New York. In 2007, he and his co-counsel obtained an $11.45 million jury verdict against the Diocese of Rockville Centre in New York on behalf of two victims — the largest verdict rendered to date against a Diocese in New York.
Paul Mones and his team are ready to help you seek the just compensation you deserve.
Experience You Can Trust
Losing the ability to trust because you have suffered abuse at the hands of someone you once respected or admired shakes you to your core. Even years later, it can be difficult to connect with others because you can never forget how you were once so viciously betrayed.
Decades of working on behalf of victims of sexual abuse has helped Attorney Paul Mones and his team develop a keen understanding of the emotional and psychological obstacles faced by those who seek to hold their abusers accountable. Attorney Mones and the rest of the team work hard to be the sort of people that you can rely on and gradually learn to trust even if trusting others is hard for you.
