The recent horrific exposure of widespread abuse of children in Pennsylvania brings many survivors forward to take action. An attorney can best advocate for you and represent your interests.
A couple points to remember:
~Most attorneys will take cases on contingency, where they get a percentage of any award or settlement you receive.
~The process may take a couple of months stretching to a year or more.
~The process can be difficult. Opposing attorneys can be aggressive and harsh.
50 State AG Call for Grand Jury
Any investigation must be:
- independent of and separate from the church
- must have subpoena powers and ability to compel testimony under oath
Anything short of these criteria is a sham and whitewash.
In addition, write letters to the editor, make phone calls to politicians as they can apply pressure to keep them responsive to our demand. We need to make efforts to ensure that they follow up on what the state is doing to investigate these crimes.
The Attorneys General of forty states have inquired about the grand jury process in Pennsylvania. Let's get statewide investigations going in fifty states.
Note to Letter Writers
Use your own words and style of writing. Cut and paste from the templates as you wish. Include your experiences, whether as a survivor or as a member of the community. And relate your letter to the state you were abused in or state now living in.
