OR- Lawyer for abuse victims passes away
For immediate release: Tuesday, Dec. 17 2013
Kelly Clark was among the most compassionate men I've ever met and one of the most effective advocates for abuse victims. Kelly always saw the big picture and put the needs of his clients - both short term and long term - ahead of every other consideration.
He was passionately committed to using civil litigation to protect kids, prevent crimes, deter cover ups and expose those who commit and conceal heinous child sexual abuse.
He could have taken more cases and won more money, if not for his dedication to revealing the truth about powerful individuals and institutions that hurt or endangered kids.
Many clergy sex abuse victims and advocates across the country were inspired by his courage and his compassion. Ours is a safer society for kids these days because of Kelly's giant heart and ground-breaking work.
