Court Orders Clergy Sexual Abuse Records Made Public

On July 27th, 2018, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered that Report I of the 40th Statewide Investigating Grand Jury be released to the public. Contained within Report I of the 40th Statewide Investigating Grand Jury — the full report can be read here: https://www.attorneygeneral.gov/report/ — are details of decades of horrendous sexual abuse committed by members of the clergy and cover-ups of the abuse committed by diocesan leadership. The Grand Jury heard testimony from dozens of witnesses and reviewed over half-a-million pages of documents before finding that more than 1,000 children — at a minimum — were sexually abused by more than 300 perpetrators.

Survivors of sexual abuse committed in these institutions may finally find relief in the near future as the Pennsylvania legislature is considering legislation that will allow civil lawsuits previously barred by the passage of time to be brought against sexual predators. Survivors are currently preparing for this new legislation and White Law PLLC is prepared to help hold abusers accountable today.

Noneconomic damages that might be pursuable in a clergy sexual abuse case include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lessened enjoyment of life
  • Continuing trauma
  • Cost of therapy needed due to abuse

Real Testimonials
From Previous Clients

  • Thank you White Law for what you did!

    “People v. A.D. (2014) - "My son was facing his third gun charge. His first lawyer died on Christmas Day. Jamie White took over the case when it was already in a late phase of the case. My son was serving a year from a prior gun charge and Mr. White had almost all of the charges thrown out. My son was sentenced to nine months with time served, nothing except a mark on his record. Mr. White got him from being in jail with a third gun charge looking at 10 to 15 years with habitual to a plea to a gun charge with time served for nine months. Thank you White Law for what you did!"”

  • I am indebted to Mr. White and White Law for the rest of my life. They are like family to me.

    “People v. F.T. (2009) - "When my case started, it looked like my life was over with. I didn’t know what to do. I was charged with first degree criminal sexual assault and six counts of rape; I was facing prison for the rest of my life. I went to jail, my children were taken from me… I didn’t know what to do. ​ A friend of mine recommended White Law PLLC and attorney James White. They jumped right into my case and my situation. Mr. White opened my eyes and shined the light on my case; they did everything in their power to help me. They hired a private investigator and expert witnesses. The last week of my trial, I was in the office almost every day; I know that Mr. White put his heart and soul into my trial, and that he believed in me. ​ When my trial began, everyone that I saw would look at me funny, like I was a bad person. By the time the witnesses had finished testifying at trial, everyone was using those bad looks for my accusers. I was found not guilty and cleared of all charges. ​ God helped me through White Law PLLC, and I am indebted to Mr. White and White Law for the rest of my life. They are like family to me. If you’re in trouble and you think your life is over, call White Law. They gave me my wife, my family, and my life back."”

  • The outcome of my case was the one I was looking for and I highly recommend this firm!

    “I am from Chicago Illinois and Jamie didn’t hesitate to take my case. He got it done and over with in a very timely manner and with out me having to make multiple trips to and from Michigan. The outcome of my case was the one I was looking for and I highly recommend this firm!”

  • Attorney Jamie White and his legal team are amazing.

    “Attorney Jamie White and his legal team are amazing. Although my situation did not end up in actual court, this team was well prepared in the event that it did. I was notified and in the loop on every step that was happening and it was very comforting to know that this team was well prepared to handle my situation. If I ever need legal counsel again, or know of anyone who does, White Law PLLC is my first choice.”

  • Great team of lawyers

    “Great team of lawyers here who are well connected with prosecutors in the area that look out for their client's best interests. They also provide alternative pricing for those who can't afford the top lawyers in the firm (and the top lawyers still work with the associates despite the lower price), so yeah great law firm.”
