Attorney Mark A. Brown overcame statute of limitations issues to help a 50-year-old man recover a fair and confidential settlement against the Chicago Archdiocese for the sexual abuse he experienced as a child.
The victim, who grew up on the southwest side of Chicago, came to our firm alleging that one specific teacher who was employed by the Archdiocese of Chicago had abused him approximately four decades earlier.
When we met him, he was still suffering. The course of his life had been changed by the traumatic abuse he had suffered as a child. The teacher, who first gave him an uneventful ride in his sports car, later abused him on several different occasions in the same vehicle. Our client was withdrawn and had ongoing mental health issues in the weeks, years, and decades following the abuse.
Our client overcame many personal challenges throughout the legal process, but he can now focus on recovering from the abuse that he experienced so long ago and that had such a profound effect on his life.
Sexually abusing a young person is inexcusable. And while you can’t change what has happened, you can hold a sexual predator accountable for his crimes.
