Your Expert Lawyer For Church or Religious Institution Abuse

Churches and other religious institutions are a place of refuge and worship for many Australians across the course of their lives and have helped with the care and welfare of children. Sadly, abuse occurs all too often in churches and church-run institutions, often by trusted members of the church or those in positions of power and responsibility. Church abuse lawyers can ensure that anyone who has experienced abuse in these religious institutions can share their stories safely and seek justice and compensation.

Abuse can be highly traumatic for anyone but especially in children, leading to long-term mental health issues. The Royal Commission’s inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse found that many churches and church-run institutions failed to protect children from sexual abuse.

If you or someone you love has been affected by abuse in church, contact a church abuse lawyer to learn more about how you can fight for justice. We believe that it’s important to hear all survivor’s stories while at the same time protecting their privacy and confidentiality. Our experienced church abuse lawyers will treat your case with the respect and discretion it deserves, and will fight to achieve you compensation.

How Can A Church Abuse Lawyer Help Me?

Abuse can have crippling long-term impacts on survivors. These impacts can carry through into later life, leading to significant medical expenses, time off school, and periods of absence from the workforce including time off work, and instability in employment. Abuse can also negatively impact a survivor’s quality of life, either temporarily or permanently. The impact of abuse can extend beyond survivors to parents, siblings, partners, children, and communities

Holding individual perpetrators and religious institutions responsible for their actions can stop an abuser and reduce the number of people affected in the future. It can also strengthen the claims of others who have suffered from the same abuser or abuse while under the care of the same institution. The legal process can be challenging, but for some it plays a critical role in the healing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve probably seen a lot of lawyers use the term ‘No Win, No Fee’. Long story short: you only pay us when you achieve a successful outcome. So if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.

Let’s break it down.

  • We start by reviewing your claim in detail and give you a clear assessment of your prospects for success. We’re experts in compensation law, so we can give you an accurate assessment of your claim.
  • Once we’ve established that you should pursue your claim, you can tell us if you want us to proceed as your legal representatives. To formally appoint us as your legal representative, you will enter into a ‘Conditional Costs Agreement’ with us. This is a legal contract that sets out the likely costs of running your claim based on our fees, as well as the rights and responsibilities of you as the client and us as your legal representatives.
  • We’ll explain it clearly and thoroughly, with as little legal speak as possible – we promise you’ll understand it completely.
  • Importantly, this agreement will set out the ‘No Win, No Fee’ arrangement in black and white. This specifies that you will not pay us anything if your claim is not successful. Our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement also covers you for disbursements, or outlays. These are expenses that we may need to pay to progress your claim, including medical reports, expert witness fees and barristers’ fees.
  • In certain circumstances, you may be required to pay the other party’s legal costs if you are unsuccessful.
  • Remember, your success rests on you providing us with an honest, comprehensive account of all matters relevant to your claim.
