The Catholic bishops of Colorado announced Monday, October 7, 2019 an independent reparation

and reconciliation program that will provide for victims of clerical abuse in the dioceses

who were minors at the time the abuse occurred. 

The compensation program offers clergy abuse victims an opportunity to settle

claims without having to go to court - no matter how long ago the sexual abuse occurred. 






What are Catholic Diocese Compensation Programs?  

Diocese compensation programs offer victims of clergy abuse an opportunity to obtain cash settlements without going to court.  This does not mean that you should go through a diocese compensation program without an attorney representing your interests.  While many of the dioceses will tell you you do not need an attorney, keep in mind that their attorneys get to evaluate your claim and in many instances the dioceses can have an investigator question you. 


I am an experienced clergy abuse attorney who has worked in Diocesan Settlement programs across the United States and I can help you maximize your claim.  Programs will open soon so don't delay. 

Let's get started on your claim preparation now.  Call today.
