Leander James helps survivors reclaim power through the Rochester Archdiocese mediation program

Leander James, of James, Vernon & Weeks, P.A. spoke with WHEC news in Rochester, NY while attending hearings for several clients in the Rochester Archdiocese mediation program. The program, which is entirely voluntary, gives survivors of abuse the opportunity to have their claims heard in a non-litigation setting. Claimants can choose to accept the award given by the mediator or continue to pursue their claims in court. “Through a confidential process,” James said, “It gives these folks a forum to confidentially talk about what happened to them and, in doing so, I can tell you that the survivors of sexual abuse really reclaim their power.” For more information, see https://www.whec.com/news/special-mediator-seeks-to-deliver-justice-in-church-sex-abuse-cases/5211512/?cat=565
