The Diocese of Rochester issued a statement on March 14th, 2019 stating that it would no longer accept new applicants for its reconciliation and compensation program. James, Vernon & Weeks, P.A. has represented most of the survivors of clergy abuse who have used this program to resolve their claims without costly litigation. This news does not foreclose other legal options available to survivors.
If you are a survivor of clergy abuse and would like more information on what claims may be available to you, please contact us.
