Porters Lawyers have acted on behalf of more than 700 men and women throughout Australia in sexual abuse cases against churches and other organisations.
The team at Porters Lawyers understand all facets of clergy sexual abuse cases, having advocated for and defended the rights of victims in numerous priest abuse cases.
We work tirelessly to explore our clients' legal options in a supportive and compassionate manner, with a view to getting you the meaningful compensation you deserve from an institution and calling to account those who are guilty of wrongdoing and cover ups.
Decades of forced adoption in Australia left thousands of individuals and families without a proper connection to each other.
The Australian Government at the time allowed this practice, and over the last 30 years the subsequent consequences to both mother and child have been ignored and suppressed, with many suffering severe trauma. Porters Lawyers have represented and taken class action out on institutions and hospitals involved in this process. The team at Porters strive to find their clients a legal and compassionate resolution.
Porters Lawyers acts for a large number of former members of the Australian Defence Force who suffered abuse during their recruit (or ‘training’) phase within the Australian Army, Royal Australia Navy and Royal Australian Air Force.
We are currently taking action against the Commonwealth of Australia on behalf of our clients for injuries they sustained following horrific sexual and physical abuse perpetrated upon them by fellow recruits, ordinary members and even officers of the Australian Defence Force.
