Clergy Abuse2024-04-20T07:08:06+00:00

The team at Porters Lawyers understand all facets of institutional abuse cases, having advocated for, and defended the rights of, survivors for over 20 years. 

We work tirelessly to explain our clients’ legal rights in a supportive and compassionate manner, with a view to calling to account those who are guilty of wrongdoing and cover ups and obtaining the compensation that our clients are entitled to according to law. 

Our team is committed to travelling anywhere in Australia or abroad to ensure that the voices of survivors are heard. If you or a loved one has experienced institutional child sexual abuse perpetrated by a priest, brother, nun, or other clergy member please contact Porters Lawyers for a confidential discussion.
