Leading Justice is a full-service marketing company working with law firms on a cash buy basis to sign up fully qualified, fraud-free sexual abuse cases. Here at Leading Justice, we can customize your firm’s sexual abuse advertising needs and help you sign up cases via internal cash buys. Our clients only pay an agency fee to cover the cost of sexual abuse advertising, plus a fee for each case we sign, and any data we generate for your firm belongs to you. We will also cross-qualify our contacts, which means any data we generate that doesn’t qualify for the target campaign will be reviewed to determine whether it is eligible for another type of claim. By using advanced approaches to target contacts specifically related to sexual abuse by the Catholic Church, Boy Scouts of America, colleges and universities, and other prominent institutions, Leading Justice can increase your firm’s sexual abuse case load. If you are interested in helping victims of alleged clergy sexual abuse, our extensive consumer reach and direct advertising strategies will give you the confidence and competitive edge you need to allocate your full budget, knowing your money is being spent in the best way possible.
Each law firm we work with at Leading Justice plays an important role in determining how we categorize claims as qualified or not. And while our experience working with plaintiff law firms helps us recognize a great case when we see one, we will custom tailor our sexual abuse case intake specifications to the exact criteria you are seeking. So, if your firm has specific sexual abuse qualifying case criteria you would like us to use, we will train our intake specialists to apply the criteria to each phone call and email they receive. By eliminating the middle man, Leading Justice offers clients an opportunity for internal cash buys of sexual abuse data with no chance of fraud.
Sexual Abuse Litigation
In the aftermath of the 2018 clergy sexual abuse grand jury report in Pennsylvania that sent shockwaves throughout the country, new light has been shed on the continuing sexual abuse crisis in the United States. And with the recent passage of the Child Victims Act in New York, which extended the statute of limitations for sexual abuse victims to pursue legal action and opened a one-year retroactive litigation window for adult survivors of child sexual abuse to sue their abusers in civil court, hundreds of new sexual abuse lawsuits have already been filed against the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts of America and other institutions accused of covering up incidents of child sexual abuse and enabling abusers. The PA grand jury report spurred investigations in other states where members of the clergy were suspected of sexually abusing children and many of these states are now considering or have already passed their own version of the Child Victims Act, extending or eliminating the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse claims.
Thousands of adults who were sexually abused as children have been waiting years, some decades, to have their day in court and hold their abusers, and the institutions that enabled them, accountable for the harm they suffered, and the Child Victims Act gives sexual abuse survivors in New York that chance. On the first day of the one-year lookback window for retroactive child sexual abuse claims in New York, more than 400 lawsuits were filed on behalf of survivors of child sexual abuse perpetrated by members of the Catholic clergy, the Boy Scouts of America, and private institutions, such as schools, colleges and universities. The majority of the claims already filed named Catholic priests and other members of the clergy as the abusers and sought damages from both the abusers and the dioceses accused of harboring them, many of whom had been credibly accused of sexual abuse. In total, as many as 2,000 to 3,000 sexual abuse lawsuits are expected to be filed in New York in the coming year, and Catholic dioceses in other states could find themselves facing a similar wave of lawsuits before too long. So far, a total of 18 states and the District of Columbia have new laws going into effect this year that extend or eliminate the statute of limitations on claims of sexual abuse and many of the states are offering a lookback window for retroactive claims of child sexual abuse.
