Boy Scouts Ineligible Volunteer Files
Some of our clients have decided to speak out regarding the Boy Scouts bankruptcy and what it means to them. Our lawyers have also been featured in a number of news stories about the bankruptcy because of our long history of helping Boy Scout abuse survivors and our work in a large number of the Catholic bankruptcies.
Any of our clients featured in these stories chose to participate, including the use of their names. Please know that most states and courts allow survivors of childhood sexual abuse to protect their identity from public disclosure.
