New Jersey Catholic Church & Sexual Abuse
New Jersey’s Catholic Dioceses have engaged in a decade’s long cover-up of child sexual abuse by catholic clergy. As a result, in September 2018, New Jersey announced the creation of a special task force to investigate allegations of priests’ child sexual abuse within New Jersey’s Catholic dioceses, and Catholic officials’ efforts to cover up that abuse.
There Are Deadlines To File A Claim
In May 2019, New Jersey’s governor signed a law that dramatically changed the legal landscape for catholic clergy abuse victims in the state. Under New Jersey’s new law, child sexual abuse survivors will have a two-year “window” to sue their abusers and the Church starting December 1, 2019.
New Jersey’s Catholic Dioceses have also established sexual abuse “compensation funds” for survivors. Survivors who desire to file a compensation claim have until December 31, 2019. Claimants must register for the program by October 31, 2019.
We currently represent many New Jersey Catholic Church abuse victims. If you or a loved one is a victim of childhood sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, call us to schedule a consultation at 877-214-3238, or fill out the form.

Ben and Nate are great guys. They walked me through the whole process, from beginning til the end. The receptionist and very nice. Answer all my questions and concerns. I will refer them to anyone. Their not like other lawyers that talk around the topic. They tell you just how it is or how they believe it will be. Thank you guys so much.
Ben and Nate took their time in handling my case with compassion and care. I never had to wonder what was going on. They always made sure to include me in each and every decision that needed to be made before they were made. Their entire staff was always very polite and knowledgeable. I cannot say enough kind words about Andreozzi + Foote; they are simply the best!
One of the best personal injury lawyers in the country. Great experience. Really genuine people at Andreozzi and Associates.
Handled our case SO well even though it took a long time to settle, and STILL helps us with paperwork related to the settlement account every now and then. They were honest with us from the get-go, worked REALLY hard on our behalf, and always kept in touch with us about what was going on. So pleased.
When you and your child are victims of a horrid crime it’s hard to understand why things are the way they are. Information and answers are what you want, but unfortunately the system doesn’t offer that. Nathaniel has fielded and patiently listened to a broken mother wanting nothing more than for someone to help her understand why she has no answers, and through these phone calls Nathaniel has been very informative, honest and upfront. I would recommend Nathaniel and this firm to anyone who is seeking answers, help and professionalism in a firm when going through such difficult times.
Can’t say enough about the kindness and compassion of this law office. They helped me immensely with a difficult case and the level of support they provided me was stellar.
