We represent a number of people who were sexually abused by priests who served in the Archdiocese of New York. More than 80 priests within the Archdiocese have been accused of childhood sexual abuse, but many of the allegations were not investigated because of New York’s outdated statute of limitations.

Please know some of the allegations are disputed by the individuals listed below. Where possible we have provided a summary of the allegations and a list of the individual’s known assignments.
