The deadline for past claims against the Archdiocese of New Orleans has passed: The last day to file claims was March 1, 2021.
In this Advocate New Orleans article by Ramon Antonio Vargas, “New Clergy Sex Abuse Claims Pour In”, Lamothe Law Firm attorney Kristi Schubert talks about what an “emotionally grueling” process it is for abuse survivors to file a claim. For survivors having to remember and detail past abuse is gut wrenching. “There’s no doubt in my mind that some people didn’t file a claim because they couldn’t decide yet if they were ready to come forward, and the deadline was just too soon for them.”
Lamothe Law Firm has been handling child sexual abuse cases for years, providing unparalleled advocacy for survivors of sexual abuse. Here at Lamothe Law Firm, we understand how difficult it can be to come forward, which is why we are here to provide support every step of the way. Our intake team are often the first people survivors confide in about their experience, and we are proud to provide a safe environment in which to do so.
