Why Should I Contact You Now?  Can I Wait?

If you survived abuse at Briscoe Memorial School, or at the hands of a Christian Brother, you likely need to file a claim with the bankruptcy court by May 11, 2012, or August 1, 2012, in order to protect your rights.

We have provided more information on the bankruptcy on a website for all survivors, but the Christian Brothers have obtained a court order that requires all abuse survivors to file a claim by a date certain.  If you fail to file a claim by that date, your claim may be forever barred.  This “bar date” is why the Christian Brothers filed for bankruptcy protection — they want to limit the number of survivors who can recover for what happened to them.  Read more information about the deadlines.

Why Should I Contact You?  Can I File on My Own?

We have helped abuse survivors in a number of the Catholic bankruptcies, and we have been actively involved with the Christian Brothers bankruptcy since it was filed.  In the past ten years, we have represented more survivors of Christian Brothers abuse than any other law firm in the United States.

Whether you decide to file a claim is up to you, and you do not need an attorney to file a claim, but we can explain your options regarding the bankruptcy in a free, confidential consultation.  We are not affiliated with the Christian Brothers or the Catholic church, and anything you discuss with us will remain confidential.

Even if you do not contact us, please make sure you talk to another attorney who can help make sure your rights are protected. These entities filed for bankruptcy so they can try to shield their assets and avoid being held fully accountable for their actions. The only way to prevent that injustice for yourself and others is for you to come forward before the deadline.
