Profile of Jeffrey Anderson, aggressive legal advocate for abuse victims

Catholic World News - April 19, 2010

The Washington Post profiles Jeffrey Anderson, the unconventional lawyer whose lawsuits against the Catholic Church had brought in $60 million in settlements for sex-abuse victims by 2002. Anderson, whose aggressive legal tactics have added substantially to that figure in more recent years, says that he takes from 25 to 40% of the settlements as his own fee. Anderson has been a regular source for media reports criticizing Church handling of the sex-abuse issue.
