Profile of Jeffrey Anderson, aggressive legal advocate for abuse victims
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.
