CT Boy Scout Sex Abuse Attorney Focusing On The Well-Being Of Former Boy Scouts Suffering From Sexual Abuse By Scoutmasters

When adults are put into an authoritative role over young children, they have an obligation to honor the trust placed in them. Scoutmasters with the Boy Scouts of America exploiting that control through acts of sexual abuse does more than just shatter trust. Their predatory practices also change the lives of victims immediately and for years into the future. The Boy Scouts of America is a high-profile organization with a history that goes back nearly an entire century. However, a significant portion of that history involves sexual abuse of Boy Scouts by scoutmasters during camping trips and other Boy Scout functions. Traditionally, these predators are skilled in locating organizations and authoritative positions where they can commit crimes against children and then threaten or bribe them into silence. Boy Scouts who have been sexually abused at an early age by CT Scout Leaders such as Alton Parady in Southern CT, David Kress of Thompson, CT or David (Dirk) Davenport of Madison, CT should contact us now.   If you, or anyone you know has been abused please call our firm.

 02/21/2012 News conference at the Omni Hotel in New Haven.  Covered by local TV stations, Attorney Frank Bartlett of Bartlett Legal Group in Cheshire CT and Attorney Kelly Clark of Portland, Oregon announce a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America and the Connecticut Yankee Council of the Boy Scouts saying they knew or should have known that convicted abuser David “Dirk” Davenport had molested boys in Minnesota and Nebraska prior to his activities in Connecticut. Attorney Clark passed away in December of 2013.  Attorney Bartlett was very fortunate to have worked with Attorney Clark, one of the nation’s leaders in helping eliminate sexual abuse in scouting.  Attorney Clark was co-counsel with Attorney Bartlett on several Boy Scouts of America abuse cases in Connecticut.  For over thirty years Attorney Clark represented hundreds of child molestation victims in litigation against what he called “institutions of trust” — the Catholic Church, and the Boy Scouts of America. He helped force mammoth and beloved organizations to concede to decades of sexual abuse within their ranks, or to efforts to keep knowledge of abuse secret from the public.  The knowledge Attorney Bartlett gained by working with Attorney Clark has been invaluable in representing sexually abused Boy Scouts here in Connecticut.

What to expect at your initial consultation

Clients who retain our firm receive the validation they need at the initial, confidential consultation. In addition to reviewing timelines of the abuse and locations where sexual molestation occurred, clients are directed to literature that includes Scout’s Honor, a book that covers abuse that occurred to other boy scouts. They are given the needed reassurance that they are not at fault nor are they alone. Legal action may not be the first step. Getting the treatment and counseling you need may be necessary to get certain issues under control.  Civil actions can take place following the criminal process or concurrently with the criminal process, although the presentation of criminal charges against the perpetrator is not a necessary precursor to filing a civil action.

We also represent clients with sexual abuse by priests, medical professionals, teachers and others
