Laffey, Bucci & Kent attorney discusses litigation strategies for child sex abuse cases
PHILADELPHIA (June 2020) – Personal injury law firm Laffey, Bucci & Kent is pleased to announce that attorney Brian Kent recently presented during the first course for Child USA’s three-part series “Best Practices for Litigating Child Sex Abuse Civil Cases” on June 11.
Due to statute of limitations reform across the United States, more child sex abuse (“CSA”) victims have the opportunity to sue their perpetrators and institutions. The program focused on litigation strategies for attorneys in the field of CSA litigation, attorneys looking to expand their practices, and new attorneys.
As a former sex crimes unit prosecutor, Kent is a passionate advocate for justice for all crime victims. He has nearly 16 years of legal experience specializing in representing survivors of abuse, assault, and exploitation. Kent has handled several high-profile cases, including representing survivors of former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, and survivors of abuse at the hands of Catholic priests. He also represented survivors of abuse by Judge William Bradley, a case that resulted in Bradley’s removal from the bench, disbarment, and admission to the abuse as part of the settlement.
Active in national and local crime victim advocacy, Kent serves on the board of directors of Child USA. He also serves as a board member of The National Crime Victim Bar Association. To learn more, visit the firm’s website.
