Jeff Anderson, Founder
Jeff Anderson is widely recognized as a pioneer in sexual abuse litigation and a champion of survivors of childhood sexual abuse. In nearly four decades as a litigator, Jeff has represented thousands of survivors and their families and has tried over two hundred and fifty jury trials to verdict across the country through the crucible of the courtroom. Known for his optimism, energy and compassion for his clients, Jeff is credited with being instrumental in exposing the large-scale cover-up of predator priests in the early 1980’s and continues those efforts with even more vigor and resources today.
Anderson’s tireless efforts also extend far beyond the courtroom. He is a frequent lecturer, survivor advocate, author, and standard-bearer for legislative and judicial protection of children and the prevention of childhood sexual abuse. As one of the first trial lawyers in America to publicly and aggressively lobby to initiate lawsuits against sexual predators of children, Jeff brings heat and light to expose offenders and the systems of secrecy within the institutions that protect them.
While Jeff has received many awards and recognition throughout the years, his greatest honor is the trust reposed in him by survivors and their families. From them he draws strength, courage and inspiration in the shared journey of hope and healing.
