Matthews & Associates Evaluating Penn State Child Abuse Cases

Few things in life can be more shattering than an elder’s abuse of a child’s sacred trust. Adults who break that trust must be held accountable. We trust that God or the Great Spirit which moves through all living things will hold abusers accountable in some way someday. Meanwhile, the civil court system exists to bring such people to earthly justice.

The Attorneys at Matthews & Associates fully appreciate the delicacy required to develop cases of this type, especially in light of the intense media surrounding a potential Penn State Lawsuit. We make every effort to prosecute them as “John Doe” cases (entirely that way when possible) to preserve the anonymity, privacy and dignity of the victim(s). We never disclose the name of any client to the defense or anyone else without both the verbal and the express written consent of that client.

If you or someone you love was sexually abused by a trusted elder – be that abuser a clergyman, coach, teacher or any other professional in a position of trust – call Matthews & Associates today for a free consultation, or email attorney David Matthews directly at or attorney Julie Rhoades at, or ask for either at the main number 713-522-5250, or (toll free) 888-520-5202.

Matthews & Associates operates in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
