Employment Lawyer Salt Lake City & all of Utah

Boy Scout Abuse Attorney

Take the first step. Talk privately to a Utah lawyer.

Abuse and assault cases in Utah involving the Boy Scouts of America can be complicated and upsetting legal cases. We know because Salt Lake City attorney Randy M. Andrus has been dealing with complex cases involving abuse for more than three decades.

Now is the time to take action. When the Boy Scouts of American (BSA) filed for bankruptcy earlier in 2020, attorneys for the BSA and victims of BSA abuse set a deadline for filing abuse claims against the BSA – Nov. 16, 2020. If you don’t file a lawsuit before Nov. 16, you may be prohibited from taking any legal action against the Boy Scouts of America.

Don’t miss your opportunity for justice. If you were abused as a child by a scout leader while a member of the Boy Scouts of America, contact the Andrus Law Firm in Salt Lake City. Attorney Randy M. Andrus can talk with you confidentially and free of charge.

Legal issues involving Boy Scout abuse cases

The Boy Scouts of America has a long history of providing programming and guidance to the youth of America, particularly in the state of Utah. Up until 2018, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints required most young men to participate in the BSA. As a result, many people in Utah have participated or belonged to a local BSA council or troop.

Abuse cases involving BSA scoutmasters, assistant scoutmasters or committee members can be complicated cases that bring up a wide range of legal issues. These include:

  • The scoutmaster or assistant scoutmaster denies abusing you or fellow scouts.
  • The abuse occurred decades ago.
  • The scoutmaster or assistant scoutmaster is no longer alive.
  • There is no physical evidence of the abuse.
  • The scoutmaster or assistant scoutmaster lives in another state.

We realize it’s difficult for many people abused by scoutmasters or other adults in the BSA to talk about what happened and to come forward. It is also critical that you take a stand and hold abusers accountable for their actions.

Your case matters. Contact us for a confidential and free consultation.

Taking legal action against a national organization like the Boy Scouts of America or one of its local councils or troops can be an intimidating legal process. You will likely encounter teams of attorneys defending the BSA’s actions and the actions of its scoutmasters.

We know how to handle complex cases. Attorney Andrus and his legal team – including his wife, Cynthia – know how to investigate abuse claims and negotiate effectively with other attorneys and large organizations such as the BSA. That’s why we have a strong track record of success in Utah.

Be prepared for whatever comes up if you decide to take legal action against the Boys Scouts of America. Contact us and schedule your free consultation with Salt Lake City attorney Randy M. Andrus. We can explain all the legal options available to you during your confidential consultation and help you take legal action in a timely manner.
