2016 Recipient Deven Storey

Devin Storey

Devin has represented victims of childhood sexual abuse in civil lawsuits for several years. M.. Storey frequently takes on cases pro bono (without charge) for deserving clients. He has donated his time to help victims of child abuse file police reports or obtain counseling when other legal avenues are closed. On a broader scale, M.. Storey has worked tirelessly to ensure that victims of child molestation have access to the courts. He has filed numerous amicus briefs seeking to persuade appellate courts to allow victims of child abuse more time to understand how they have been impacted and seek justice. M.. Storey has also been involved with several legislative efforts to expand civil and criminal deadlines to hold molesters accountable. In total, he has donated hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of hours seeking to ensure that victims of child abuse are able to seek healing and justice.

The type of work done by Mr. Storey was recently portrayed in the movie “Spotlight”, which shed light on the epidemic of child molestation by Catholic priests within the Archdiocese of Boston. An earlier Academy Award nominated documentary – “Deliver Us From Evil” – also highlighted the problem of child molestation by authority figures, and the role the civil justice system can play in bringing about change.
