    Attorney Profile

    As a partner at Crew Janci LLP who has handled over a hundred sexual abuse cases, Peter B. Janci represents victims throughout the country, associating local counsel. With creativity and zealous advocacy, he has taken on institutions such as the Boy Scouts of America, the Mormon Church, the Catholic Church and a variety of local and state governments and private and public institutions. With a decade of experience, he has moved many cases through mediation and arbitration and tried several bench and jury trials.

    In 2010, Mr. Janci was part of a team that obtained an almost $20 million verdict after a child sexual abuse trial against the Boy Scouts of America. While he is a passionate advocate for survivors or sexual abuse, he does more than represent them legally. Mr. Janci also presents and writes about crime victims’ rights, sexual abuse and mandatory reporting. While working with clients, he also advocates to change legislation to provide better access to justice and legal protections for the vulnerable.

    While his practice is mostly focused on sexual abuse cases, he also takes a small number of wrongful death, catastrophic injury and psychiatrist/psychological malpractice cases. He is an active member of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy, the American Bar Association, the Multnomah County Bar Association, the Oregon Bar Association, the American Association for Justice, the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association and the National Crime Victim Bar Association.

    Mr. Janci graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in international relations and political science from Wheaton College. At Northwestern College of Law at Lewis and Clark College, he then obtained his Juris Doctor, graduating cum laude.
