Some circumstances require independent review by outside professionals. Gregory Love and Kimberlee Norris are civil trial attorneys with more than 50 years combined experience in matters involving sexual misconduct.

As trial attorneys, Love and Norris evaluate past events through the lens of standards of care: what behavior was reasonable in the relevant time period and circumstance encountered, given industry standards of care related to a known risk?

Once the investigative scope and objectives are clearly identified, Love and Norris will assemble a team with appropriate credentials, create a methodology to gather information with sensitivity, process the data, and report findings in an agreed format.

An independent investigation may focus on various events or issues: misconduct, current or past handling of an allegation, internal processes and controls, or past behaviors which may disqualify a ministry leader from continued service.
