About Me

Mike Finnegan has worked all aspects of childhood sexual abuse
litigation, including a significant case against the Boy Scouts of
America in Colorado, clergy abuse cases in numerous states, vulnerable
adult sexual abuse and discrimination cases. His law review article on
the statute of limitations for survivors of childhood sexual abuse in
Minnesota was published in 2004 and has been widely acclaimed in the
halls of legal academia and by those seeking legislative relief for
victims of childhood sexual abuse who are burden by unrealistically
short statutes of limitation.

A creative thinker and keen legal
strategist, Mike is an attorney of record in the highly visible case
filed by the Jeff Anderson law firm against the Vatican for the Catholic
Church’s concealment and protection of abusive priests. The case, John
V. Doe v. The Holy See, is currently moving into discovery and trial in
the United States District Court for the District of Oregon.

Mike Finnegan grew up in West St. Paul,
Minnesota and began his legal career at Jeff Anderson & Associates
in 2002 as a law clerk and in 2004 as an Attorney. He received a
Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Yale University in 1999 and
his Juris Doctorate from William Mitchell College of Law in 2004.
