50 States

New York Child Victims Act

The New York Child Victims Act makes a necessary change to long standing precedent in statutes of limitations in child sexual assault cases. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has made this Act one of his top initiatives for 2018-19, and after the Legislature voted to approve the legislation on Monday Jan 28th,2019, it now heads to the Governor’s desk for his signature.

The Child Victims Act will extend the statute of limitations on child sexual abuse crimes to the age of 28 in criminal cases and the age of 50 in civil cases, with a one year-window to bring civil claims for victims below that age limit.

For more information on the act and if you feel that a claim can be revived, contact us today.

We’re Focused on Healing

Our proven & experienced process helps the victim heal and everything falls into place.

Sexual abuse occurs in many forms and affects many types of victims. Consequently, sex abuse claims are extremely varied; parents may bring a claim on behalf of a child, or adults may file a claim relating to sexual abuse they endured during childhood. No matter the details, sexual abuse claims are extremely sensitive in nature and require the attention of experienced attorneys.

Our sexual abuse attorneys have successfully handled rape and sexual abuse claims all over the United States. We are dedicated to helping victims and bringing those responsible for the abuse to justice. Our commitment to this cause even extends outside of our practice. For example, our Founding Partner, Jeff Herman, is a community advocate and works with several organizations dedicated to the prevention of childhood sexual abuse through education.
