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.

The Best Way to Protect Children is to Expose Predators and the Institutions that Protect Them

Sexual abuse thrives in secrecy and silence. When our brave clients speak out and stand up for themselves in the public eye, not only does it create awareness for potential victims and their families, but it often empowers those victims who are suffering in silence.

The media is particularly crucial to the advancement of our cause to protect children. Through press conferences, media statements, and television interviews, we can shine a light on this dark problem. Members of the media often contact our attorneys to offer comment on our own cases, as well as various issues surrounding sexual abuse, rape, and sexual exploitation in the news.
