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.

Jeff Herman of Herman Law – Founder

As the founder and managing partner of namesake Herman Law, Jeff Herman has devoted his professional life to seeking justice for victims of sexual assault, rape, abuse, and sexual exploitation. As a commercial litigator in the late 1990’s, Jeff Herman was deeply moved by the discovery that a referred woman’s autistic son was abused in his pre-school. Upon further personal investigation, it was discovered that the child’s abuse happened at the hands of an employee, who was also a convicted pedophile. Immediately, Herman recognized his calling, and the scope of his work, as well as his practice, shifted toward specializing in sexual abuse cases.

Amassing years of experience, Herman has grown his practice into one of the nation’s leading law firms specializing in cases of a sexual nature, devoting his entire caseload to this realm of practice. He has provided hundreds of families, survivors, and loved ones with justice, closure, and the ability to regain their rights. Bolstered by the life-changing results he provides to clients, Jeff Herman has successfully embedded deep meaning into his professional scope and has been able to successfully operate his firm with integrity, a strong moral compass, and the business savvy needed to ensure his ability to aide families throughout the years to come.
