Help in any state New York Child Victims Act

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.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon Church)

The insularity of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon Church) has created a culture of secrecy and turning a blind eye to sexual abuse within the church. Mormon Church officials have historically handled allegations of sexual abuse “in house”, focusing more on protecting the church from outside backlash than protecting victims. This culture has resulted in the shielding of accused predators from exposure, denying victims the justice they deserve, and failing to protect victims from known predators.

Herman Law has represented victims of sexual abuse perpetrated by Church leaders and has experience in penetrating the shield of secrecy and protection of sexual predators so that victims receive the justice they deserve.
