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.

Jehovah’s Witness Abuse

Jehovah’s Witness Abuse

The Jehovah’s Witnesses not only have a history of sexual abuse, but a history of covering up, and even facilitating sexual abuse by church members. A very seclusive and secretive denomination, the Jehovah’s Witnesses have been accused of protecting predators and the public perception of the church over the safety of children and sexual abuse victims.

Herman Law is knowledgeable in how to bring a lawsuit against the Jehovah’s Witnesses and how to navigate the tactics and obstacles they use to avoid liability.
