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.

What can I expect once I hire you?

Once you hire my firm to represent you, what you can expect is that number one, you will have my full attention. I will sit down with you, I will sit down with my investigative unit, and I’ll sit down with my lawyers. Up front we will strategize and come up with a game plan that best fits your case. We will always be focusing on making sure everything we do is to help you heal. Then what we’ll do is we’ll investigate the case. We’ll do everything we can upfront to get documents, to get witness statements, to get police reports, to get evidence in the case, then we’ll file the case. When we file the case of course you’ll be informed, it’s important to me at the firm that all my clients have constant and open communication with my firm. I have a rule here that every single client phone call and e-mail gets returned the same day period. And that will happen ,and if it doesn’t happen, you call me, and I’ll make sure it happens.

But the other things you can expect at Herman Law is that we will aggressively prosecute the case, we will move the case forward, we will we will take our depositions we would get our discovery and we will move the case forward to trial as soon as possible because I know that for the victims, there’s a tremendous human cost to these cases being delayed. While this case is being delayed, victims are waiting for justice and so by moving the cases forward aggressively and getting them resolved, we’re bringing a sense of closure, which in turn brings us a measure of justice to the victims, and my clients.
