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.

How to protect a victims identity during trial

You know once we file under John Doe, Jane Doe, the courts will protect that confidentiality. I mean I have had occasions where defendants want to make a motion with the court but we fight those and we’ve been successful, very successful in fact we actually have law changed a couple years ago in Georgia, where a case where the defendant in the church was trying to expose and force a victim to use her name, and we appealed that and we created a new law in Georgia now, and so the victims can proceed under this pseudonym and not use their names.
