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.

Who is protecting my child during a deposition?

One of the benefits of having a civil lawyer in a sex abuse case is that when there is a criminal case is going on when the child is being deposed by the criminal defense attorney for the perpetrator is that the family doesn’t have the right to be in the room with their child. And the prosecutor who is in the room with the child is not representing the child because the child is the victim and is a witness in the case. The prosecutor represents the state in the criminal case. And so, as the civil lawyer I go into the deposition with my client who’s a child and I go in to protect their rights.
