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.

Sex Abuse Victims Equal Rights (SAVER) Foundation

The SAVER Foundation is very important to me. It stands for the Sex Abuse Victims’ Equal Rights Foundation, and what that’s about is it’s an avenue where I can provide free legal services to victims of sexual abuse. Too often I get a phone call from the victim, and because the case might not be against an institution or some other reason, it’s a case that we wouldn’t take in our firm, and, you know, it’s so hard. It’s a difficult thing because here you have this victim who’s coming forward, and I really wanna be able to help them.

So I set this foundation, and what we do is we take on cases for free, no charge, and it’s what we call pro bono, and it allows us to represent a victim and we file these cases against individual perpetrators. The purpose of the foundation is to provide the access to the court for these people who would otherwise not be able to bring their cases. And we file against the perpetrators and we expose the perpetrator, and so we’re protecting kids in the future, and that’s really important. And by holding the perpetrators accountable, we’re empowering that victim. We’re giving them their chance, their right to the courts, and hopefully it helps them to begin the healing process.
