A National Law Firm for Victims of Sexual Abuse, Handling cases across the Country

Herman Law has attorneys who are admitted in NY, FL and the California bar (see lawyer bios ). This allows the Herman Law attorneys, if they are not already admitted to the court, to apply to appear as attorneys of record in all 50 States of the United States and Puerto Rico, as well as all Federal District Courts, by requesting that the judge presiding over a case permit them to appear Pro Hac Vice (“for this occasion only”).

Often we do this in association with a knowledgeable local attorney in that jurisdiction who provides insight into local legal custom and practice and assists in the logistics for matters in that jurisdiction.

If I was sexually abused years ago can I bring a suit for damages?

Even if you were sexually abused many years ago, it’s important to speak to a sex abuse lawyer. And the reason that’s important is because every state is different, and every state has what’s called a different statute of limitations which is the deadline by which when you have to file your civil case for sexual abuse. And so, you should speak to a lawyer, who can explain to you and give you advice about whether or not you may still bring the claim. For example, in many states even though the statute of limitations may have expired, there are sometimes these ethical doctrines of law that can be used to get around the statute of limitations. And so, it may be possible even though you were sexually abused years and even decades ago, to bring a case today.
