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.

Are you willing to take any case?

I don’t take every case that comes through the door. Unfortunately, I get a lot of cases that I’m unable to take for various reasons. One is that there may be nobody to collect against. I do these cases on a contingency fee, which means that I don’t get paid from my clients upfront, I get paid for what I collect for my clients. And for the clients it’s a great thing because people don’t necessarily have the money to hire a lawyer so this doesn’t cost them anything to hire me. But there has to be something at the end as a practical matter to collect from, and so a lot of cases they don’t have that, we’re not able to help them.
