New York Child Sexual Abuse Lawyers
Advocacy Lawyers for New York Child Victims of Sexual and Physical Abuse
New York State recently passed the “Child Victims Act,” which will allow victims up to the age of 55 years old to file lawsuits against their abusers. The Act allows a “look-back” window for one year to file suits which may have been previously barred by the statute of limitations. Our firm is aggressively litigating civil lawsuits on behalf of abuse victims.

Where Will My Settlement Come from? Who Pays the Settlement?
As your lawyers, we determine the appropriate defendants and what assets they have. Tracing defendants and their successor entities who may be subject to liability may take time but is necessary for a complete recovery. While defendants may set up settlement programs with categorized awards, our firm carefully consults with each client to determine what resolution is best, which may include a trial.
