The Child Victims Act Gives New Rights to Abuse Survivors!! The Child Victims Act went into effect on August 14, 2019. The new law provides all abuse survivors, regardless of their current age, one year to file a claim for the abuse they suffered. The law also extends the statute of limitations for some claims, but the one year “window” to file a claim applies to all abuse survivors.
Sexual Abuse is a crime and you may be intitled to compensation. Institutions such as the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts, Rockefeller University, and other have ufortunately defiled the public trust by harming those least able to protect themselves. Please contact us to learn your legal options, including filing a lawsuit or trying to resolve your claim informally without litigation.
The one-year window could be significantly shortened if a defendant, such as a Diocese or the Boy Scouts, files for bankruptcy. If you or someone you love was abused, the time to act is now. Please contact us to learn about your options as the time to file a claim may be limited. We only represent abuse survivors, not the Catholic Church, not the Boy Scouts, and not the institution who enabled the abuse.

Sexual Abuse Reports
These reports contains the names of individuals who have been accused of committing sexual offenses against minors. While lawsuits were filed involving many of these alleged perpetrators, the vast majority of the claims against these individuals have been settled or have not been fully evaluated in a civil court. Accordingly, the allegations should be considered just allegations and should not be considered proved or substantiated in a court of law. All individuals should be considered innocent until proven guilty. In some situations, the statute of limitations has expired preventing the cases from being heard in a court of law.
