OTHER SEXUAL ABUSE CASES IN NEW YORK
We represent hundreds of abuse survivors in New York. Although most news reports focus on cases against the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts of America, and Rockefeller University Hospital (regarding Dr. Archibald), we represent abuse survivors against many different youth-serving organizations, including:

Knights of Columbus
Foster care agencies
Juvenile diversion programs
If you or someone you love was sexually abused, please contact us to learn your legal options. The Child Victims Act gives all abuse survivors, regardless of their current age, one year to file a civil claim for the abuse they suffered. The deadline to file a claim under that one year “window” is August 14, 2019, to August 14, 2020. However, the one year could be significantly shortened if a defendant files for bankruptcy, in which case a bankruptcy judge could require abuse survivors to file claims within months of when the bankruptcy is filed. If you contact us we can explain your options and help ensure your rights are protected.
