It's Time For Truth
It’s time for your voice to be heard. It’s time to hold institutions accountable for covering up decades of sexual abuse. It’s your time. If you are a survivor of sexual abuse in New York, a new law gives you the chance to expose your offender and pursue justice publicly or anonymously, as a John or Jane Doe. This includes abuse committed by:
- A priest or other member of the clergy
- A Boy Scout leader, Scoutmaster, or other BSA volunteer
- A teacher, coach, or other authority figure
It's Time For The Abuse Of Children To Stop
Our firm represents survivors of child sexual abuse by Catholic clergy and other institutions. Our firm uses civil litigation to seek justice for survivors of child sexual abuse and has tirelessly fought for survivor rights, for the disclosure of secret perpetrator identities and files held by offending institutions, and for a safer world for our children. We have a reputation for being the best at what we do, and that begins and ends with our ability to support, protect and guide survivors along their journey towards justice and healing.
It's Time To Take Your Power Back
The New York Child Victims Act has temporarily lifted the statute of limitations allowing survivors of sexual abuse to take legal action. This new law gives survivors the chance to break through the silence, shame and isolation caused by sexual abuse and pursue justice and healing. Under this new law, survivors of child sexual abuse have one year take legal action against their abusers and the institutions that may have protected them – no matter the age of the survivor, when the abuse occurred, or if the perpetrator is alive or dead. But this window is only open for one year, beginning August 14, 2019.
You are not alone. We are here to help.
It’s time for justice. It's time to bring the truth out into the light. It’s time for accountability and healing. Before making a decision concerning such serious and sensitive matters, we encourage all survivors of priest sexual abuse to consult with legal counsel before proceeding with a claim against the Archdiocese of New York, the Diocese of Albany, the Diocese of Brooklyn, the Diocese of Buffalo, the Diocese of Ogdensburg, the Diocese of Rochester, the Diocese of Rockville Center, or the Diocese of Syracuse.
