New York Sexual Abuse Attorneys

Were You Abused as a Child Attending a School in New York? Are You the Parent of An Abuse Victim?

Manly Stewart & Finaldi Can Help You Seek the Justice & Closure You Deserve

A major legislative change in New York has been enacted in the pursuit of bringing child sex abusers to justice. The newly passed bill allows victims of child sex abuse the option to file a civil lawsuit against the offender up until their 55th birthday. Previously, child sexual abuse survivors had only until their 23rd birthday to seek civil action. Additionally, the new law allows the revival of currently barred cases for one year . This means if you previously had a barred claim, you may be able to file one within one year no matter what your age is.

If you were sexually abused as a child by a priest, schoolteacher, or another person in a position of authority, Manly Stewart & Finaldi would like to help you find your voice. Our law firm has secured the largest settlements against public school districts in the entire country for claims involving child sex abuse — we were the legal team that helped secure a $140 million global settlement against the Los Angeles Unified School District in 2014. With more than 25 years of legal experience focused on the representation of victims of sexual assault, abuse, and harassment, we have been able to recover a grand total of over $2 billion in damages for our clients. Standing up to an abuser can be intimidating, especially if you were a child when the abused occurred. Let our New York school abuse lawyers be your legal champions and instill you with the courage to seek justice and compensation.
