Attorneys for Survivors
of Child Sexual Abuse in New Jersey
Important News!! On March 25, 2019, the New Jersey legislature voted to change the law so all survivors of childhood sexual abuse!! Regardless of their current age, all abuse survivors would have two years to file a claim once the law becomes effective. The new law would also extend the statute of limitations for some claims, but all abuse survivors would be able to take advantage of the two year “window” to file a claim, regardless of how old they are and regardless of when the abuse occurred.
Many people are confused about how the new law would work, so please contact us for a free, confidential consultation to learn your legal options and to ensure your legal rights are protected. We represent multiple abuse survivors in New Jersey with claims against the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts, and others. You are not alone, and it was not your fault.

When a child survives abuse by a person in a position of trust and authority, the resulting harm and damage can last a lifetime. But even as an adult, most abuse survivors do not realize how they were harmed, and many continue to believe it was their fault. If you were sexually abused as a child, it was not your fault and you are not alone.
