Our Focus

The Challenge of Proving Sexual Assault

A sexual abuse case involving a minor often necessitates demonstrating that the supervising employer or organization was aware or should have been aware of the offender's potential danger to children. At Lambrou Law, we excel in proving such cases, meticulously examining institutional protocols and whether any red flags were missed or overlooked. From inappropriate gifts to ignored complaints, we persistently pursue the truth.

Championing Your Cause

Recently, our firm was retained by victims recalling abuse by a vice-principal at St. Demetrios school in Jamaica, NY. If you have been victimized at St. Demetrios, reach out to us now. Additionally, our firm regularly leverages the extensive nationwide database of Catholic Church members credibly accused of minor sexual abuse, published by ProPublica.

Understanding the New York Statute of Limitations for Sexual Abuse

The New York Child Victims Act, signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo on February 14, 2019, permits civil claims for sexual abuse injuries against both the perpetrator and the institution until the victim is 55. The Act also offers a "look-back window," providing an opportunity for previously barred claims to be filed within a specific period.

The “Look-Back Window” Explained

The "look-back window" is a period with no statute of limitations for children who are sex abuse victims in New York. Starting from August 14, 2019, you can file a previously time-barred claim until January 14, 2021.

Recent Victories: Demonstrating Our Expertise

Our firm has already secured multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for sexual abuse victims, including a $11.45 million verdict for two teens abused by a youth minister and a $27.5 million settlement against the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn.
