Powerful Advocates for the Survivors of Sexual Abuse
In our years of pursuing justice for abuse survivors, our lawyers have not hesitated to take on the most powerful people, institutions and organizations. Our firm continues to fight for sexual abuse victims and is currently representing victims abused as minors by teachers or coaches at public, private and parochial schools throughout the state of Connecticut, as well as by clergy or nuns at religious institutions and doctors and medical professionals such as EMTs and nursing aides at hospitals and medical facilities.
It is important to note that under Connecticut law, any person who claims damages as a result of being molested, sexually abused, sexually assaulted or sexually exploited as a minor has until 30 years past the age of majority (typically until age 48) in which to file a claim in court. Those who are abused after October 1, 2019 have until they turn 51 years of age to bring a claim. Our firm continues to represent clients who were abused as children in the 80s and 90s.
