New York Child Victims Act

Provisions of the New York Child Victims Act (CVA)

The New York Child Victims Act (CVA) originally authorized victims of sexual abuse to file lawsuits against abusers and their institutions for one year starting August 15, 2019.  Governor Cuomo subsequently extended the one year filing window for an additional five months so that it now expires on January 14, 2021. This one-time window will permit the filing of hundreds, if not thousands, of cases that were previously barred due to the statute of limitations that precluded victims from bringing lawsuits after they turned 23 years of age. The “look-back window” of one-year permits survivors of any age to bring lawsuits against their attackers regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred. In addition to the “look-back window,” survivors of sexual abuse can now file civil lawsuits for sexual abuse until they reach the age of 55.

If you or a loved one was subjected to abuse—by an individual or someone working for an entity (i.e. Boy Scouts of America or Catholic)—please call us now.

TESTIMONIALS

David has helped my small business (photography) with several proposals and bid letters. He also took the time to explain the language of each letter. I would definitely use David again for all the legal needs of my business! William F Spencer

I worked with David while at the District Attorney's office. David is very knowledgeable in the law. David has outstanding attention to detail and the critical ability to see the big picture, then find and question the inconsistencies in the reports. This is a fundamental skill that makes a good criminal defense lawyer great. I highly recommend David.

David is a tireless advocate for his clients and a consummate professional with whom I've worked on a variety of legal matters. His character and integrity surely set him apart from many of his contemporaries. As colleague, I wholeheartedly recommend David to anyone seeking counsel in the NYC area.

David is a first-rate trial lawyer. Having had the opportunity to both watch him in trial and personally try a case with him, I can say that I would be glad to have him working with me on a case. His delivery is excellent, as is his ability to connect with a jury.

Knowledgable and great to work withI can't say enough good things about David. My husband needed his help with language for documents he'd need for his business. David was knowledgeable and told us exactly what we needed to hear. I can't think of anyone else I'd want to work with. The next time we need legal counsel, we're calling David.

When my mother suffered back and shoulder injuries due to a car accident, Mr. Leigh went above and beyond to make sure she was rightfully compensated for her traumatic ordeal. He was tough with the insurance company yet very patient with my older mom, as he navigated her through these complex negotiations. He exemplifies what a personal injury attorney should be and we highly recommend him.

David is a top-notch lawyer who is very diligent in all that he does. He is not only a sharp legal mind, but actually has interpersonal skills that make him a caring advocate for his clients. I have had the privilege of working with David in private law practice and can easily say that few attorneys match him in personability, advocacy, verbal ability, and in-court and deposition strategy.

Mr. Leigh and his staff were absolutely amazing from start to finish. Every person I came in contact with or spoke to was very polite and helpful. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Leigh throughout my case. He took such a stressful situation and made everything an easy process. He was along my side the whole way and was open with communication, even if this meant answering my emails after hours. He put up one hell of a fight and we got a great outcome. I would personally recommend hiring the Law Office of David S. Leigh to anyone needing a strong personal injury attorney!

Mr. Leigh took the time to educate me on my case so that I was fully aware of the process. It's hard to express the peace of mind his firm provided for me and my family. The best advice I can give is to call him. The larger firms didn't want to give us the time of day. I wish I would have contacted Mr. Leigh sooner!

My experience with David Leigh was excellent. I was a bit reluctant to hire an attorney, but I was treated respectfully, and he took my case seriously. I felt that he wanted to get the best result for me. It was incredibly positive – he felt like a friend to me. He called me for any question he had, and I was able to call him multiple times for any silly questions that I would have. I would recommend the David Leigh to any friends and family who need his services. If I ever need an attorney in the near future, I would not hesitate to return to the law office of David Leigh.

Mr. Leigh helped us with a civil rights issue we were having at the start of 2021. He advised us well and helped us through a very stressful time. He was readily available and easy to access. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to navigate the system well. I highly recommend Mr. Leigh for anyone seeking help with legal issues.

David is more than a hard working personal injury attorney. He is very empathetic and a compassionate listener. He sees people, not simply case files. When I worked with David I always felt he had my best interests at heart. He thinks not only about the immediate but of the lasting effects that injuries from car accidents, negligence, or other circumstances will have on your life. If you want a firm, that will take care of you like family you have found the ONLY place you should call. Thank you David for making an unfortunate and inconvenient situation an overall wonderful experience.

Mr. Leigh and his staff embarked on a two-year journey with me. Mr. Leigh is knowledgeable, empathetic, sympathetic, diligent and not afraid to engage the experts. I was always updated via email/phone/text. Mr. Leigh's staff is very warm and caring. After my case was settled, I felt like I had gained a friend

My wife and I were involved in a car accident in Hell’s Kitchen a little over a year ago. The first two attorneys we contacted didn’t believe we had much of a case, and turned us down. A friend of my wife’s recommended Mr. Leigh after being represented by him when she had been hit riding her bike around the Central Park loop.Mr. Leigh and his law firm were very good about communicating with us through every step of the long, drawn out process, and he was even able to reach a settlement for us before we had to go to court. I don’t know if we could ever thank Mr. Leigh enough for what he has done for our family.
