New Jersey Sex Abuse Law 2019
On May 13, 2019 Governor Phil Murphy Signed Into Law a New Bill Giving Victims Who Were Previously Denied Justice Two Years to File Civil Lawsuits Against Their Abusers and Those Who Employed Them or for Whom They Volunteered. This Law Applies to Any Victim Regardless of How Many Years Ago He/She Was Sexually Abused.
Attorneys Stephen Rubino and McLaughlin & Lauricella, PC have, for decades, been at the forefront of the fight for the rights of victims who have been sexually abused. Their experience representing victims of sexual abuse goes back to the early 1990’s and before these issues became part of the consciousness of victimization at institutional-levels. The attorneys invite you to compare their experience to other attorneys you are considering to hire. Trust their decades of experience and expertise to help guide you to the path to obtain justice and fair compensation for the injuries you have suffered as a result of being sexually abused.

Priest, rabbis and other clergy who sexually abuse children violate the sacred trust and faith placed in them and the consequences for the victim can last a lifetime.

Youth Organizations & Schools

New Jersey Statue of Limitations
Finally, after years of having the doors of justice closed to them, New Jersey victims of sexual abuse will now be able to hold their abusers and those for whom they worked or volunteered accountable in a court of law. The new law just signed by the Governor, will give victims of sexual abuse, regardless of when they abused or their current age, two years to file an action commencing December 1, 2019.
