Jeff Herman happens to be an American trial lawyer with many years of experience. He specializes in cases that revolve around victims that have been sexually abused. Jeff Herman has also been personally behind exposing many predators as well as exposing many of the institutions that are behind those predators.
If you are a fan of the actor Corey Feldman, or are a fan of the Team USA volleyball player Sarah Powers-Barnhard you might be interested to know that they have both teamed up on something very important. They have come together so that they can make it so that the Senate Republicans do their job and pass the Child Victims Act. You may have also noticed that there is a new coalition that has been getting a lot of attention lately, the New Yorkers Against Hidden Predators coalition. This coalition has been able to gather a lot of supporters who have helped them with their efforts to pass the Child Victims Act (you can refer to S.809 for more details). Corey Feldman thinks that if he endorses this bill along with Sarah they will be able to get the type of attention that they need for the bill, and they also think that this might stop all of those that are trying to throw it out.
With this bill you will see that a lot can change, as told by Jeff Herman of Herman Law Group, and there are a lot of big differences that can be made with this bill. This Senate bill is also sponsored by Brad Hoylman, D-Manhattan, and it is going to help out those involved in sexual abuse cases by taking out the criminal and civil statutes of limitations within New York state. Also, the bill has been designed so as to create a one year window that should be used for the civil action lawsuits that are time-barred (those that are as old as 50 years) to be heard before the courts.
