We Are Here To Help You

The aftermath of childhood sexual abuse is extremely challenging for victims and their families. In some cases, grown men and women only start to realize what happened when they reach adulthood. The trauma is so deep, they are unable to face it sooner. Parents of abuse victims suffer in their own way, as well, as they try to help their children overcome the trauma and fight for justice.

If you or your child has suffered childhood sexual abuse, you are not alone. We are here to help you.

At Gianforcaro Law, we have been helping clients for 30 years. We have helped countless people just like you and families just like yours throughout Warren and Hunterdon counties, as well as the entire state of New Jersey. At our firm, you will find an attorney who truly cares about your situation, who has focused on this area of law for a long time, and who can help you get the results you need.

Claims Against People In Authority

One of the biggest challenges of childhood sexual abuse claims is that they are often perpetrated by people who are in a position of authority. This gives the children under their authority a feeling of powerlessness, and it gives the perpetrators the trust of parents and other grownups.

At Gianforcaro Law, we are experienced with taking cases against priests and other clergy members, teachers, counselors and people in positions of honor and authority. We will not let a perpetrator’s standing in the community keep us from getting justice for you and your family.

Over the years we have been handling childhood sexual abuse claims, we have obtained more than $10 million in settlements for our clients.

For Adults Who Were Abused As Children

Recently, New Jersey has extended its statute of limitations for childhood sexual abuse claims. This means that if you were sexually abused as a child, even if it was years ago, you might still be able to make a claim. Talk with our team to learn more.
