Channel 10 News (WHEC) in Rochester, NY recently covered Governor Cuomo’s signing of the Child Victims Act, and the Rochester Diocese mediation process. Our very own, Leander James IV spoke to WHEC about these claims.
“For 13 years now, advocates like myself and others had been trying to get the Child Victims Act passed to get some access to justice for sex abuse survivors in the state. Each survivor heals in their own way, but healing always involves empowerment. Without the Child Victims Act, they had no access to legal process and the healing it can afford.” – Leander James
The passing of the Child Victims Act in New York State has allowed new claims to come forward, and James, Vernon & Weeks, P.A., with an office right in Rochester, is ready to help empower survivors in their claim.
