In 2013, the State of Minnesota enacted the Child Victims Act - a new law that allows victims of child sexual abuse a three-year window to file a civil action—even if in the past you were told that because of a statute of limitations you could not. Keep in mind that this very unique window of opportunity for survivors of sexual abuse as a child to begin a journey of hope, healing and justice is only for three years and will expire on May 25, 2016. Because the Child Victims Act has a time limit, we suggest you allow adequate time to process your case.
Thirty years ago Jeff Anderson was the first lawyer in Minnesota to file civil claims for survivors of sexual abuse by clergy and others in positions of power. Now Jeff Anderson is the most experienced sexual abuse lawyer in Minnesota and is in a unique position to help survivors take advantage of this new and welcome opportunity to obtain justice.
Be assured that your privacy will be respected and your identity can always remain confidential as you go through this legal process to seek justice for yourself and accountability for those responsible for the harm you have suffered. Jeff Anderson is the most successful and experienced priest abuse attorney in Minnesota and he and his staff of attorneys and paralegals offer the most compassionate and supportive support as you begin your journey in search of hope, healing and justice.
