Passage of the New York Child Victims Act has been a long and contentious legislative battle. HoganWillig PLLC has been directly involved in the fight to pass the Child Victims Act. In 2015, Attorney William A. Lorenz, Jr. traveled to Albany to lobby for the bill with one of HoganWillig’s clients. Assemblywoman Margaret Markey invited him to work with several downstate attorneys on amending the Child Victims Act in the hopes of getting it passed. While the bill did not pass in 2015, HoganWillig continued to lobby on behalf of its clients.
