Representation of Victims of Rape and Sexual Assault

Victims of rape and sexual assault have been traumatized in terrible ways that only other victims can truly understand. Unfortunately, the justice system can sometimes seem so confusing and intimidating that many victims of rape and sexual assault ultimately suffer from feelings of "secondary victimization". If you or someone you love has been the victim of rape or sexual assault, you should strongly consider consulting with an expert to help you understand the process and your rights within that system. We always encourage our clients to cooperate to the fullest with law enforcement from the outset. However, the criminal justice system all too often fails to produce convictions in these difficult cases, and even when they do, those convictions often fall far short of making their victims feel whole or as if justice has been done.

Galluzzo & Arnone partner Matthew Galluzzo is a former prosecutor that worked in the famed Sex Crimes Unit of the Manhattan D.A.'s Office. As such, he is uniquely qualified to help you better understand your rights and help you pursue any possible civil claims against your attacker. His expertise has been recognized by the South African government, among others, who hired him in 2012 to work as a consultant and instructor for South African law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of rape and sexual assault cases. He has also appeared as a legal commentator on rape and sexual assault cases in numerous American and international news media, including the New York Times and Reuters, among others. More importantly, though, Matthew Galluzzo cares for victims just as much as he did when he was a prosecutor fighting on their behalf, and he has the uncommon experience of helping victims that have just suffered terrible trauma navigate the complexities of the system and ultimately get justice and a sense of closure.

If you or a loved one have been the victim of rape or sexual assault and would like to speak to a qualified attorney about your rights, you should contact Matthew Galluzzo. To learn more about lawsuits for sexual assault victims, click the links below.

Mr. Galluzzo and his team at G&J are absolutely one of the best at what they do. The work tirelessly at getting the best possible result for the case at hand and they truly care about their clients. Galluzzo and his team were able to overturn and vacate my guilty plea, then taking a big risk where I could have faced a large amount of time in prison Galluzzo took my case to trial. He walked in there with the confidence and swagger as if he already knew everything would work out for me, he laid out every single fact and hole in the prosecutions case to the jury and came away with a full acquittal on every charge after just one hour of deliberations. In an instant, I had my life back! I would most certainly recommend Matthew and his team to anyone in need of legal help. Thanks again Matt! Client
★★★★★
Eric was a great asset to have on my side during a recent case. We had an initial phone discussion in which Eric talked about my specific situation, possible outcomes, and process. He was extremely knowledgeable, diligent and kept me up to speed throughout the ordeal. I would highly recommend Eric if you ever need an attorney in NYC. Client
