Legal Advocacy

Our Legal Advocacy Team provides legal information, options counseling and safety planning to victims. While the program focuses on assistance with restraining orders and crime victim compensation, we also provide assistance with filing paperwork in family law, housing law and support for victims at criminal hearings related to their abuse. The Legal Advocacy Team does not provide legal advice, but can help victims identify attorneys that have knowledge and experience working with victims of violence.
