"Our dedicated, experienced staff work hard to help clients fight for their rights in many different types of cases, such as housing (landlord/tenant, foreclosures, etc.); family law (domestic violence protective orders, child and spousal support, custody); consumer (debt collection, payday loans, etc.); unemployment benefits; and immigration issues (for victims of crime and domestic violence)."
The goal of the Victim/Witness Program is to reduce the trauma victims experience and help ensure that survivors receive fair and compassionate treatment while participating in the criminal justice system. Our program provides a wide variety of comprehensive services. We service survivors of rape, child sexual assault and abuse, malicious wounding, robbery, home invasions, domestic abuse, threats and intimidation, and surviving families of murder (and more).
Highly-trained advocates are available 24/7/365 to talk confidentially with anyone experiencing domestic violence, seeking resources or information, or questioning unhealthy aspects of their relationship.
