Legal Advocacy

We provide legal services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. We provide two types of orders: 1) A Domestic Violence Protection Act (DVPA) which is usually provided when intimate partners are involved and child custody can be included; and 2) A Temporary Restraining Order (TRO). The Civil request is used for victims of Sexual Assault or in Stalking cases. We prepare all documents and file them through Superior Court and thoroughly go over a strong safety plan. We also assist victims throughout the criminal process providing accompaniment with court hearings and advocating with law enforcement and the district attorney office.
