For Legal Advocates

If you are a victim or survivor of domestic violence and sexual assault, you are not alone. To access local resources, including legal advocacy, please check out our list of member programs.

Legal advocacy is a vital piece of how we work toward safety and justice with victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. The core of legal advocacy is to help victims and survivors safely navigate the legal systems that they interact with and to provide resources and support as they deal with them.

Legal advocacy can include assistance and support with many aspects of the legal system, including protective orders, family law, criminal cases, and child-in-need-of-aid proceedings. Legal advocacy can involve accessing interpreters, learning and exercising legal rights, applying to victim assistance programs, and accompanying victims to court. Legal advocates are not attorneys and cannot provide legal advice, but legal advocates can often give referrals to attorney resources.

On our website, legal advocates can find links that can help in everyday advocacy and in broadening their expertise. There are also resources for our member and affiliate programs legal advocates which can be accessed using their log in information.

For our member programs, technical assistance, training, and resources are also available via our legal advocacy project. Legal advocates can contact Ariel Herman, Training Project Director, with questions and concerns.
