Guidance and support
Our legal advocates help survivors gain a better understanding of the criminal and civil legal process. We also can advocate on a client’s behalf with the police, prosecutor’s office and probation officers.
LACASA’s legal advocates provide a variety of services to survivors of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault, including:
- Explanation of victim’s rights
- Assistance with Personal Protection Orders (PPO)
- Court accompaniment
- Emotional support throughout the legal process
Our advocates are not attorneys, but they are trained and highly skilled in providing legal information and resources.
