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)
Emotional support throughout the legal process
Our advocates are not attorneys, but they are trained and highly skilled in providing legal information and resources.
