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.
