Legal aftermath may seem daunting following violence or abuse. DCRC advocates inform, support, and accompany victims of violence throughout the criminal and civil justice system.
Legal Advocates are NOT attorneys, and therefore cannot provide legal advice or representation. Advocates may answer questions about what to expect, explain available options, and accompany survivors through criminal or civil process to ensure their rights are protected
Advocates refer survivors to other DCRC services, assist with safety planning, and connect survivors to other community agencies.
