Legal Advocacy

FRIENDS, Inc. utilizes a Legal Advocate to ensure individuals affected by Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault are afforded all of their legal protections.

The Legal Advocate offers immediate crisis advocacy at Charging Conferences for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, assists clients in navigating the legal system, provides assistance in receiving a temporary restraining order and then provides service representation to help victims receive an injunction. In addition, the Legal Advocate can provide assistance with general family law questions and forms and provide referrals to other legal resources if necessary.

The Legal Advocate is available by appointment only. Please contact our crisis line to ensure your individual legal needs can be addressed.

All services are offered confidentially and free of charge.
