Additional information

We assist survivors as they navigate the civil and criminal legal systems, including campus processes. Our lawyers and advocates also assist with ongoing harassment or stalking. They advocate for survivors’ privacy and safety in every aspect of their life. We also offer referrals to attorneys who have experience with sexual assault cases.
