1. We Can Speak on Your Behalf
For some victims, speaking up in court and/or at a sentencing hearing can be cathartic. For others, it is a terrifying, traumatizing experience. Both ways of reacting are understandable. If you fall on the side of feeling fearful or otherwise do not want to speak in these situations, we can speak on your behalf. We can also be there if you want to speak to help you through the process.
2. We Can Protect You Against the Defendant
