EXCLUDED SERVICES

Court representation (talking to a judge) is not available through the program. However, some lawyers may be willing to enter into a representation agreement with you. If this is the case, there is a note in the partner lawyer’s profile.

 

ETHICS

Some lawyers represent or have represented in their practice persons accused of sexual violence. These lawyers will never simultaneously represent your interests and those of the person(s) who have committed sexual violence against you. Lawyers are professionals who are able to weigh up each case. That said, for the sake of transparency towards you, a note in their profile will be displayed if this is the case and we hope that you are comfortable with this state of affairs.
