VICTIMS AND WITNESS

The criminal justice system can be a frightening place for victims and witnesses. The prosecutor's "victims' advocates" often advocate what the prosecutor wants instead of what the victim or witness wants.

Knowledge is power. Understanding takes away fear.

I can explain the system, how it works, how the various players (prosecutor, defense lawyer, judge) perceive the case, and what your role is. The law can require a victim or witness to testify, but there sometimes are ways to avoid testifying. Victims have a right to be informed and to be heard on issues of plea agreements and sentencing. I can help you make sure your voice and wishes are heard in the strongest way possible.
