Representation and Advocacy

For Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence

Our Appellate Advocacy Program uses skilled staff and volunteer attorneys to provide representation for survivors in appeals when relief has been denied to them or when relief was granted but the perpetrator has filed an appeal. We handle appeals from many different types of cases that are related to intimate partner violence. These include appeals from protective orders and custody orders where intimate partner violence is an issue. Our goals are to keep survivors and their families safe and to shape the law to enhance justice for other survivors.

See below for application details and forms.
