Victim Rights

Being the victim of a crime can be a traumatic, painful and expensive experience. The intrusion and violation often leaves victims and their families with feelings of anger and frustration.

Justice & Vindication

Victims look to the Criminal Justice System to provide them with justice and vindication. Most have never had any experience with the courts and, at the worst of times, find themselves suddenly thrust into an unfamiliar and complex system.
