Laurel House recognizes the lack of availability of affordable civil legal representation in our community. The legal system is complex and can be especially challenging to an unrepresented victim or survivor of domestic violence. The Laurel House Legal Project provides victims of domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking with civil legal representation free of charge. Services provided included assistance with seeking Protection From Abuse (PFA) orders, custody and support judgments, and general legal consultation for issues related to domestic violence.
The Laurel House legal team consists of a staff attorney and paralegal. They help provide the necessary tools and resources to increase physical safety and economic stability for our clients and their children. To be referred to these services, please contact your Laurel House advocate or counselor.
