LSNF is dedicated to helping victims of domestic and sexual violence obtain access to justice and ensure they regain their sense of safety and security in their own homes.
LSNF provides service to adult and child victims of abuse, sexual assault, stalking and human trafficking. Our primary focus is securing orders of protection and safety planning. Other services may include divorces, child custody, and housing. LSNF may assist victims with other legal matters related to victimization. We work closely with state and federal prosecutors, law enforcement agencies and victim advocates.
It is our mission to help families rebuild their lives and become self-sustaining, contributing citizens in our communities. LSNF also strives to provide holistic services to clients that address not only their legal needs,and collaborates with social services and case management providers to address broader client needs. Our volunteer and staff lawyers may provide counsel, advice or full representation to clients for orders of protection and divorces. Many times our lawyers will identify other legal issues where we may provide assistance such as public benefits, housing, or consumer. Each case is reviewed on its own legal merits for case acceptance.
