Organizational Website


  • Appellate Courts

Our main program ensures California domestic violence laws keep survivors and children safe, by: representing survivors in appeals for free; filing amicus (friend-of- the-court) briefs in cases of statewide importance; and requesting publication of unpublished cases to create binding legal precedent that benefits survivors statewide.

  • Legal Support

We provide free training, legal support and technical assistance to shelters, DV advocates, and attorneys representing survivors in trial court

  • Housing & Employment

We provide free on-call legal assistance and trainings to domestic violence advocates and attorneys representing survivors with employment and housing issues.
