Finding your way through the legal system can be confusing and scary. Legal issues often affect different parts of your life such as your housing, job, school—even getting back your belongings after the crime.

The system is set up to make you feel small and powerless. People might try to take advantage of your situation or push you into choices that aren’t right for you.

We help you understand your rights and options, speak up for yourself, and navigate through your legal issues. Our services are free.

You might also be worried about immigration problems and what might happen to your immigration status if you’ve been part of a crime, even if you were the victim.
