In criminal court, WIN Legal Advocates assist victims as they go through different court proceedings, explaining court procedures and informing them about the progress of their case. The Legal Advocates can also assist victims through the criminal process by accompanying them to the Police Department and/or District Attorney's Office.



In addition to criminal court accompaniment, Legal Advocates are also available to assist victims of abuse in completing a Protection from Abuse Order, or PFA. The advocates work through the PFA questionnaire with the victims, assist them in scheduling an appointment with the attorney to complete the PFA paperwork, and advocate for them through the civil proceeding in PFA court.
