Crime Victims' Legal Assistance
Who are we?
We are a collaboration between Arizona Voice for Crime
Victims and the College of Law. The program is made up of students and volunteer
attorneys who represent crime victims pro bono during all proceedings.
What do we do?
The project renders legal advice and provides legal
assistance to victims in asserting their constitutional rights. Representation
may include: filing motions; arranging meetings with prosecutors regarding
charging decisions, presenting evidence at release hearings, providing legal
assistance regarding appropriate plea bargaining; assisting in presenting
evidence at sentencing and victim impact statements; restitution claims; and
victim's compensation claims.
Who is eligible?
Any victim of a violent crime who has not been charged
with a crime and is not in custody of any federal, municipal, county, or state
Who can make a referral?
Anyone can make a referral to the program. Only the
victim, however, will be seen by the program.
