Crime Victims' Legal Assistance Project

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 jail.

Who can make a referral?
    Anyone can make a referral to the program. Only the victim, however, will be seen by the program.

How do you contact us?
    The office is located at ASU College of Law in Tempe, and is staffed during business hours Monday through Friday, 9am to 4pm. The phone number is (480) 965-5640. Voice mail is available, and is checked daily. The office is closed on all major holidays.
