Advocacy

Navigating legal issues after the death of a loved one can be daunting and complex. HSI’s victim advocates can help. We can inform you about our partnerships with various attorneys who can provide sound legal advice. If a criminal prosecution occurs, we have Crime Victim Advocates ready to assist survivors throughout the process.

Criminal Case Advocacy

Attending court can be overwhelming. HSI advocates are available to attend court hearings with survivors and to serve as a liaison between the family, the assigned prosecutor, and assigned victim advocate with the County Attorney’s Office. Our advocates are an additional resource of emotional support and can continue to support you if/once a case is sentenced.
