Chester County Bar Association
The path to justice is a long and arduous one for crime victims. It starts with a traumatic event and can steer them through years of investigation, litigation and courtroom proceedings. While the criminal justice system sentences the perpetrator, it is often the civil justice system that helps the victim rebuild his or her life. In this presentation, former prosecutors will discuss the process of helping victims traverse both the criminal and civil system, the attorney roles of being intermediary and advocate, and a roadmap to civil recovery for crime victim. Originally a part of the CCBA Spring Bench Bar 2020.Expand summary
