The Crime Victims Attorney Project (CVAP) is funded through subcontracts with victim service provider partners who receive funding through New York State’s Office of Victim Services (OVS) to provide easily accessible, high quality, coordinated, victim-sensitive, trauma-informed civil legal services to victims of crime in Warren, Washington, Saratoga, Fulton, Montgomery and St. Lawrence Counties regardless of their income. While priority may be given to lower income victims, as long as resources permit, no means prioritization is used. This project responds specifically to the need for attorney services coordinated with crime victim services available to victims in the local communities served by this project. The CVAP specifically supports and assists victims as they access available victim compensation and fully utilize their rights under New York’s Crime Victims Law and provides skilled and empathetic representation in orders of protection, custody, child support,matrimonial, and other legal matters. The CVAP serves victims of crime through in-person and phone direct legal assistance, including in-court representation and advocacy related to civil and criminal proceedings.
