VICTIM LAW PRACTICE
As a victim of crime, you have rights in both the criminal and civil courts. It is important re victims become aware of these rights as early as practically possible to protect them. Stephanie Morris is a fierce victim’s advocate who helps victims re-build their lives by protecting victims rights and fighting for indemnification, accountability, apologies, and answers for many victims.
Civil claims give victims control and provide another opportunity for justice outside the criminal justice arena. Many times victims can recover from financial losses not coverable under criminal restitution. Even if the offender is not convicted of the crime, the victim may have a civil remedy available (think O.J. Simpson). Civil claims also act as a deterrence if offenders know they will be held financially liable for their criminal acts or failures to protect others from criminal acts.
As a victim of crime you have rights in the criminal case that must be protected by the court. As a victim you have a right to be heard, to be present at all proceedings, to be informed about the process and investigation, a right to recover from your losses, and many more rights.
As a victim of crime you may be suffering from physical injury, mental health issues, financial loss or all of the above. You may be able to recover from your losses by filing a civil claim.
Stephanie Morris will work to create a plan of action for your particular situation to protect you and to seek the justice you deserve. If you or someone you know has suffered from physical or emotional harm, property damage, or economic loss due to a crime, give us a call!
