Emily, Criminal Legal Advocate, and Holly, Case Manager - Tubman Chrysalis Center
Emily and Holly work for Tubman Chrysalis Center, a leader in domestic violence treatment and prevention. One of the many services Tubman offers is legal support and case management, including legal advocates like Emily and case managers like Holly. The criminal court process begins when a victim is referred to Tubman. Referrals are most commonly made through the police. Legal advocates also watch the court calendars looking for cases involving victims of domestic abuse. Following an incident, the police provide the incident report to Tubman so our advocates can understand what happened and what specific charges have been filed. After general information is gathered, an advocate will contact the client and explain what happens in criminal court, how a “no contact” order works, and how the advocate may be able to help.
