Description

ODVN trauma-informed family law attorneys specialize in helping clients who have experienced trauma, navigate legal proceedings related to family matters, such as divorce, child custody, and domestic violence. They approach their work with an understanding of the impact trauma can have on individuals and families, and they strive to create a safe and supportive environment for their clients. This may involve providing resources for therapy or counseling, advocating for trauma-sensitive practices in court proceedings, and being sensitive to triggers or emotional reactions during legal consultations. The attorney works to empower their clients and help them achieve fair and just outcomes while minimizing further trauma.

Responsibilities:

Provide comprehensive legal representation to survivors of domestic violence in family law matters, including but not limited to divorce, child custody, child support, protective orders, and paternity cases.

Utilize trauma-informed principles and practices when working with survivors, recognizing the impact of trauma on their experiences and decision-making processes.

Advocate for the legal rights and best interests of survivors, ensuring their voices are heard and their needs are addressed within the legal system.

Manage a caseload of family law cases, maintaining accurate and up-to-date case files, documentation, and court appearances. Case load depends on the number the contractor can reasonably provide. 

Collaborate with interdisciplinary teams, including social workers, therapists, advocates, and other legal professionals, to provide holistic support to survivors.

Stay informed about developments in family law, trauma-informed practices, and relevant legal issues through ongoing training and professional development.



Requirements

Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from an accredited law school.

Admission to the state bar and in good standing.

Demonstrated knowledge of trauma-informed principles and their application in legal settings.

Strong advocacy and negotiation skills, with the ability to effectively represent clients in court proceedings.
