One of the most important services organizations can provide in helping to end domestic violence is to ensure that law practitioners understand what domestic violence is and areas of law it affects. Because domestic violence is a pattern of actions, legal professionals must be trained to scrutinize even seemingly benign activities. This program will equip lawyers practicing in all areas with the necessary tools to handle DV or to screen for domestic abuse and provide appropriate legal advice when domestic violence has been identified as an issue.

This grant is made possible by funding from the Texas Bar Foundation.

AVDA’s mission is to end family violence by advocating for the safety and
self-determination of victims, promoting accountability for abusers and
fostering a community response to abuse.
