Legal Advocacy Program

Legal Advocacy Services for Survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking

Family Tree’s Legal Advocacy Program helps increase immediate and long-term safety for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking by providing civil and criminal legal advocacy, crisis intervention, and information and referrals.

Court accompaniments are only available to Jefferson County residents; however all Metro Denver residents can attend our legal clinics for divorce, custody, and protection orders as well as our Spanish legal clinic.

Family Tree Legal Advocates are taking in person or walk in appointments at PorchLight Family Justice Center, as well as video call appointments. You can request a video appointment (done through Zoom application) to speak with an advocate by emailing us at Once we receive an email request for an appointment, our staff will reach out to you and schedule that video appointment.
