Legal Aid for Survivors of Sexual Assault
LASSA attorneys provide sexual assault survivors with legal information and advice about legal issues that may arise following a sexual assault. Callers may remain anonymous, if they wish, and still receive information about crime victim’s rights, housing, employment, immigration, education and safety planning. Callers who are ready to pursue legal remedies may be asked for more information so they can receive case-specific legal advice and possible representation.
The LASSA hotline is answered by attorneys seven days a week. Please call 1-844-303-SAFE (7233)
