The Superior Court of California, County of Humboldt, behind a line of Silent Witnesses. Each figure represents a Humboldt County resident who died because of intimate partner violence.

Appearing in court can be a scary experience. It can be an intimidating atmosphere that can make you feel victimized all over again. Our amazing advocates are available to stand by your side and support you during this difficult time.
