Jane Doe Advocacy Center is a legal service center for issues relating to sexual violence and public health. Through unique services and programs, Jane Doe brings the tools and resources of the legal system into the hands of individuals.
Throughout the course of our work, Jane Doe strives to ensure that individuals are empowered to claim justice, rebuild dignity, and experience a sense of compassion through the legal system.
Justice. Jane Doe is about claiming personal justice. From the first interaction, clients are presented with their legal options and are in control of all decisions. For some, a no-cost consultation in which they learn their legal options and decide not to pursue any legal action is sufficient. For others, it will involve creating one-of-a-kind documents, holding meetings, or filing civil lawsuits for sexual assault, child custody, and divorce or separation. The purpose of Jane Doe is to provide people with the legal assistance they need to make personal decisions and achieve their individual sense of justice, whatever that may be.
Dignity. Jane Doe believes that reaching out for help should not require anyone to sacrifice their personal dignity, regardless of their personal situation and needs. Each person’s story is dealt with in a patient and understanding manner. By providing specialized services, explaining legal processes clearly and thoroughly, and leaving important decisions in the hands of each individual, Jane Doe establishes a trusting, understanding relationship in which the client calls the shots. Jane Doe also reaches beyond the immediate interaction to ensure that each phone call, document, and court appearance represents a sense of knowledge, confidence, and individuality.
Compassion. Jane Doe does not use cookie-cutter methodology or make anyone feel as though they are a part of a statistic. Because no two people are the same, no two situations can be approached the same way. By using a client-centered approach, Jane Doe approaches each case as unique, important, and worthy. Clients can expect that they will be heard, their problems will be identified, and solutions will be crafted according to their individual goals. Services are carefully researched and developed to ensure that each person receives personalized attention.
