At The Hunter Law Group, we encounter all kinds of family law situations, some of which involve domestic violence situations. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), one in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, and children who witness violence between their parents or caretakers are at the greatest risk of transmitting violent behavior from one generation to the next. Not only that but boys who witness domestic violence are twice as likely to abuse their own partners or children when they become adults. (NCADV)
As a family-oriented attorney who has something to offer local victims of domestic violence, our very own Daniel Hunter has begun donating his time once a month to Laura's House. Laura's House is a shelter for women and children who need a safe haven while breaking from their abusive relationship. Laura's House helps women and children from all walks of life. Attorney Daniel Hunter is glad to offer program participants free legal services by providing guidance on child custody matters, visitation, support, and divorce in order to help these women make the much needed changes and to assist them in obtaining valuable protection under California law.
Originally founded in 1994, since then Laura's House has provided shelter and support services to more than 3,488 battered women and children and counseling, life skills, education and legal assistance to more to an 40,305 persons. Without intervention and support programs, many domestic violence victims find it exceedingly difficult to break the cycle of violence they have learned to endure; therefore, Laura's House offers a crisis hotline for support; a variety of children's programs; legal services including a monthly legal clinic; an emergency shelter that provides support and case management for abused women and children; a transitional program and more.
By providing comprehensive domestic violence programs which includes quality legal services, the victims of domestic violence have access to the tools and resources they need to live healthy, independent and violence-free lives.
