Resources for Victims

PLEASE NOTE: The VRLC does not take walk-ins. All meetings with attorneys are by appointment only.

The Victim Rights Law Center is the first law center in the nation dedicated solely to advocating for the civil legal needs of sexual assault survivors. The VRLC provides direct legal representation to victims of rape and sexual assault throughout Massachusetts and in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties, Oregon

If you have been raped or sexually assaulted, we believe you have the right to make your own choices about how to respond to what has happened to you.  Our goal is to give sexual assault victims information regarding their civil legal needs to reclaim their lives.  Please review the VRLC's areas of expertise on the right hand side of the page.

The VRLC provides holistic civil legal services to sexual assault victims, particularly to traditionally underserved populations such as: male victims; youth and college-age victims; LGBTQ victims; victims with disabilities; low-income urban victims, including immigrants; and victims living in rural communities.
