Rocky Mountain Victim Law Center (RMvlc) is a non-profit law firm that provides victims of crime in Colorado with a more meaningful and positive interaction with the legal system. RMvlc has three legal service programs; 1) Victim Rights Legal Services (VRLS), 2) the Legal Information Network of Colorado (LINC) and, 3) the Title IX Program.
Through the VRLS program, RMvlc represents victims of crime in criminal cases to ensure their rights are upheld under the Colorado Victim Rights Act. Victims seek out RMvlc to help them navigate through the complexities and potential pitfalls of the criminal justice system, to provide independent legal advice, and to protect their privacy rights. Victims of violence deserve the same support, rights, and representation that defendants receive in the criminal justice system. It is our mission to increase legal options for those victims.
The LINC program at RMvlc is a collaborative network that provides comprehensive legal information services to crime victims in Colorado. LINC provides wraparound legal services to victims of crime to address the myriad of victimization-related legal issues, such as protection orders, eviction defense, family law cases, and general civil issues. LINC provides legal information, limited legal advice, limited direct representation, and connects eligible victims of crime to contract attorneys who provide additional representation.
The Title IX program at RMvlc provides support and representation for victims who are seeking the enforcement of their rights under Title IX in educational settings, including K-12 and higher education. Title IX staff advocate for the implementation of safety measures, accommodations, and other remedies in school, and accompany victims during school-based administrative procedures.
RMvlc also provides technical assistance and training to service providers on victim legal issues and providing victim-centered and trauma-informed services and participates in collaborative efforts to improve the landscape of victim legal rights and services in Colorado.
