Victims of crime often find themselves involved in a myriad of legal matter through no choice or fault of their own.  Often, victims of crime may be part of a criminal case, multiple civil cases, and other legal proceedings all related to their victimization.

 

In this session, we will discuss considerations for attorneys who are working with victims of crime, including ensuring you know what other legal matters are pending, communication with other legal providers, protection of victim privacy and safety interests, managing potential conflicts of interests. 

 

Colorado Rules of Professional conduct 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.6, 1.7, and 1.8 will be addressed during this session, as well as best practice tips for helping clients navigate complex legal needs.
