Domestic Violence – Holistic Victim Advocacy
When someone you love uses physical violence, sexual or emotional abuse in the relationship it can be devastating and confusing. Survivors often need help advocating for their safety and both understanding and navigating through the family court system. They don’t always know who to turn to. Many attorneys focus on representing abusers. Fewer attorneys in private practice in the St. Louis area have extensive training or experience helping victims navigate through the family court system.
The Emery Law Firm offers holistic, client-centered legal representation for survivors of domestic violence in the St. Louis area. Attorney Jessica Emery has received well over 100 hours of specialized training in advocacy for survivors of Domestic Violence or Intimate Partner Violence, including working with LGBTQ survivors, and stalking victims. She has worked on numerous domestic violence cases around the St. Louis area including St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, and Jefferson County. Cases often include orders of protection, dissolution of marriage and custody cases. Jessica is well versed in the cycles of violence, the challenges victims face leaving their abusers (and sometimes for years to come), and the power and control issues that can make custody issues even more challenging. She represents her clients with care, compassion, non-judgment, and dedication.
