Domestic Violence Help

Seattle City Attorney's Office Domestic Violence Unit

The Domestic Violence Unit prosecutes city ordinance violations in Seattle Municipal Court, involving crimes of misdemeanor intimate partner domestic violence, elder abuse, and child abuse/neglect cases. Domestic violence transcends gender, age, ethnicity and sexual orientation. The Domestic Violence Unit provides support and resources for all domestic violence victims: women, men, children and the elderly.

The Domestic Violence Unit is composed of experienced prosecutors and victim advocates, as well as dedicated support staff. The unit is represented by people of various cultures, ethnic, and racial backgrounds. This also includes staff who speak Spanish, Vietnamese, and Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese dialects).

Domestic violence victim advocates work with victims of intimate partner violence, elder abuse, child abuse and family violence. All of the advocates work on teams with prosecutors to give victims the best possible assistance and representation in both arrest and non-arrest incidents of domestic violence and child abuse/neglect. To find out who your advocate is, call (206) 684-7757.
