About the Firm

Seeking and Securing Justice for Survivors

We are a woman-owned law firm specializing in seeking justice for survivors of sexual abuse, exploitation, and trafficking. After over two decades serving as federal prosecutors and litigators, Ami and Vanessa saw the need for a firm solely dedicated to helping survivors of sex crimes. Advocates for Survivors of Abuse fills that need. We provide legal representation before, during, and after investigation and prosecution of the offenders. With experience in both federal and state court and in both civil and criminal practice, we are uniquely positioned to help survivors secure the restitution and compensation to which they are entitled.

In addition to legal advocacy, we aim to help our clients have a voice in the judicial system, seek resources tailored to their needs, and empower survivors in overcoming their trauma. Your voice always matters most to us. We work with adults and minors (with the agreement of a parent), and we welcome all without regard for religion, race, gender, or sexual orientation. We know how to listen to survivors so we can shape litigation to meet your goals. We are compassionate — yet fierce — in our advocacy.
