In times of crisis, Mosaic Georgia helps to take away the confusion of the criminal justice system through legal advocacy.

Our legal services provided by Mosaic Georgia’s on-staff attorney and legal team may assist with civil matters resulting from the assault. We understand the sensitive nature of these crimes and help to find alternative ways for victims to reach their goal of safety.

Our on-staff attorney and legal advocate help our clients understand their legal rights while connecting them with available community resources. We offer one-on-one meetings to discuss client’s needs and any safety concerns.

Our legal team is able to discuss immediate legal options with our clients, as well as other needs such as divorce, custody, Georgia Crime Victim’s Compensation Program, and other legal issues related to the sexual assault.
