Virginia: Crime Victims – a Lawyers Article

Trial is the monthly magazine of the American Association for Justice (“AAJ”) www.justice.org. Its December 2011 issue features an article on crime victims: “When Torts and Crimes Overlap”.

“When a civil suit involves a criminal act, the perpetrator’s prosecution can be an invaluable source of information,” highlight Trial’s crime victim coverage. “Building a good relationship with the prosecutor is the key to tapping into that resource and obtaining justice for the victim.” Id. at 19.
