Trauma-Informed Legal Advocacy: A Resource for Juvenile Defense Attorneys

"Defense attorneys play a crucial role in advancing trauma-informed client relationships, advocating for their client’s expressed interests, and achieving client success. Trauma-informed systems are structured with an understanding of the causes and effects of traumatic experiences and incor­porate practices that support recovery, resilience, and youth success. By enhancing the lawyer’s ability to recognize the im­pact of trauma and respond appropriately, while also avoiding legal practices that may re-traumatize youth and their families, trauma-informed legal representation can improve outcomes for juvenile clients.”
