Legal Advocacy and Representation Program

ATASK’s Legal Advocacy and Representation Program bridges the gap between the legal system and domestic violence and intimate partner trafficking victims of Asian heritage who do not have meaningful access to justice. We provide holistic legal services in a safe, compassionate environment while prioritizing Asian survivors’ cultural and linguistic needs.

With offices in Boston and Lowell, our managing attorney and legal staff collaborate as a multi-disciplinary team with ATASK Case Managers to deliver high-quality comprehensive and strategic legal services that complement our Asian clients’ shelter, family stabilization, income-maintenance and safety-planning strategies.
