Comprehensive Issue Spotting:
A Tool for Civil Attorneys Representing
Victims of Domestic & Dating Violence,
Sexual Assault & Stalking
What Is is Tool?
is is a client-centered tool for civil attorneys new to representing victims of
domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking to provide comprehensive
representation and advocacy for their clients. is tool is not an intake sheet or a
broad referral list, but should be used in conjunction with those items to facilitate
eective and holistic client centered representation. is tool does not comprehensively
address the specic needs of tribal communities.
How To Use is Tool
To maximize its usefulness, complete the Referral sections of this tool before using
it with your clients. Completion of the referral sections requires individual attorneys
to develop relationships with other local service providers in order to facilitate eective
service delivery. Doing this well once will save time in the future!
Go through each topic heading with your clients. Each question under the dierent
headings is designed to allow the attorney and their clients to identify other areas that
their clients may need assistance with, even though it may be outside the scope of the
attorney’s area of representation and to encourage their clients to think about their
lives holistically. Once you have identied areas for which your clients need assistance
outside of your expertise, provide them with the knowledge and information to make
informed decisions regarding accessing additional resources.
Ethical Responsibilities in Making Referrals: When referring your clients for legal
services, please keep in mind your ethical duties and responsibilities. Many states have
specic guidance regarding lawyers providing referrals. For this reason, we encourage
you to refer clients to organizations rather than individuals.
Victim Privacy Note: Being a victim of a crime raises complex issues related to victim
privacy, condentiality and privilege. It is important for the attorney to understand the
intersection of these issues in order to properly inform clients about how to protect their
privacy and how to authorize any releases of private information. Similarly, clients need
assistance in understanding how to provide informed consent when releasing private
information in order to maintain control over their personal information.

Criminal Matters
II. Criminal Matters
A civil attorney representing victims of domestic violence or dating violence, sexual
assault or stalking needs to know if there is a concurrent criminal matter related to the
violence. A client may have reported the violence to the police but may not know what
the status of the case is – e.g., whether it is being investigated or whether the oender
has been formally charged with a crime. Or, the client may have already received a
subpoena to attend the trial as the complaining witness.
1. Did the client report the violence to law enforcement? ___________________
If yes, when? ___________________________________________________
If yes, does the client know what the status of the case is? _________________
______________________________________________________________
2. Does the client understand what their role is in the criminal process?
________________________________________________________________
3. Does the client understand that the criminal case is a separate
process from seeking and obtaining any civil legal remedies? ______________
________________________________________________________________
It is important for the client to understand the advocates from the prosecutors oce are
not in a condential relationship with the client – whereas advocates from community
based agencies are more likely to be able to oer clients condentiality.
4. Does the client have a victim advocate? _______________________________
________________________________________________________________
If so, who? _____________________________________________________
5. Does the client have concerns about privacy? ___________________________
________________________________________________________________
6. Has the client communicated with the prosecutor? ______________________

If yes, does the client understand that the prosecutor is not their
attorney and cannot protect their privacy? ____________________________

Sexual Assault
III. Sexual Assault
Many victims of domestic violence are also victims of sexual assault. It can be
very dicult for sexual assault victims to talk about sexual violence. Sensitivity is
imperative. Because sexual assault encompasses more than rape it is important to ask
these questions as broadly as possible.
1. Is the client safe? __________________________________________________
2. Has anyone forced or tricked the client into unwanted
sexual contact or sexual activities? ___________________________________
3. What is the client’s relationship with the oender, if any? _________________
4. Has the client sought medical attention as a result of the assault? ___________
Is the client concerned about becoming pregnant or contracting
a sexually transmitted infection due to the assault? ______________________
Does the client have medical bills or other income loss as
a result of the assault? ____________________________________________
5. Has the client received counseling since the assault? _____________________
Privacy issues are critical. If the client has received counseling since the assault it
is potentially discoverable information – thus possibly impacting the victims life in
many unforeseen and unintended ways.
6. Is the client having problems in school because of the assault? _____________
________________________________________________________________
7. Is the client having problems at work because of the assault? ______________
________________________________________________________________

prosecution of the assault? ________________________________________

Stalking
IV. Stalking
It is important for the attorney to be aware of stalking behavior. Many victims of
domestic and dating violence and sexual assault experience stalking behavior but may
not identify it as such. Nevertheless, it is a crime and there are also civil remedies in
many jurisdictions.
1. Has the oender committed two more acts that have placed the
client in fear for their safety or caused them emotional distress?____________
Has the oender followed the victim on more than one occasion? __________
Has the oender sent harassing phone, email or text messages
to the client? ___________________________________________________

in person, through technology, or through third parties? _________________

______________________________________________________________
______________________________________________________________

sensitive when asking these questions and to provide a context for why you are asking
them. e purpose of obtaining this information is to explore whether the client may
