About Us

The Seattle City Attorney's Office Domestic Violence Unit prosecutes City ordinance violations in Seattle Municipal Court, involving crimes of misdemeanor intimate partner domestic violence, elder abuse, and child abuse/neglect cases. The Domestic Violence Unit provides support and resources for all domestic violence victims: women, men, children and the elderly.

The Domestic Violence Unit is composed of experienced prosecutors and victim advocates, as well as dedicated support staff. The Unit is proud of its diversity and is represented by people of various cultures and ethnic/racial backgrounds. This also includes an advocate who speaks Vietnamese and Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese dialects).

Domestic Violence victim advocates work with victims of domestic violence, elder abuse, child abuse and neglect. All of the advocates work on teams with prosecutors to give victims the best possible assistance and representation in both arrest and non-arrest incidents of domestic violence, elder and child abuse/neglect.
