Everyone deserves to feel safe from threats and physical or sexual violence. Especially in their own home. Unfortunately, domestic violence is all too common.  Too often, its victims face prejudice and skepticism when they seek help from friends and relatives, police and courts.  

Attorney Sandy Lundy is humbled by the bravery of survivors of domestic violence. From her days as a student at Yale Law School to today, some 30 years later, Attorney Lundy has worked with survivors to secure their safety, and to educate the public about the public health crisis of partner abuse. She has trained police officers, doctors, public health officials, district attorneys, and judges about the dynamics of intimate partner abuse and about appropriate responses. Her articles on domestic violence have been cited by scholars, advocates, and law enforcement around the country and around the world.

If you feel unsafe in your own home and can safely find a way to contact Attorney Lundy to discuss your situation, she is ready and eager to help.
