Domestic Violence Assistance

The Etowah County District Attorney’s Office is committed to provide both direct and indirect services to victims of domestic violence.  We accomplish this mission by providing direct client services that include victim advocacy, case management, counseling, shelter and referrals to area resources.  We strive to provide education to the general public, school systems, local area agencies and civic groups about domestic violence and the impact it has on our community.  We will provide a coordinated response to domestic violence with law enforcement and the court system.
