The Office of Attorney General serves victims and witnesses in a variety of ways. Victim Witness & Assistance Division advocates are assigned to work with victims throughout the investigations and prosecutions we pursue. In criminal matters, we are mandated to inform victims of the rights afforded to them under the Victim Rights Law, M.G.L. c. 258B, and work to fulfill them. In all of our matters, we keep victims and witnesses informed about the case involving them and give them a voice in the process. We routinely assist victims and their families in accessing all available resources, both internally and externally, to meet their individual needs.
