What is a Network Referral Partner?

Referral Partners are organizations that have agreed – through a MOU with the NY Crime Victims Legal Network or through a contract with the NYS Office of Victim Services – to offer an additional mechanism through which a crime victim user of NY Crime Victims Legal Help can access legal services. These “warm referral mechanisms” are designed to make it easier for a crime victim to connect with the civil legal help they need.

Recipients of the June 2018 OVS Attorney Services award are expected to be referral partners. Recipients of the Attorney Services award are also listed in the Legal Help Directory with a "Try This First" tag. It means that they have a designated attorney who can handle the specific legal issue selected in the search function, in the specific county selected.

Other civil legal organizations may become a referral partner.
