What Are My Rights as a Crime Victim in Philadelphia?
The criminal justice system considers the needs and rights of victims throughout every stage of the process when trying a defendant for violent or property crimes. Victims are encouraged to exercise their rights and voice their opinions during criminal proceedings when the defendant is being investigated and prosecuted for a crime. Victims have a right to:
- Receive informed information on the case and on how the justice system operates
- Receive progress updates from the time of arrest through investigation and sentencing
- Share a victim impact statement and offer opinions on decisions that impact them directly
- Obtain a restitution order
- Maintain reasonable security and privacy and have related accommodations provided to protect victims from intimidation or harmful retaliation
An attorney with Liberty Law Team will answer questions, arm you with information and helpful resources, and provide referral sources.
As victim advocates, our injury attorneys promise to uphold your rights and protect you from the accused offender, provide timely notice of release or escape of the accused, ensure your voice is heard in proceedings, pursue timely restitution, avoid delays, and treat you with fairness and respect throughout the process.
You have the right to be informed at every step with accurate and prompt information and to seek compensation and justice for your injuries, pain, suffering, and losses. Contact Liberty Law Team today to discuss a plan for your case: 215-732-3474.

Why Do I Need Protection?
Crimes where the defendant causes serious physical or mental harm through sexual abuse or violence can put victims in a more vulnerable, at-risk situation for further trauma, threats, stalking, and additional injuries.
As a crime victim or witness to a crime, protection is a necessary precaution to prevent danger and further harm throughout the trial and afterward, especially if bail, parole, or probation are possible. This applies when you file a complaint, during proceedings when the defendant is convicted, and after the trial is over.
When you choose an attorney from the Liberty Law Team as your dedicated and reliable representative, we will provide:
- Support for any mental or physical obstacles related to testifying against the guilty person
- Protective measures before, during, and after trial for at-risk victims and witnesses
- Court procedures to ensure the witness’ safety while testifying
- A witness protection program, in serious cases
As a victim of crime, you have access to resources beyond local law enforcement officials and victims’ rights attorneys with the Liberty Law Team. The city of Philadelphia also supports victims of violence and other crimes with local resources, community organizations, and officials that offer services specific to the stages and phases a victim might go through following a crime. These services might include advocacy, counseling, mental health treatment, and financial assistance.
