Our Mission: To help families of homicide victims receive hope, justice, and healing.

Utah Homicide Survivors is Utah’s only pro-bono legal services entity for families of homicide victims in Utah. Utah Homicide Survivors provides holistic non-profit legal representation in the civil, probate and family courts.

While we strive to serve all families of homicide victims, we primarily represent families of domestic violence murder victims. The survivors of domestic violence murder victims, most often children, have been rendered “low income” due to the lack of control over the finances. Consequently, the families cannot find an attorney who will represent them without a large, upfront retainer. Often this situation compels families to choose between going in to debt and supporting themselves, their children and any surviving children of the victim because they do not have the funds to take legal action.
