Domestic violence law focuses on areas of family and partner abuse. Domestic violence lawyers spend their careers either in direct service helping clients affected by domestic violence or in policy helping write legislation and regulations that advocate on behalf of abused persons. Though domestic violence work has traditionally occurred in the U.S. legal system, a growing number of lawyers are focusing on preventing domestic violence around the world. DV lawyers typically work in nonprofit groups or in the government with the Department of Justice or state Attorney General's offices.
