18.7 million Americans are directly harmed by crime each year, and each crime affects many more family members, friends, neighbors, and co-workers, leaving a lasting physical, emotional, or financial impact on people of all ages and abilities. It is with the assistance of these family members, friends, neighbors and victim advocates that survivors of violent crime can journey down the road to recovery.

In 1981, President Reagan assembled a task force to understand the state of crime victims' rights in the United States. The President's Task Force issued its findings in December 1982, reporting that:

"Victims have discovered that they are treated as appendages of a system appallingly out of balance. They have learned that somewhere along the way, the system has lost tract of the simple truth that it is supposed to be fair and to protect those who obey the law while punishing those who break it. Somewhere along the way, the system began to serve lawyers and judges and defendants, treating the victim with institutionalized disinterest." Ever since 1982, The Office for Victims of Crime in conjunction with victim advocates and survivors of crime have recognized the last week in April as National Crime Victims Rights Week in an effort to improve the "institutionalized disinterest" of which the Task Force reported.

It is during the 32nd recognition of Crime Victims' Rights Week (April 21-27th, 2013), that the law firm of Soloff & Zervanos is joining with the Office for Victims of Crime, The National Center for Victims of Crime, and all victim service providers, and concerned citizens throughout America to raise awareness of victims' rights and observe National Crime Victims' Rights Week. Also this week Soloff & Zervanos is announcing the launch of and this blog which will contain information, news and resources helpful to crime victims in seeking to obtain justice in the criminal and civil justice systems. It takes a team to help courageous victims of violent crimes in rebuilding their lives.
