Weston, Florida (PRWEB) September 30, 2009 -- Known for victim advocacy and high profile cases involving crime victims, personal injury and wrongful death, the Law Offices of Jason Turchin today announced that a member of its practice, Nefra MacDonald, has received state certification as a Victim Service Practitioner.
"Nefra's training and ability as a victim advocate further promotes the firm's goal of pursuing justice with compassion for our clients," said attorney Jason Turchin.
Certified Victim Advocates traditionally serve the public sector through local and county police departments and State Attorneys' Offices, but are not commonly found in private law practices.
"We want to stay far away from the 'ambulance-chasing' stigma some people still attach to the personal injury field and focus more on victim's rights. When someone is injured or killed as a result of another's negligence, these people are victims. We should treat them as such," Turchin added.
"We need to fight for answers and just compensation, and try to empathize with our clients. They didn't ask to be in the unfortunate situation. The least we can do is care."
The Law Offices of Jason Turchin limits its practice to representing victims of accidents, personal injury, crime and wrongful death. Jason Turchin has handled over 4,000 cases and serves as a subject matter expert in these practice areas to the media. His main office is in Weston, Florida, with satellite offices in Miami, Key West, Orlando, Washington, DC and New York.
