Fighter Law Representing Domestic Violence Victim, Kristin Evans, Attacked by Ex-NFL player Zac Stacy
Fighter Law has always proudly advocated for survivors of domestic and sexual violence, and while this case has reached the national stage this instance is no different. We are proud to represent Kristin Evans in the case of State of Florida v. Zackary Stacy.
Our primary goal in this case is to provide Ms. Evans with justice and peace of mind. Under Marsy’s Law victims of a crime have the right to be heard during the trial proceedings and to have a voice in the court. These victims and their families are entitled to due process; to be free of harassment and abuse; protection from the accused; and the right to be treated with fairness and respect.
“I am grateful for the outpouring of support from our community and other victims of domestic violence from all over the world. I never wanted to be (or ever thought I would be) in this situation. I know none of us ever do. But I want to make sure that all other victims know they have voices, they have rights and I’m going to fight for them to be heard.” – Kristin Evans
Ms. Evans is not seeking fame or compensation but is utilizing her situation to call awareness to the issue of domestic violence, and to provide justice for her and her family.
