Does Compassionate Counsel represent individuals charged in criminal matters?
No. The United States Constitution calls for the appointment of an attorney for those charged with a crime if the defendant is unable to pay for one. Therefore, Compassionate Counsel does not handle these types of cases.
Does Compassionate Counsel represent individuals in juvenile court cases?
It depends. Cases involving the custodial placement of children and termination of parental rights may receive court appointed lawyers if the litigant is unable to pay for an attorney, so these matters are reviewed and considered on a case by case basis.
Does Compassionate Counsel represent individuals in divorce cases?
Typically, no. Only in certain Biblically supported and extremely limited cases does Compassionate Counsel get involved in divorce proceedings. These, too, are reviewed and considered on a case by case basis.
