THE LACROIX LAW FIRM
ATTORNEY STACY LACROIX
A Legal Advocate
As an attorney, I take my professional duties very seriously when it comes to advocating for DC and Maryland residents.
As a law student, I created the Sexual & Domestic Violence Law Student Organization (SDVL), the first of its kind in San Diego. I wanted to bring the issue of gender-based violence front and center so that other law students could learn how to advocate for victims once they became attorneys.
As President of SDVL, I learned that these issues were even impacting the very classmates I attended law school with each day. Many of them thanked me privately for bringing these issues to light because they were uncomfortable sharing their stories. Sexual & Domestic Violence impacts every age, gender, sexual orientation, race, income, and social level.
I have dedicated my career to finding all available means of helping victims of Sexual & Domestic Violence get their lives back from their abusers.
During law school, Stacy Lacroix was approved by the State of California as a Certified Legal Intern to represent clients in court for The Office of the Public Defender and The City Attorney's Office. She also worked as an intern at The California Innocence Project where she had the opportunity to be trained by wonderful attorneys who work tirelessly to free wrongly convicted persons. Stacy also received the Wiley W. Manuel Award for her dedication to providing pro bono legal services.
After law school, Stacy wanted to become better skilled in trial litigation, legislation, and public policy advocacy for victims, so she relocated to D.C and enrolled in law school for a second time at American University WCL, and earned an LL.M in Law and Government and Trial Advocacy. While enrolled she had the opportunity to clerk at the D.C Public Defender Service. She also worked on the "Project to End Child Marriage" at the International Centre for Missing & Endangered Children in Alexandria, Virginia.
In addition to her law practice, Stacy currently volunteers with several non-profit organizations in D.C and MD that provide legal representation to victims of Sexual & Domestic Violence including Unchained At Last, DCVLP (DC Volunteer Lawyers Program, MVLS (MD Volunteer Legal Service, NVRDC (Network For Victim Recovery DC), and others.
