Integrating all matters in one day means that each matter might have its own set of
attorneys. Thus, the victim and the offender may have attorneys (and possibly a victim
advocate) for the criminal charge and a different set of attorneys such as a public defender
or a private attorney for the civil matters. Does this inhibit the processing of criminal
. Can general jurisdiction criminal courts be realistically improved to offer many of the
same advantages in terms of expeditious case handling and ensuring offender
accountability that are offered (at least in theory) by special purpose domestic violence
courts but at a lower cost given limited judicial resources?
