Introductory Profile: About Erin Martinson

I interviewed a family friend, Erin Martinson, about domestic abuse, sexual assault, and stalking. Erin is my parents best friend, and my family and I spend a lot of time with her. Erin is a lawyer that represents victims of domestic violence. Her office is in Austin but she represents and goes to court all around Texas.

During the interview we talked about how she represents victims of domestic violence all over the state. We talked about what the victim should do if they are in a controlling relationship, along with why many women return to their abusers. We briefed how to act as a woman in this time and how to avoid becoming a victim. At the end we discussed sexual assault and how it can affect the victim. The interview went pretty well with a slight disturbance of my dog barking.
