Prosecutor's New Organization Focuses On Crime Victims Easing Their Pain
That program, which is still in existence today, is called the Cooperative Restraining Order Clinic. The city-wide project helps domestic violence survivors in San Francisco obtain restraining orders to protect them against their abusers. The services are provided free of charge through pro bono services of local lawyers.

"My job, which is different than the prosecutor's job, will be to put the victim before everyone else," Clark said.•
