Domestic violence may present a tough challenge to overcome, but Judge Jeanine Pirro is leading the charge to help those affected by providing a link to options and resources available on the course to reclaiming a better life.

The former Westchester County, NY district attorney has partnered with the National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH )and utilized her popular television show, “Judge Pirro,” and web site (www.judgejp.com),  in an effort to let male and female victims that “there is hope and there is help.”  The NDVH is a national non-profit organization that provides crisis intervention, information and referral to victims of domestic violence, perpetrators, friends and families.

“When women make the decision that they realize that they need help, the most important thing they can have is information. Especially if they make a decision to leave, that can be the most dangerous time,” the NDVH celebrity board member explained to EUR’s Lee Bailey. “What we’re trying to do, through both my show and as well as through speeches around the country, is tell women out there that there is help and it’s just a phone call away.”

Pirro’s work with the NDVH is the latest development in a longstanding crusade that started during her days as a prosecutor who is credited with starting the nation’s first domestic violence unit in 1978. Bringing the issue to light presented a new challenge for the Emmy-nominated TV court judge as claims of domestic violence received a doubtful reception among lawmakers.
