If You Need Help

Stop Abuse for Everyone (SAFE) is a volunteer organization, without a paid staff to respond to requests for assistance in individual cases.

If you are in need of emergency assistance in a domestic violence situation, dial 911.  If you need help finding non-emergency services, check our National Resources Directory.  If there aren't any services near you, contact your local domestic violence service provider, the Domestic Violence Hotline, or the Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women.

unnamedDavid T. Pisarra, Esq - Los Angeles
 
David T. Pisarra is a multi-talented, mixed media professional. He is a Family Law Attorney specializing in Men’s and Father’s rights who hosts the Men’s Family Law Podcast, writes a weekly opinion column for the Santa Monica Daily Press, and contributes to The GoodMenProject.com and MensEnews.com websites.

He is an internationally sought after speaker on Men’s Rights, Personal Performance, and Leadership Lessons From The Law. His presentations to audiences from California to Virginia and as far south as Mexico have garnered high praise for their entertainment and educational value.

He is the author of four books, three for men: A Man’s Guide To Divorce Strategy, A Man’s Guide to Child CustodyA Man’s Guide to Domestic Violence; and the internationally recognized What About Wally? Co-Parenting A Pet With An Ex.

He is The Lawyer’s Lawyer. His trainings for other lawyers across the nation with Thomson/Reuters have been on topics as diverse as Family Law For Men, International Child Custody, Domestic Violence, and Podcasting for Professionals.

There are many speakers on leadership, but few are able to ground their talks from lessons learned in the trenches of the courts, and the battlefields of business – David Pisarra has the experience and the ability to motivate not just from the top down, but from the bottom up. As an entrepreneur he has built companies, and fixed ones that were in trouble.

He worked his way through law school going into companies that were in distress and quickly managed to find ways to cut costs, motivate the staff, and, build and implement a publicity plan for new client development. As an entrepreneur himself he has built a medical diagnostic company, a law practice and a multi-media publishing company.

Stop Abuse For Everyone announced today that it will allow its abuse brochures to be freely downloaded via the SAFE website.

President Jade Rubick explained: "We decided the best way to get the word out for underserved victims of domestic violence was to make these quality brochures freely available via our website. We give any visitor to our website a license to download the brochures and print them out, so they can be freely available across the country and throughout the world where it is needed most.

We encourage individuals to print them out and put them in public spaces, after consulting with the organizations involved, so that everyone who is in abusive relationships can find the help they are looking for."

The Stop Abuse For Everyone brochures are available via:

DEAR ABBY: I know most of your readers are women, but could you please spread awareness of female-on-male domestic violence? You have done a great job with male-on-female abuse awareness, and I think American society is fairly well saturated with it. But there is little out there for men who have been or are being abused. — Minnesota reader

DEAR READER: Domestic violence is not restricted to any social, racial, religious, economic group or particular gender. And while male victims may be embarrassed to disclose it, men can be victims of domestic violence, too.

In years past, men were hesitant to call a domestic abuse hotline when there was a crisis because they were ashamed, had been bullied into thinking they “deserved it,” or were afraid they wouldn’t be believed. That is no longer the case.

Male victims of domestic violence can find help by contacting the Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women. The organization’s toll-free helpline is (888) 743-5754 or log onto its Web site at www.dahmw.org. Another organization, SAFE (Stop Abuse for Everyone), also assists victims of abuse regardless of age, gender or sexual orientation. Its Web site is www.safe4all.org.
