Linda A. Seabrook began her professional work on behalf of crime victims as a Family Violence Victim-Witness Coordinator with the Dubuque County Attorney's Office where she created the first multidisciplinary response team for domestic violence incidents in the State of Iowa. Prior to attending law school, Ms. Seabrook was Project Director for Victim Services for the National Center for Victims of Crime in Washington, DC. Linda began her legal career as an Assistant Solicitor in Charleston, SC, where she was the lead prosecutor for intimate partner offenses and enjoyed a 100% conviction rate at trial. During her tenure, she was featured in the Post & Courier and USA Today for a prosecution initiative she created to charge an additional charge of unlawful conduct toward a child when abusers perpetrated an act of domestic violence in close proximity to their children. Due to her impressive trial record, Ms. Seabrook was recruited to join Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, a national top-tier labor and employment law firm where she focused on employment discrimination and sexual harassment cases, and occupational safety and health law. In 2010, Linda joined the U.S. Department of Justice serving as the subject matter expert for the Department on all statutes, regulations and policies relating to victims of federal criminal offenses. In November of 2015, Ms. Seabrook joined Futures Without Violence as General Counsel where she leads a number of programs aimed at reducing violence against women and children.
