Victory for victim of domestic violence

Clients Client D

Jones Day, representing a victim of domestic violence, successfully obtained a permanent restraining order against her former boyfriend. The client, a single mother, had suffered years of physical and mental abuse by her boyfriend, and sought to extend a temporary restraining order granted to her in March after she suffered severe injuries from the latest abusive incident. The permanent (four-year) order was granted after a hearing in San Mateo County Superior Court. Armed with a permanent order, the client is now working to rebuild a life for herself and her daughter in San Mateo County.
