Two pro bono clients obtain legal and physical custody of their respective grandchildren
Clients Guardianship clients
Jones Day Silicon Valley successfully represented two pro bono clients in obtaining legal and physical custody of their respective grandchildren in San Mateo Superior Court before Judge Rosemary Pfeiffer. In both cases, the clients had been taking care of their grandchildren since birth at the request of the parents, who were unable to provide care and support. At the guardianship hearing in each case, Judge Pfeiffer determined that it would be in the best interest and welfare of the children to grant the petition for guardianship. These cases were referred to Jones Day by the Legal Aid of San Mateo County and screened by Stanford Law School students at the Stanford Community Law Clinic.
