Peter Nestor, Jones Day Silicon Valley, was awarded the Legal Aid Association of California (LAAC) Pro Bono Family Law Attorney for 2011

March 2011

LAAC's Family Law Award is presented to family law advocates in recognition of their outstanding dedication and commitment to legal services for low-income Californians. This year, LAAC honored Peter Nestor as Pro Bono Family Law Attorney for 2011. The Silicon Valley office maintains a partnership with Bay Area Legal Aid to represent underprivileged victims of domestic violence. As part of this collaboration, Peter headed up a team of attorneys in the office to obtain a permanent restraining order and child support services for a victim of domestic violence who had suffered years of physical and mental abuse. The case went to trial and settled shortly after Jones Day's opening arguments. Armed with a permanent order, the client is now working to rebuild a life for herself and her daughter.
