Keisha Jones

Keisha Jones, a domestic violence survivor, already had secured a Civil Protection Order (CPO) against the father of her two young children when Legal Aid referred her to Kirkland & Ellis attorneys Michael Podberesky and Eric Nguyen. Ms. Jones sought a permanent custody order to provide her and her children safety and stability long after the one-year CPO expired. On the day the custody trial was scheduled, the Kirkland team was able to settle the case favorably for Ms. Jones, providing her with sole legal custody and primary physical custody of her children. The father has visitation with the children twice a week.
