On April 7, 2014 the County of Los Angeles honored two of LACBA DVP volunteers for their dedication to providing services to domestic violence victims in Los Angeles County. The awards were presented at a luncheon held at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, which was attended by county dignitaries including the LA County Board of Supervisors.
Jennifer Bonneville, of counsel with Steptoe & Johnson LLP, has been a volunteer with the DVP since 2009, and has generously given her time to assist those in domestic violence situations. Jennifer states “the time I spend at the Domestic Violence Project is my chance to make a difference to an individual. This is not only a huge responsibility, but a chance to empower them so that they are no longer victims.”
Kendra Thomas, a certified family law specialist, has been volunteering with the Project since 2010. Assisting in the DVP clinic, and also representing clients at their hearings, Kendra has donated hundreds of hours working with victims of domestic violence. Kendra states “She is excited about helping people achieve justice because she believes that no one should have to live in fear.”
Thank you to both Jennifer and Kendra for their time and dedication. LACBA’s DVP is in its 28th year of providing legal services to victims of violence in both the Central and Northeast districts of Los Angeles County. Without volunteers like them, LACBA DVP would not be able to assist the thousands of victims it sees each year.
