She & Her Children Are Finally Safe

“I am very thankful for the help and great advice from attorney Andrew Thompson.” – Ms. Carson

Ms. Carson’s boyfriend abused her throughout their entire relationship. He punched her, kicked her, and slammed her against a wall. She ended things between them while pregnant with his child, but she allowed him to see the child after giving birth. She immediately regretted this decision when he tried to harm the infant. No matter what Ms. Carson tried, her ex wouldn’t stop calling her and showing up unexpectedly at her home. 

Volunteer attorney Andrew Thompson represented Ms. Carson in court. With Andrew’s help, she received a six-month protective order. Because of his hard work, she feels like she’s gained safety for her and her children. Thank you for your support for survivors, Andrew.
