At its Dec. 7 breakfast meeting, the Family Law Section had the pleasure of hearing a panel of four leaders who help ensure that victims of domestic violence get the legal help that they need to stay safe and break the cycle of violence. Honorable Judge Berryl A. Anderson, chief judge of the DeKalb County Magistrate Court, was the principal speaker. She was joined by Ayonna Johnson, director of legal services of the Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence, Toni Roberts, executive director of the DeKalb Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (DVLF), and Limia Obadi, domestic violence program manager of Tapestri. The panel discussed the TPO process in DeKalb County and what we all can and should be doing to end domestic violence.
