Williams & Connolly associate Mary Beth Hickcox-Howard was featured in the Network for Victim Recovery of D.C.’s (NVRDC) February 2019 newsletter for obtaining a notable victory for her pro bono client, a young mother who had suffered severe abuse at the hands of her former partner. NVRDC and Mary Beth asked the court to extend a Civil Protection Order protecting the client and her child from her former partner. But the partner used the process to ask the court to order the child to visit his family. After an emotionally challenging trial, the court denied the partner’s request for a modification and granted Mary Beth’s request for an extension for a full twelve months.
