Johanna Rousseaux, Of Counsel, Jones Day



"I am very proud to be a part of Jones Day, which has committed countless resources and attorneys in recognition of the serious nature of this crisis and the positive impact that we can and will have on these children.  And the undertaking has a special personal significance for me -- I lived in Central America for many years and studied the conflicts that historically troubled the region.  I'm keenly aware of the structural roots of the problem that have led to a failure in the rule of law and a total lack of public security, where families fear they can no longer provide adequately for the safety and well being of their children." - Johanna Rousseaux

 As the number of unaccompanied children seeking safety in the United States increased over the Summer of 2014, Johanna Rousseaux and Jones Day stepped up to the plate to quickly lend a helping hand.  They continue to represent a number of Central American children facing deportation and are working on a pro bono basis to ensure that children who arrive at our border receive fair treatment under our laws.  Their help has been life changing for  these children, a number of whom are survivors of human trafficking or scaping brutal gang violence or other abuse in their homelands. We are extremely grateful for their help and support.
