TYLA hosts night out for battered women

The Texas Young Lawyers Association hosted “Ladies Night Out” for the Bastrop battered women’s shelter on Monday evening. Women were treated to dinner and pampered by hair and make-up consultants. The women viewed TYLA’s Healing the Wounds video, which discusses what victims of domestic violence can expect when utilizing the courts. TYLA President C.E. Rhodes, President-elect Kristy Piazza Blanchard, and directors Dustin Howell and Sally Pretorius (pictured right) gave legal advice and answered questions on obtaining a protective order and filing a temporary restraining order. The goal of the program is to educate victims of family violence about their legal rights. For more information on TYLA or to view the video, visit
