BWJP Welcomes Diana Griffin, as the new Attorney Advisor, the National Legal Center on Children and Domestic Violence.

Diana earned her Juris Doctor from the University of Maryland. She spent her career, prior to joining BWJP, representing victim-survivors in family court and immigration matters. Diana is passionate about helping create systematic change to better help victim-survivors and their families.  

“We are thrilled to welcome Diana to our team at BWJP. Diana’s extensive experience and dedication to improving the family court system and her vision for helping those affected by gender-based violence align perfectly with our mission. We look forward to her contributions in advancing justice and support for families across the nation.” - Amy J. Sánchez, CEO BWJP

Meet Diana:

Q: What brought you into the field of gender-based violence?

I always wanted to work in the public interest sector and obtained a job out of law school that focused on family court and assisting persons who experienced gender-based violence. I quickly became passionate about helping victim-survivors navigate the family court system.

Q: What drew you to BWJP?

Working in direct client representation exposed me to the daily challenges litigants face that act as a barrier to justice and assistance. I want the opportunity to help create systematic change so that persons who experience intimate partner violence can obtain the information they need to make informed decisions on the best way to help their families.

Q: What are you most looking forward to working at BWJP? 

Working with organizations throughout the country to create best practices that have persons who have experienced gender-based violence at the forefront so families can make decisions that are safest and work best for them moving forward.

Q: How do you like to spend your time outside of work?

Reading fiction and memoirs, painting with Bob Ross videos, riding my bike, and binge-watching Netflix/Peacock.
