If you need protection from abuse, or have been served with either a Restraining Order or Harassment Prevention Order, our attorneys can assist you.
A Restraining Order is an order that prevents a dating partner, family, or household member from contacting, abusing, or otherwise approaching a person, along with many other conditions. Restraining orders can have critical consequences such as the loss of firearms, eviction from your home, or the restriction of your movement. A Harassment Prevention Order is a similar order that applies to non-dating partners, family, or household members. Violation of either order can result in criminal charges being issued against the violator.
Our attorneys appreciate the gravity of the situation that can lead someone to seek the protection afforded by these orders, but also understand that there are two sides to every story. We understand that these orders can be violated unwittingly or unknowingly by the party who is the subject of the order. If you need to seek protection or are served with one of these orders, our attorneys are equipped to advise you of your rights and to represent you at any hearing related to the order.
