Taking Immediate Action Is Critical
A judge may grant a temporary restraining order or emergency order of protection to anyone who can demonstrate that he or she was a victim of abuse. Often, decisions to grant a protective order are based on limited evidence. While the intent is to protect victims of violence, such orders can have detrimental effects on the accused.
If someone took a restraining order out against you, contact our law firm right away for legal representation. We will immediately begin working for you and may be able to negotiate an agreement to mitigate the negative consequences.
In most instances, a hearing will be scheduled to determine whether the restraining order should be made permanent. We will represent you at this hearing, presenting witnesses and other information that puts you in a more favorable light.
We can also assist with any criminal charges you may be facing. With four former state’s attorneys on our legal team, we have the insight to anticipate the prosecution’s strategy and prepare a strategy of our own to effectively challenge its case. Our lawyers will explore all available options to reduce or drop the charges against you.
