Domestic violence situations often lead to police intervention and arrests or may result in a victim requesting a temporary protective order from a court. Such orders are usually issued as a safety measure and can lead to the alleged offender being removed from the home and barred from contact.


We are prepared to act swiftly, whether advocating for a victim in need of ongoing protection or defending an individual wrongly accused of misconduct. For the victim, our attorneys gather evidence of repeated abuse or threats, proving the need for continued legal protection. For the accused, we focus on presenting evidence that disputes the claims or highlights reasons such as self-defense.

Serious allegations like those involving bodily harm or weapons can escalate to charges of aggravated assault, necessitating an even more rigorous defense.




While a protective order is a critical tool for victims, it alone cannot stop a determined abuser. Still, it serves as a significant legal deterrent, with violations leading to severe repercussions, including possible felony charges of aggravated stalking. Conversely, we also defend those unjustly accused of breaching protective orders, whether through misunderstandings or misrepresented intentions—often in cases involving desires to contact children or resolve issues amicably.
