Protective Orders and Domestic Violence
Protective orders, commonly known as restraining orders, are put in place to protect people who are fearful of being harmed, usually by a relative or significant other. These are most commonly the result of threatened or past domestic violence.
Domestic violence can be physical or emotional. Cases involving domestic violence can be very complex, making it extremely important to have the help of a knowledgeable attorney with experience in both criminal and family law.
