We can protect you from undeserved restrictions and penalties related to restraining orders
Domestic violence charges are almost always accompanied by a restraining order, which prevents the defendant from contacting the plaintiff and their family. Restraining orders can restrict your freedom severely—and often unfairly. You can fight back with help from a domestic violence lawyer.
Get Aggressive Representation from Perlmutter & Pourshalimi
Throughout our experience in criminal justice, we have handled many cases involving restraining orders. We understand the relevant laws and processes and we can provide two important forms of representation:
Restraining Order Hearings: An emergency protective order can be requested by law enforcement when responding to an alleged domestic violence incident. This type of restraining order will go into effect almost immediately, but it is temporary. In order to secure a permanent order (lasting up to 10 years), the alleged victim will have to serve you with papers, and you will have a chance to tell your side of the story during a hearing. As your restraining order lawyer, we can help you respond to any papers you are served with, request your hearing, and prepare for that hearing to give you the best possible chance of avoiding becoming victim to an unfair order.
Restraining Order Violation Defense: If you have been accused of violating the provisions of a restraining order, you could face misdemeanor or felony charges. This is true even if you believe the restraining order is unfair or undeserved, or if the protected person invites you to contact them in violation of the restraining order. As long as a restraining order is in effect, it must be obeyed, period. As your restraining order lawyer, we can provide an aggressive defense against any alleged restraining order violations. We will work hard to clear your name or at the very least reduce the penalties you face.
We Handle Domestic Violence Charges Too
As an experienced criminal defense attorney, we can of course handle any domestic violence charges that have been filed in combination with the restraining order.
