Domestic Violence Injunction/Restraining Orders

A party can obtain a temporary injunction against domestic violence, repeat violence or dating violence by completing form paperwork at the clerk of court.

I have handled hundreds of domestic violence, repeat violence and dating violence injunction hearings.

I am gender neutral. Men and women hire me. I appear before each injunction judge every week. I know “how much” evidence each Judge requires to issue an injunction. Injunctions have potential serious lifetime consequences. Injunctions often preclude employment in children, elder, daycare, education, law enforcement and healthcare related fields. Injunctions affect your right to own and possess firearms. I know how to prepare you to testify effectively and present you “in the best light” before the Judge.

Many injunctions are motivated by greed, jealousy, retribution or to gain advantage in a divorce or paternity action. Many injunctions are filed to get expedited divorce “temporary relief” (such as removal of a spouse from the marital home). I am skilled at presenting your testimony and evidence persuasively. I know how to cross examine your spouse or “ex” so the judge will not consider them credible or base a decision on false evidence presented by them.
