Berkeley Attorney Handling Orders of Protection
Alameda County Restraining Orders
As a couple heads toward divorce, domestic violence often becomes a very real concern. A parent afraid of losing parenting time or rights may use threatening language toward the other parent, or may even lash out violently out of frustration or anger. In California, people who feel threatened or have suffered injury by a person with whom they are in a relationship have the right to seek protection under an order of protection or temporary restraining order (TRO).
If you are concerned about engaging in an emotional or physical confrontation with your ex-spouse or other person in a domestic relationship in the Bay Area, fill out our online form or call my law firm in Berkeley at (510) 644-2411 for help in obtaining an order of protection or TRO right away.
Call the Police, Then Call Me. I Have 30 Years of Experience in Domestic Violence Law
If you have been threatened or harmed, don't wait to see what will happen next, Call the police! You have the right to seek an emergency order of protection through your local police station. But remember, the emergency order obtained through the police will only last 5 to 7 days. You still need to apply for a restraining order through the courts. Getting your case taken seriously may be difficult and frustrating. In appropriate situations I can get you a protective order in a few days, OR LESS. You can be assured that I will remain on the case, diligently fighting and keeping your case at the top of the priority list, so you can concentrate on your family.
