Protective Orders and Advocacy for Victims

You know what is best for you and your family, and we can help you get the protection you need. If you or your child is being abused, we can:

  • Obtain a protective order, sometimes referred to as a restraining order, in order to keep your abuser away from you, your home and/or your work
  • Represent you and protect your rights at the hearing regarding the protective order
  • Assist you with any related family law matters, including divorce, child custody and visitation matters

Defense for Clients Accused of Domestic Abuse

Courts in Virginia take domestic violence very seriously, and law enforcement frequently favors the victim to the detriment of the accused. If a protective order is filed against you, you may not be able to return home or see your children. The accusation of abuse can impact your divorce or custody dispute. Additionally, you could face criminal charges for domestic assault or for violating a protective order.

We understand how much is at stake. Experienced in criminal defense and family law matters, we will vigorously defend you against accusations of domestic violence and any criminal charges.
