While in college, attorney Jessa Nicholson worked at a domestic violence shelter, which encouraged her to seek a law degree so that she could advocate for individuals facing difficult times. Since that time, she has worked as a successful criminal defense and family lawyer. Whether you need to obtain or contest a restraining order, our firm can help.
In legal terms, a restraining order is a temporary order of the court that can be granted by a judge or court commissioner after a person files a petition for a temporary restraining order and injunction. If the petition contains sufficient allegations, a temporary restraining order (TRO) will be granted and a hearing will be scheduled.
If there is someone who will not leave you or a family member alone, pursuing a restraining order and injunction may help. Additionally, if someone has taken out a restraining order against you, it’s important to protect yourself from having a court order in place against you based on allegations of things you didn’t do.
