Defending Your Rights

If you have been accused of domestic violence or violating a restraining order, our firm can represent you in District Court or Superior Court. We can present your side of the story, cross-examine witnesses and take other measures to protect your rights.

Representing You in a Civil Restraining Order Hearing

In a civil restraining order hearing, you can lose your child custody rights and be forced to leave your home. Restrictions will be placed on communications you have with the complainant. If you violate the conditions placed on you by the restraining order, you could be facing a criminal charge.

You should not make the mistake of trying to represent yourself in a civil restraining order hearing. Without an experienced attorney, you could have a restraining order placed on you, with its restrictions on your rights and lifestyle. O’Connor and Ryan can represent you with the goal of avoiding the imposition of a restraining order or at least minimizing restrictions and penalties.
