Brooklyn Restraining Order Defense Lawyer

Domestic assault charges can have far-reaching consequences that can impact you for the rest of your life. Orders of protection, or restraining orders, are often issued even before you have been found guilty of domestic violence charges. Even if you are later found not guilty, or if charges are dropped, you may still have a black mark on your record. That is why getting skilled legal representation as soon as possible is so important.

I am Brooklyn restraining order defense attorney Wilson LaFaurie. As a former prosecutor, I have a unique perspective on how to build a solid defense against orders of protection. I have successfully defended more than 1,200 individuals on assault and harassment charges, and I am prepared to put my experience to work for you.

Domestic Violence Charges and Orders of Protection

Domestic violence courts, or IDV (Integrated Domestic Violence) courts, are responsible for issuing orders of protection. These orders are typically issued even before formal criminal domestic violence charges are filed. If you have had an order of protection filed against you, it is important that you cut off all contact with the person who sought the order. Violating a restraining order is considered to be a criminal act and may result in your being jailed. Instead, you should contact my Brooklyn criminal defense law firm, so I can reach out to the person who sought the order.

I worked as a prosecutor in the first Felony Domestic Violence Court that was established in Brooklyn in 1996. I understand how these types of cases are tried, and I have a good record of resolving protection orders and related domestic abuse charges without the implications and penalties that come with a criminal record. When your future is at stake, it is important to get experienced legal help to ensure that your rights remain protected.
