The prosecution and defense of protective orders is an important part of our practice. And with new changes in Virginia’s law on these matters, an expanding one as well. We know that these proceedings are often a precursor to divorce and used for purposes other than what the legislature likely intended. Therefore, we do our best to make certain that the courts hear the whole story leading to the petition and not just what is written on the application for a preliminary or permanent protective order.
You should always speak to a lawyer before making any decision that may impact your liberty or finances. Consultations are always free and attorneys at LefflerPhillips will meet with you to discuss your case and provide representation options. You can communicate via telephone, email, or arrange to meet in person at our Fairfax office.
