A victim of domestic violence or abuse may require an order of protection to shield them from their abuser. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Jonathan Merel, P.C. are experienced in handling these difficult issues with skill and sensitivity.
We routinely help victims of physical and/or emotional and verbal abuse obtain relief in the form of an order of protection or civil restraining order, whether dealing with an isolated incident or a long history of abuse. Orders of protection and civil restraining orders are court orders that serve to protect the victims of abuse, neglect, intimidation, harassment and/or domestic violence. These protective orders may also be obtained for child abuse, elder abuse, stalking, abuse by a boyfriend/girlfriend, or other family members. Our attorneys are also experienced at defending clients who have been wrongly accused and have an order of protection entered against them based upon the false claims.
