Knowledgeable Criminal Defense Attorney Fights Restraining Orders And Domestic Violence Charges In Moorestown, New Jersey
When an individual files a request for a restraining order, New Jersey judges tend to be cautious. Assuming some basic evidence supporting the request, such as testimony from a police officer, a judge will usually grant the temporary restraining order. This is especially true because the requests are usually made without the defendant or their defense counsel present.
The reality is that the truth is often hard to detect in domestic cases. Plaintiffs (victims) request restraining orders for many reasons, and they are not always well-intentioned. If you have been charged with domestic violence and are scheduled for a final restraining order (FRO) hearing, it is critically important that you choose a criminal defense lawyer who will provide you with the aggressive legal representation you need to fight the FRO.

- Employment consequences, including professional licenses for medical workers and child care providers
- Limited access to guns, firearms and hunting permits
- Possible military consequences, including impact on security clearances
- Impact on child custody issues
