It seems that protective orders and domestic violence charges go hand-in-hand. And many people tell me they don’t mind if somebody has a protective order against them or if they take a conviction for a domestic violence charge as long as they don’t go to jail. I understand that, but there are a number of reasons why you do not want to have a protective order issued against you or why you do not want to take a conviction for a domestic violence charge. There are a number of hidden and far-reaching consequences. For instance, if you are convicted of a domestic violence charge or if a protective order is issued against you, you cannot have guns in your possession; you cannot even have ammunition in your possession. That’s both State and federal law. If you’re facing either a protective order or a domestic violence charge, call us. We know how to defend you.
