Whether you are requesting or defending against a request for a restraining order, we can help you. As attorneys who practice in both criminal law and family law, we're uniquely qualified to litigate requests for restraining orders. 


Attorney Veronica Barton, the founder of our firm, volunteered for the Los Angeles County Bar Association's Domestic Violence Project at Stanley Mosk Courthouse, where, day in and day out, she gained valuable inside information as to exactly what judges want to hear in order to grant restraining orders, as well as what will persuade judges to deny them.


Hearings on restraining orders are essentially mini-trials, and, if you want the best possible result, you need counsel who actually routinely go to trial. While traditional family law-only attorneys rarely go to trial and are, thus, often not effective litigators, our attorneys litigate day in and day out, routinely trying far more serious cases in a much more difficult environment with extremely high stakes (i.e., 12-person jury trials where our client will likely spend 25 years to life in prison if convicted). 

(Additionally: The last thing you want is to walk out of a hearing on a restraining order and get arrested. If you're defending a request for a restraining order, you need the advice of a criminal defense attorney. As part of our services, we provide advice and counsel regarding preventing criminal charges from being filed.) 

Whether you need to file a request for a restraining order or defend against one, we can help you. We offer flat fees, hourly agreements, and Unbundled Legal Services for restraining orders.
