Harassment and Restraining Order Violations

Many of the people arrested for violating a restraining order or harassment order feel that they have been unfairly treated by the legal system. In many cases, the person arrested for violating the order has actually been enticed by the alleged victim to make contact. In other instances, the type of contact is so brief or in such a remote form that it is difficult to imagine that it is the cause for a criminal arrest.

However, prosecutors enforce restraining and harassment orders very strictly. They know that such orders have been put in place due to some past incident or alleged abuse or misconduct.

An experienced criminal defense lawyer at the Coughlin Law Group can review the facts of your case, explain your rights, help you understand the charges against you, and provide the aggressive defense you require. We will hold the prosecution to its burden of proof and seek the best possible result on your behalf by trial or by negotiated plea agreement, which minimizes your exposure to adverse penalties.
