Home Case Studies


Paul and Sandra had been separated for several months. Sandra hardly ever let him see his son.

Neither of them filed for divorce. Instead, Sandra tried hard to get Paul to just go away. She had a lot at stake financially and that would save her a bundle.

But Paul wanted what he knew he was entitled to and wouldn't give in to her demands. They got into a heated argument at the home Paul no longer lived in.

Frustrated, Sandra filed for a domestic violence restraining order a day or two later.

Sandra accused Paul of alcoholism, drug abuse and mental illness in her paperwork for the order of protection. Unfortunately for Paul, there was a kernel of truth in just about every accusation Sandra leveled at him - even though he could truthfully say the same of her.

Paul was about as stressed out as a person can get. He knew that a divorce and child custody case was just around the corner.

Sandra's accusations were damaging enough.

If he testified in his domestic violence defense, would it hurt his upcoming custody case more? Worse, could he later find himself in a criminal case if he defended himself and told the truth?

Paul felt trapped between a rock and a hard place. But he knew he didn't want a domestic violence restraining order entered against him.

Paul retained me as his domestic violence law attorney to defend him against an order protection in domestic violence court.

I concluded that it would be more prudent for Paul not to testify about the allegations against him.

Fortunately, things worked out really great for Paul. He didn't have to open his mouth to say one word in domestic violence court.

The judge dismissed Sandra's domestic violence case and the temporary restraining order against Paul was dissolved for legal reasons.

Paul hadn't dared to hope that things could go so well after all the heartache Sandra had put him through.

NOTE: Every case is different. Just because Paul achieved this outcome doesn't mean that your case will.
