If you have suffered physical violence at the hands of a spouse, romantic partner or another family member – or if you fear that you may suffer such harm in the near future – you can seek immediate protection by calling 911. But for a more lasting solution, you will probably need a lawyer’s help.

Protective Orders Can Help Shield You From Domestic Violence
Protective orders or civil protective orders may be filed for different types of violence. If you need protection, you need the knowledge and experience of a qualified attorney. Protective orders are filed to prevent any further acts of violence, and they require certain criteria to be fulfilled in order to meet the definition of domestic violence.
