Restraining orders are often sought in order to protect an individual from actions or threats by another individual. In some cases, restraining orders are only temporary without a formal and permanent order being issued. In others, a permanent restraining order is established with specific guidelines that must be followed. Whether you are seeking a restraining order or attempting to defend yourself against one, an experienced attorney can help.
At the Law Offices of Steven M. Werner, P.C. in Colorado Springs, I have years of experience handling all aspects of restraining orders for my clients. These cases can have civil, criminal and family law repercussions and I am able to advise my clients on how any outcomes to these aspects may affect their lives. Restraining orders are not to be taken lightly. I strive to see that my clients take them seriously and that restraining orders are granted only when needed, not when they are the result of false accusations.Fighting Against Restraining Orders
