Protective Orders

Richmond Protective Order Attorneys

Defending you against restraining orders & violations

A protective order, also known as a restraining order, can leave you with a permanent record that can have a lasting impact on your career, your reputation, and your family. Though a protective order often stems from a domestic violence arrest, you can also find yourself defending a protective order on the sole basis of another’s word, without any other evidence, and without the opportunity to tell your side of the story.

The Richmond criminal defense attorneys at Throop Law know that you have rights. We work hard to make sure your story is told to protect you from accusations, false claims, or instances of entrapment, among others. Call our firm today at (804) 215-1515.

Defense for alleged violations in Newport News, Virginia

If the court issues a protective order against you, there could be numerous conditions set which might be easily violated through what would normally be simple, ordinary, everyday acts. For example, there are often restrictions placed on your location or how close you can get to the person named in the protective order. Calling, emailing, and even texting could lead to a violation and a criminal charge, putting even further burden and strain on your situation, your family, and even your ability to see your children. There are a number of other items the court may include in the order, so it is vital to have a Richmond protective order attorney on your side, defending your rights and helping to avoid as many restrictions to your freedom of movement as possible.

  • Penalties for violations can include:
  • Immediate arrest
  • Criminal charges and a criminal record
  • Impact on any family law proceedings
  • Jail or prison time

Throop Law helps prepare a strong defense on your behalf, providing honest representation, and keeping your best interests in mind.
