Family Law/Custody

Domestic Violence Restraining Orders

Domestic violence restraining orders are used to protect the victims of abuse when the abuser is someone with whom they have had a close relationship - a spouse or domestic partner, significant other, or close family member.

In California, approximately 33% of women and 27% of men experience intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner sexual violence and/or intimate partner stalking in their lifetimes. We strongly believe that our clients (and their children) deserve to be free from abuse and harassment by those they are closest to.

Unfortunately, we recognize that DVROs are sometimes improperly used as a weapon in heated custody matters. Thus, we also represent people who have been accused of abuse.

Whether you are seeking a DVRO or defending against one, you should seek the help of an experienced attorney in the area to help you best protect yourself. We can help with both limited scope and full representation in DRVO matters.

billing rates

Representation in a DVRO case starts at a flat fee of $1,500 before trial, but this is only an estimate and will vary with the facts of the case. We also provide limited scope representation for parties who simply need a consult or help filling out forms. These limited scope representations do not include any filings or court appearances and start at $300. Please call us or schedule an initial consultation to learn more.
