Stay Away & Protective Orders

Handled by Our Criminal Defense Lawyer in Pasadena

If the police are called to investigate a domestic abuse or domestic violence call, it is highly likely that someone will be arrested. Once the police become involved, the liability on the police to not take action usually becomes too great for them to simply let the parties go on their way.

Once the case finds its way into criminal court where the defendant is facing criminal domestic violence or domestic abuse charges, prosecutors will almost automatically file a stay away or protective order, limiting the defendant’s contact with the spouse, children, family, or alleged victim. This can be a major disruption in your life, especially if the arrest lacks significant evidence of a crime. Furthermore, it can cause a serious disruption to your work and professional life, often requiring temporarily relocating and temporary residence away from your loved ones. In some courts, the court will even require the victim to attend counseling before any alterations to the protective order are made, regardless of the severity or lack of seriousness of the case.

Why Use The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller?

Hiring a competent, aggressive criminal defense attorney to fight against these charges is imperative. Often times, the stay away/protective orders can be avoided. However, waiting to call an attorney until after charges have been filed and after statements to police have been made can be crucial mistakes.

Here are several reasons why you should have us represent your case:

  • Our Pasadena criminal defense lawyer has nearly two decades of in-depth legal experience
  • During that time, we helped thousands of clients resolve their criminal defense issues

  • We are relentless in our efforts to help our clients and will stop at nothing to find a viable answer to all your legal problems

You have rights. You should exercise those rights. And the optimum way to do so is to hire a criminal defense attorney in Pasadena who handles these cases properly. Do not talk to police. Do not provide statements, even if you think they are statements which declare your innocence; they will only be twisted and used against you. First, consult with a lawyer. Do not consent to a search of your person/residence/vehicle. Demand a search warrant. Ask for your lawyer. These are your constitutional rights; exercise them!
