When the safety or our clients is placed in jeopardy by acts of violence or threats to cause injury or death, we do not hesitate in seeking ex parte (emergency) restraining orders to protect our clients and their children even if police restraining orders are in place. If our client is facing a merit-less request for a restraining order, we carefully investigate the underlying facts so that we can protect our client’s reputation and parenting relationship with his or her children.
