A Former Law Clerk Who Understands the Courts

Why Fight A TRO?
Many people believe, falsely, that if they just let things simmer down and do not fight a TRO, everything will be OK. This is most often, and perhaps never, the case. There is far too much at stake to withhold advocating for yourself.. When you are faced with a TRO, we work to ensure that you:
- Can still see your kids
- Can still go to your home and collect your possessions and work gear
- Can still have necessary communication with your spouse or your accuser
- Do not have to provide unreasonable support to your accuser
- Do not have to undergo unreasonable or barbaric psychiatric testing and examination
- Can still carry a firearm, especially if it is required by your job
No matter what the situation that led up to your TRO, it is in your best interest to fully understand your rights, options and potential fallout.
If you have been charged with violating the conditions of an existing TRO, it’s important to take action. We understand the many scenarios that can lead up to this charge and the best path to take given the circumstances. As established New Jersey attorneys with a successful criminal defense and family practice, our team is here to help.
