Whether you are charged with domestic violence as a crime or are served with a Temporary Restraining Order, my office will defend you in court. You have the right to an evidentiary hearing in court and to call witnesses, including the cross examination of the victim. I also assist victims in filing the paperwork for a Restraining Order.
Domestic Violence Restraining Orders involve current and former spouses, boyfriend/girlfriends, domestic partners, or any other dating or family relationship. To obtain a restraining order, the conduct does not have to include force or violence. Harassing behavior is enough to warrant a restraining order.
Domestic Violence Restraining Orders have serious consequences, especially if there are children and visitation issues. The person restrained will not be able to possess, own, or purchase a firearm or ammunition while the restraining order is in effect and under federal law, may be barred from owning a firearm in the future. Any firearms owned by the restrained person must be turned over to law enforcement or sold to an authorized gun dealer.
In addition, the restrained person cannot contact the victim in any way which includes e-mail, Facebook, tweeting, other social media sites, phone calls, visits. The restrained person should arrange with law enforcement or family members to obtain any personal property that remains in the victim’s household. There is usually a 100 foot wall around the victim’s house, work, and car where the restrained person cannot penetrate.
If you are charged with the crime of domestic violence or served with a Temporary Restraining Order, hire an experienced attorney to represent you. Victims of domestic violence can also get free legal assistance in most court houses.
Karen Rose, I amazing , reliable and attentive . Karen , put my mind at ease , she called me , even when she was out of the office , from her cell phone. She kept me informed , and updated on what was going on with my case .
I met Karen a month ago, I had spoken to at least 3 attorneys about my case in education. I found Karen responsive, thorough, and creative in her advice. Also she is a very professional attorney who treated me with respect and care. In my dealings with her, she has always taken the time to explain thoroughly to me and ensured that I got the services needed. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer clients to Karen as I know they will be in good hands.
Ms. Rose’s professionalism, her kindness, her pragmatism and her knowledge of the law helped me-as a client—sway an entire room of university bureaucrats from an ill-favored disadvantage to a favorable outcome, wherein I was given the opportunity to finish the education that I so desperately wanted to receive, particularly as it pertains to the completion of my degree. She help me understand the law better; I know now what my rights are under the ADA; I also know what to do should anything similar happen, God forbid, in the future in regards to my circumstances. I think the real strength that Ms. Karen Rose has is that she treats you with dignity, almost as if you were an extended part of her family and she guides you and defends so that your the outcome of your case is in your favor. Hence, rather than being perceived as an obstacle to the university’s bureaucracy, I became a success, not a burden to the school, all because of Ms. Karen Rose’s help.
