Restraining Orders

Obtaining a Protection Order in Georgia

Any allegation of family violence, stalking or threats to do harm must be taken seriously. It is nearly impossible to avoid horrific news stories about what happens when domestic abuse is tolerated or goes unreported until a tragedy occurs.

Representing Both Men and Women — With Integrity and Strength

Across the northern Georgia communities we serve — from Cumming, Gainesville and Canton to Alpharetta and Roswell, from Marietta to Atlanta and Lawrenceville — family violence and domestic abuse are certainly treated seriously by the authorities and courts. It is essential to get legal help quickly, whether:

  • You are in physical danger or enduring serious harassment/emotional abuse by a spouse or other household member
  • You fear for the safety of your children or others in your home
  • You believe you are the victim of false, unfair or exaggerated allegations

  • Quality, well-prepared representation of women who need extended protection or men being victimized by someone motivated by revenge or seeking leverage in a divorce and/or child custody case
