Sarasota Injunction Lawyers
Only a Private Attorney Can Represent You in an Injunction
The Sarasota Public Defender’s Office cannot represent you at an injunction hearing. The experienced lawyers at Aiken, O’Halloran & Associates of Sarasota will work to have the restraining order or injunction dissolved or dismissed, so you can move on with your life and reunite with your family.
Although we are aggressive attorneys, we also understand the importance of family life, and we want to help you start the healing process.
Timing is crucial. Don’t wait to hire an attorney. Call Aiken, O’Halloran & Associates in Sarasota, Florida, at 941-366-3506 or contact us online.
Sarasota Restraining Order Lawyers
Often, a temporary restraining order, or a no-contact order, is put in place after a domestic violence-related charge is made such as aggravated battery. Other times, a messy divorce or a false accusation of violence by a spouse can lead to a restraining order. The types of injunctions in Florida include:
• Domestic violence injunctions
• Dating violence injunctions
• Repeat violence injunctions
• Sexual violence injunctions
If you also have a pending criminal case, our Sarasota injunction attorneys will use your hearing as an opportunity to develop facts that will help your criminal case. The public defender cannot do this. As private lawyers, we have a huge advantage over public defenders when we use these hearings to gather valuable evidence for you. Many times evidence developed at these hearings can affect a prosecutors decision as to whether or not to file a charge against you.
Even if your criminal case is ultimately dropped, you may not be able to go home unless you fought and won at the injunction hearing. At these restraining order hearings, most of the time, the person seeking the order does not have an attorney who knows the rules of evidence. Having your own private lawyer gives you an enormous advantage.
